Gold Leader

Gold Leader in Work

I guess I love building Y-Wings! Truth be told, the Y-Wing is my favorite. Hot in the heels of my Red 4 build, I started work on Gold Leader.

Gold Leader is a bit different from the Red Jammer that I used for inspiration for Red 4. Overall, it’s the same, but the pipes are a bit different on the Gold ships.

For this build, I’m changing things up a bit. I’m adding all the pipes before I do any painting. This similar to the way ILM painted the filming models.

Adding pipes

The paint process is the same on this one as the previous build. I did learn something new, the yellow strip is a very specific yellow: Southern Pacific Armor Yellow. It’s spot on!

Lots more work to do on this one, but it’s coming together.
