Not much to write, this go around, but I did get some Reefer White applied to the fuselage.
I applied just enough white to make it appear white. In then sanded the fuselage with 800 grit wet/dry to expose the black underneath, but I didn’t want a uniform appearance so lazily sanded it, exposing more black in some place versus others.
I normally don’t do this, but this was too good not to share. Bill George did this model. I’ll let his text do the explaining:
“For season 2 of Star Wars: Resistance I was asked to design a modified version of the original X-wing. The idea was that it started as a Jedi-era standard X-wing that was souped up by its owner to make it faster and more lethal.
For the model, I started with studio scale X-wing castings from Jason Eaton and Mike Salzo as a base and added the modifications. It was a very fun project to do. From this model they created the CG version for the show.”
I’m sorry that I haven’t posted here in a while. With the current state of quarantine due to COVID-19, my workbench has been transformed into my home office desk. Needless to say there hasn’t been much scale modeling going on.
Today, I pulled out Blue Leader and started work on it again. I finished priming the entire model with Tamiya Gray Primer. Once it was dry, I lightly sanded the X-Wing to smooth everything out. I then started on the overall black. I realized that I N only had one can of Model Master flat black spray paint. At least the bottom and part of the top fuselage got painted. I will have to make a run to the local Hobby Lobby to pick up more. I hope I can have this entire thing painted black by the end of May.
