ROCKET ON A  STICK!

 

I am making a base for the Jedi Racer and it will support the ship with a length of Piano Wire. I drilled a hole in the bottom of the body large enough to fit a length of 1/8th " Tubing. The steel wire will fit in this tube.

I slipped two more lengths of tubing over the original to give it strength. They are held in place with Zap-A-Gap Glue.

I positioned the tubing so that it fits inside the hole in the wings...

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

Yes!

There is a ridge all around the "Solar Areas", it makes it a lot easier to hand paint with the ridges... B)

FILLING IT IN!

 

I am filling in the slots under the Wings.  I marked off the cut lines on 2 lengths of plastic strip.

Here they are glued in place.

Next I cut and filed the strips to fit tight up against the bottom of the Wings.

WHAT IF?

 

What if you mounted the Tie Wings differently? I have had several requests t show the Jedi Tie Wing Racer with the wings reversed. Here are a few photos of one way it could be done...

Another View, this one showing the Side Vision Problem...

You could also mount the Tie Wings upright and attach them to the X-Wing sides, this would take care of the side vision problem...

WASHING...

 

I applied a black wash from The Detailer to the Silver areas of the Racer. I'm starting to make plans to add more color to different panels. This should be Fun!

Here is a quick mock-up!
