Considering you were apprehensive about weathering, you've done an excellent job, and it's no marathon to finish it.ThumpUp

Its been upper hull and mandible recess painting time - I started the same as the De-Ag painting guide .

Black base , then I sprayed a couple of lighter grays at low pressure and low angle so paint was only hitting mid / top of raised details.

I followed up with lots of dry brushing falcon base colour, gun-metal, aluminium etc - finally a touch of oil paint to get the rust effect








Most of the upper hull is primed , preshaded and base coated. Engine section has has all plant on parts added and therefore will not be finally attached until the model is completed :) *note to self * remember to wear your glasses when using phone camera !!

Great work RJ. I am getting ready to start my build after receiving my first month yesterday. I too was looking at using the Arduino to provide more lighting control, ramp control, etc. Do you have any more to tell about that part of your project?

You bet I am starting a diary. I've already learned so much here from everyone...and I hope to contribute something back during my build. Now I just need a nice topic title. Mmmmmm. Confused

A long time ago in a Galaxy far far away , I started building this 'heap of junk'....

but many distractions later, including little models (1/72 and 1/48 aircraft) , DeAg's R2-D2, buying a 3D Printer & playing with it :) , changing job, falling off my bicycle and breaking wrist and hip its been fun times.

A 3D Printed Lightsaber...



The Correllian Shipyard has been reopened and the various departments are back working..

So this project went from and out of the box build , to a few additions in the hold / corridor areas, lets add some warning lights... now lets throw away the elctronics board and go Arduino Nano + BLE , learn XCode and create a bespoke personal app for mac and ios (will use blynk or alike to prototype functions)

1st Order has been to design and print a set of exhaust vents - not 100% accurate but much better than the kit supplied version.



Next step Priming and painting
