I decided to go with a set of one-off engines that we’re 3D printed by a friend of mine. These engines are scaled down from a 1/18 scale X-Wing kit.
The detail on these engines is outstanding! I really appreciate him printing these for me.
I removed all the parts from their supports and clean them up. Doing the usual process of Tamaya gray primer, flat black and reefer white (WOB) process I painted the engines.
I decided to change things up a bit and paint the interior of the exhaust nozzles copper instead of the normal painting process.
Next up, I will start the weather in process and then attach them to the Blue Leader X-Wing.
