Default Fine Molds 1/48 Snowspeeder

Wow . . . my first ever "completed" model for RI.

Not sure what to say . . . small model . . . thing is maybe 5 inches when complete. I'm reasonably happy with how it turned out. Tried a lot of things I'd never tried before . . . salt weathering, some different weathering and streaking techniques. And I'm happy I did, and learned them. Now I know how to use them better for next time.

About my only complaint (besides noticing 2 seam lines WAY too late to be bothered fixing), is that I think i weathered it TOO much. But again, this was more for learning than anything.

Comments and especially criticisms are welcomed by this newbie!

That is in no way overweathered. It may not match the originals weathering but itis not overdone or out of scale. Good work!

Well thank you . . . . it was a really fun build. Good confidence builder, given how small and quick it was to build. If it wasn't for my own shitty work ethic, this thing could have easily been finished in a weekend.

And LOVE the engineering. Shy of the air brakes, the fit of the pieces is so tight, you could EASILY assemble it without a drop of glue.

Fun build.

Great weathering! Snow speeders look best when they are war torn and ragged. Paint chipping looks nice and I especially like the back exhaust grill metalized look!

Nice job man! I wouldn't say overdone either...heavy but not overdone. Those speeders must have gone through all types of shit-snow-storms and such. Kudos.

Thanks guys. Well, its still heavier than I wanted it to be from the outset. But yeah, for some reason I always imagined that the snow speeders were the ones that took the heaviest beatings. Guess just the rougher environment, the temperature changes, and doing most of their work in the atmosphere . . . so was looking to weather it good.

I like the fact that you ventured into different techniques. Its what myself always do and yes each time we learn to do it a little differently. The colors went perfectly with the look. The damages can be finer and you know how plus the variance are working out, well distributed. Good job!

Thank you kindly.

Will take what I've learned on this one, and apply it to the Y-Wing which should be arriving any day now . . . . and then . . . on to the Millennium Falcon!
