Default Re: SS ANH RED 3 V3 OK ASAP

This morning for breakfast, I shall mostly be painting thrusters.

these are very tricky indeed, there are so many reds, browns, greys & all manor of colors in them. I started with a grey/maroon base coat in the center section, then went mad with various pastels then some german grey through the airbrush. Then more pastel (grey) then a new mix of the base coat with Deck Tan added. Some splats of Deck tan & a burnt umber & a few more blasts of pastel to get where I am now......

Thanks guy's its taken me nearly all day to get these done, I'm pretty chuffed with em. I'll have to tweak em when its all assembled but only to distinguish between the 4 engines. Each has a slight different look to it.

Another quick update, I've started on the gun's this afternoon. Again, I've made stupid error's in not fixing these before it was painted. Got them on the wings but had to remove the paint first. Dickhead. Anyay its been another tough task as not only was it tough getting them on but weathering these aint that easy (that was why I left them off). I've also got to tie them in to the wings which in itself is not that easy either, slow going with these but it does seem to be coming together now.

My next step by step is the R2d2 strip, on the prop there isn't a great deal of weathering detail to this so its a bit of guess work & artistic license!!!

I started with the base coat & added some of the mix I used on the center section of the thrusters



Nest I went over the top of this with some Greman grey through the airbrush, just very light sweeps over certain area's


As this was drying I started adding pastel. This was dabbed on with a large medium stiff brush, I used various shaded of brown through to a rust color.



The nest step was to add some deck tan & black splatts this was done by dipping the toothbrush into the Tamiya paint pots, removing any excess paint then splatting away. I also used the between coat 220 grit pad to lightly sand over the top, just dab & twist or some light feathering with the pad.



Next was a mist of the original grey base coat & a glaze of rust color over certain area's. This was a mix of water a drop of fairy liquid & some rust pastel. I drip it over the area I want & dry it with the airbrush.



More dusting with very light grey pastel & a bit more misting with the bae coat & its ready for the final stages.




The light isn't great wit these pics so it does seem quite a bit off color than to the eye, its also quite dark looking than in to the eye. I still have more tweaking to do but thats the general idea.

Julien just go for it thats all I do, it really is pretty easy. Sadly I've just finished the Butt plate but got so into it I Forgot to take pics, sorry mate.

Lee it was great to chat as always bud, I decided not to wait till its all together to do the Butt, it just sought of happened....

I started witht the base coat then with the gun on really low pressure about 5-7 psi I added some German grey. Basicaly it splats more & doesn't cover very well... in this case thats good. I then added some grey bastell in all the nooks & cranny's just dabbing no brushing, then german grey splats using the gun. Some brown pastel was dabbed & a light sand with the 220 pad. More german grey through the gun some splats of white through the gun.....more quick sanding & dust & Bobs your uncle! The butt (plug) was done in Deck tan with a light dust of brown pastel & German Grey through the gun..... And relax




I kida felt inspired today so I have got the butt & the gun's finished, I could & may put the wings on tonight....?
