Default FineMolds 1/144 Falcon.

Here's a project I recently finished. This was another great kit produced by FM. I decided to add the aftermarket engine grill interior details and covers. The weathering effect didn't quite show up as well as I hoped it would in the pics, but most of it shows up.

Looking real good. I've had that one (and the 1/72) sitting on the bench for years, too scared to tackle!!

Hope mine come out as well!!

Sorry to make two comments, but, the weathering is fantastic. Too many times on the falcon, people seem to overdo it. ESPECIALLY from those six engine grilles . . . . I'd say you did those PERFECT!!! Enough to know the streaks are there, but not enough to look like you just set the airbrush to full and pulled the trigger like a lot do.

Top notch!!

If I may ask . . . what did you use for most of your weathering?

And what colours did you use to paint it? Your base colour looks pretty much spot on too from what I can see.

For the weathering I used various shades of pastels with soft hair brushes as well as doing some preshading.

For the base coat I painted the entire model gray and then did a light white layer which enabled me to have varying subtle shades of gray show through, particularly in the more detailed areas.

Default Re: FineMolds 1/144 Falcon.

At the risk of getting a little off topic . . . with using pastels and soft brushes, I'm thinking specifically of the streaks behind the engine grilles there . . . . do you do anything to keep it so consistent over the highs and lows of the greeblies? Whenever I've tried using pastels in that area I find the pastels stick to the highs, but nothing goes into the lows.

You could give a tutorial on just the weathering on this. Looks just right and it's easy to go overboard especially with this ship.

Ego1138 that's exactly why I use only high quality soft hair brushes. It gives a MUCH smoother and uniform appearance, and more evenly gets into the deeper areas. The brushes are more expensive than standard brushes, but definitely well worth it in the end.

Yeah...it's definitely true what they say Trek. Sometimes less is more. The Falcon is absolutely one of those projects where it is easy to go overboard with the grime.

Okay, thanks for the tip then. I guess I'll have to give it a shot with a better brush. (I'll admit, any time I've tired it, I've been using used old brushes of shit quality)

I'm assuming otherwise though, you're just grinding some pastel down to a fine powder and applying like anything else?

Yep! That's all I do. Applying it in small amounts at a time in good lighting is also key, otherwise over weathering will almost certainly occur.

That is one nicely painted Falcon!!!

The details on the grills gave it a notch up. I don't even know they have AM parts for this kit. The grill and interior detail comes as a set? Where and $$?

Looking forward to more of your builds.
