Awesome build again. 

 

I thought you were going to put screens in the four round thrusters. Then I thought, (I wonder where you can get small round screens to put in those?) uh, never mind…  :)

 

Thanks Edward!

I think you can find little screens at the hardware store... B)

NEW COLOR!

 

I finished the body work and applied some White Primer. Then I sprayed on a few coats of Tamiya Flat Yellow...

That's a very suitable color for this build. A wash will definitely set that off! All that detail is practically begging for it!

HYPERDRIVE SUPERCHARGER!

 

I decided that I needed some kind of Scoops or Intakes on the X-Wing Body, so I started looking. I found this part in the B-Wing Fighter Kit. Looks like it will fit the body with some minor fitting and cutting.

 

DSCN7271J_zps8243bb45.jpg

 

I removed the Snap-Tabs from the inside and sanded the inside smooth so it fits the Body better.

 

 

DSCN7276J_zpsa5202ea1.jpg

 

 

I did a little carving on the rear of the piece to look and fit the X-Body better.

Here is a quick mock-up...

HYPER LIGHTZ!

 

I got some rectangular Rhinestones at the crafts store. Then I carved a little slot to hold the Rhinestones inside the Hyperdrive Supercharger...

 

DSCN7302J_zpsd5075ce8.jpg

 

I cut a strip of plastic and fit it in the Supercharger. Then I glued it in with Zap-A-Gap and Baking Powder.

 

DSCN7305J_zps2a96b217.jpg

 

Here it is with a coat of flat yellow, in place. No Glue Yet...

PAINT BY NUMBERS!

 

I painted the rear top section of the Body with Tamiya Flat Aluminum.

 

DSCN7445J_zps92e3baf3.jpg

 

I am enjoying hand painting the different sections and details. It reminds me of Paint By Numbers or a Coloring Book, lots of  fun and relaxing too. I'm planning to paint more sections in different colors. The Screened areas on the Wings were painted with Flat Aluminum too.

Is that all freehand? I'd have to mask everything to even come close to a line like that.
