the boys are back in town!!!

Post by Rob » February 13th, 2020, 12:37 am

Red 1 - 6 in 1/72 Bandai...close as I can get to screen accurate colorways...And ya, i need an overspray of buff or something to tone down the brightness of the colors - but i was lazy and only went with rattle cans and never broke out my airbrush. Maybe one day - I'll go back and fine tune em, but for now they are what they are. Looking forward to comments, complaints and critiques!!!

Awesome! I've thought about doing this, but haven't gotten around to even one of 'em! Personally I don't think they need toning down, even. Maybe they look brighter in person?

Looks like Red 5 is standing by. :lol: I haven't built even one X-Wing yet, but yours look fantastic. One day I'll get around to building a few, but probably not that many. Funny how the average person probably thinks that all X-wings were painted the same in 4-6 (I used to), but even just a little research shows they are all different. We're seeing them in bright lights against black fabric, so they will stand out a bit. I think they're just fine the way they are. ;)

I've actually built 6 X-Wings, (plus two T-70's), but I paintede them in the color schemes described in the book X-Wing: Bacta War. I realized I need to get at least one more X-Wing to do as one of the movie ones. Or maybe one of the ones built but NOT seen in the movies like Red-12.

They look great! You spray can control must be superb. I tried spray can a few times and they came out thick and boring. Are you Banksy?

Excellent! These look great.

Been my goal to try to pull this off ever since I got decals for 1-6...haven't even started yet. Maybe this is my motivation!
Need to build 30 models per year until I'm 90 to clean out the stash. Time to get cracking!
