I would have to say that both of them are quality renditions of that classic scene.

I'm going to have a slight change in plan.  My choice of aircraft gray won't work because I don't have enough paint in the bottle and I don't know when I'll be able to make it to a hobby shop.  So I'm going with a back up of dark aircraft gray from a rattle can.  On the bright side, no one can show me a real TIE and tell me I'm wrong Stick out tongue

 

Sounds kinda REBELlious if you ask me...

Just sayin. Wink

I thought the members of this group build might like this.  It's a re-make of the famous battle between Darth Vader and Obi Wan Kenobi on the Death Star.  Someone did a fantastic job on the CGI.  I apologize for interrupting the GB.  Smile

Gary, while that was an "okay" redition of the fight scene, this is thee best ever, IMHO:

Thanks for that Gary. I thought it was well put together, and it made the fight more interesting. I liked the link back to Ep III.

Took a quick glance at it last week and thought it was pretty cool. Not sure it fits all that well into 'SW' the original film but still very cool.

Cheers guys, got a few ideas for the weathering. Thinking of trying hairspray which i have never done before. It is a good size, its about a fot front to back.

Clint, now there's not a lot to it.

BTW Bish just how big is that sucka? I'd guess that with the Trade Federation battle droids being almost human sized in 1/32nd she'd be almost 30cm long?

Looks really good so far Bish! I can't wait to see your weathering on it. That's one of the things I love about Star Wars vehicles, they always look like they've been used

Looks cool Bish! Looking forward to more.

I got home yesterday and started cleaning Han up. Poured some plaster into his legs for a little lower weight. Will put photos up when I have something to show.

Made a start on thye AAT a couple of weeks ago, just been working on it now and again. This is the kit.

Got the main hull together. Got a bt of sanding and filling still to do, especially down the front piece.

And the turret is complete, not to many issues there. mainly sanding away the flash.

Now my 432 is done, this will be my main focus. Not much to this kit, hopefully should be ready for primer by the middle of the week.

cwalker, I really like the new color, is it a custom mix?
 

SB, it is a custom mix. The instructions say to use 95% light gull grey and 5% blue. First I put in too much blue and got the darker color. So then I added more grey back in until I got to the lighter color. It still isn’t the color they show in the instructions, but it’s close.
