JEDI PILOT!

 

I painted the pilot to look like Luke Skywalker. Acrylic paint was used for color then I sprayed on some Dullcoat.

I found some  Instrument Panel  decals in a Jet Plane Kit. Instead of using the decals I made copies on the printer in a little smaller size. Then I cut out a section that fit and glued it on the Instrument panel.

Here are the Instruments in place. I also applied a light black wash on Luke to add more detail.

I've gotta say Ira, with this amount of imagination on a ficticious build I'm curious to see what the "stuff that exists" builds are like (i.e. cars, planes, and stuff like that) They've gotta be good!!

 

Thanks Joe!

Don't know, I haven't seen one yet... B)

FLAMES!

 

I decided to increase the Red area, so I painted a little more Red and straightened up the lines.

I didn't want to apply decals over a Non-Shiny surface so I tried some Future. I brushed the areas where I wanted decals with Future Floor Wax. It's clear acrylic and it worked very well.

I cut part of the Flames Decal off so it would fit the area better.

Here are the decals in place. I decided I didn't like the Flat Finish so I applied a couple coats of Testors Glosscoat. That's about it. I'll be posting photos of the finished Jedi Tie Wing Racer soon!

JEDI TIE WING RACER IS FINISHED!

 

The Racer was built from parts from the X-Wing Fighter, the Tie Wing Interceptor and the B-Wing Fighter Kits. The original idea was to make a Streamlined, Long Distance Racer. I actually increased the length of the Star Racer from 7 inches to 10 inches long.
With the leftover parts from this project I built another Starship, The Tie X-Wing Interceptor, Check it out In this Forum!
