More Blue Leader

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.

Still have to paint the s-foils…

Too good not to share!

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:

Early Resistance X-Wing

“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.

S- Foils closed.

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.”

Crazy times!

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.

Model Master Flat Black provides the base coat prior to applying the Reefer White.

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.
