Bandai R5-D4

Postby Ramsayman » February 12th, 2018, 7:32 am

Hey guys! This is my first ever 1/12 Droid build. Typically I've kept to 1/72 scale ships and the tiny figures that come with them - but I'm a droid freak, so I've decided I need to have a droid collection! Yay!

My first kit is the R2-D2, R5-D4 kit, and this is my completed R5-D4. I painted only the silver parts because, let's face it, that molded silver is TERRIBLE! Just for fun I used the stickers to see if they'd look any good (I have ALWAYS used decals!). Figured I could replace them if I didn't like them. Lo and behold, the Bandai stickers aren't what I remember stickers to be like. Look pretty good! Still will never use them on ships, however. Small details were easier to paint on this guy than using the stickers.

Then I dirtied him up with a Burnt Umber wash and stuff.

I like him!

No R2 yet - because I have plans for him.......... :D

Nice weathering!

Looking forward to what you do with R2
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

Well, I'm going to get the R2 BB-8 set and from that I'm going to paint R2-D2 standard. But this R2 is going to be my own paint scheme.

Going to make "Goldie" from Clone Wars?
