Default Re: DeAgostinin 1/18th Scale X-Wing Fighter Partwork Sort Of WIP

I thank ye most kindly one and all!
Well the next three posts will have this at the finish line so lets be a gettin' to it.


OK then, short order update.
Multi colour panels and Red Squadron markings done via various Tamiya rattlecans and Vallejo acrylics.





Heavily thinned enamel dark grey paint for the panel wash.
Applied, let mostly dry then thinners dampened cloth wipedown. Went a bit heavy with the rubdown in certain places for the start of the paint wear.







Some stencil decals made up. Had an Aruebesh font so why not.







That done, time to make a mess of the paintwork for the weathering start. Some german grey splotches for small hits here and there.
Combo of wet and dry grit paper used both ways, some small chisel end scraping and the odd scratch of a scalpel blade where appropriate.





Ground pastel chalks and graphite powder for the first layer going on.
The underside of the fuselage and one wing done.



Same deal extended to the whole underside.



Top side got the same kind of treatment.



A few touchups here and there which made up the second and third layers of the weathering but done enough.
As a basic run not too bad but there will be adjustments as per clients wishes.

More to come!

Onward with more bits!
Gave the landing gear a looing at. No idea if the client actually want's it but a paintwork excersise if nothing else.
Main gear piece as is.



Some seam filing, a splash of dark grey, dark wash, light grey drydrushing and a lick of silver later get's this.



Same deal for all three.



A repaint of the supplied nose gear doors and a fit look see required.





Dry fit dress rehersal time methinks.





So far, so good.
Painted the insides of the removable engine panels.





R2 sits way too high and the canopy will require some work, this is how things look just as is.



Now non opening canopy was requested so it shall be done.
After only a small amount of work and some 5thou" clear styrene as the supplied glazing is rubbish, here's what we got.



Somewhat of an improvement.
Expected and requested weathering changes also made.





Some excess dirt/wear spread about and to the mans satisfaction.





Last bits and pieces to sort coming up next!

Last bits!
Stand sortout now.

Lump of 20mm diameter brass barstock got a spin in my lathe. Used an 8mm bolt in the top, threaded the brass and ran it down nice and snug.
Chopped the top off the bolt and cleaned up.





Base is just 12mm thick MDF lumps glued and screwed together.
First of many coats of black on it.



Had to have a look.





Yep, liking it!

Stand embellishment, a plaque.
A bit of polygon pushing about got this render.



Printed, clened up and painted. Primered, matt black base, dry brushed copper then the same with some silver in it.









And in place. The stand got a bit of self adhesive aluminium foil prettying up.



Final job to seat R2 properly.
Had to remove the poor fellas feet.



He was originally supposed to be removable but client said not required so a bit more hacking and hardwiring the dome LED in and the fella was sitting as he should.





Looks better.
And that's it, a done deal and thumbs up from the man so all good!



Vid of the done deal and the light up/things-a-moving vid on youtube.

That's all untill I get the proper pic gallery and vid sorted.
I have put all this lot and some more indepth stuff nuts and bolts all on my site in a 7 page WIP.
Link below to page 1.

Enjoy!
