AMT AT-AT Complete
Posted by Bish on Monday, December 27, 2021 7:38 AM

Starte this back in May and have been working on it on and off. After painting with Tamiya acrylics and useing some grey oil's, i decide to add some streaking with AK streaking grime. I meant to do just a little, but as i was adding it i liked the grey effect so just kept going and am really pleased with how its turned out. A well worn battle hardened walker. As you can see, no snow or speeders in site. I was looking for a posted to use and as soon as i saw this (being an ex armoured infantryman myself) knew it was perfect.

Thanks for looking.

Yeah that looks great Bish! I can hear the rattle and clanking of the things advancing just by looking at your model. The weathering looks spot on to me, great job!!!

I still have hopes Dragon will release their 35th kit. But since disney took over, i reckon thats wishful thinking.

I know, they really have a grip on it. Used to be loads of companies making Star wars kits. I like this idea with the base, i did it first on a TIE Striker, planing on it for most of my Sci-Fi kits.

Thanks Bakster.

That old kit scrubbed up nicely Bish!  Aside from the raised panel lines (which didn't bother me a bit in 1980), the kit looks good and is every inch a AT-AT.  I like the fact that the recently reissued kit features knee articulation on all 4 legs.

Thnaks guys. I have thought about the bandai kit (i take it that the one you mean Real G) but i just think it might be a bit small.

Bish,

The word on the street is that the recently (or soon to be) re-released MPC kit will actually come with four articulated legs.  One thing that disappointed me back in the day.

Bish,

Your AT-AT turn out fantastic. I really like the the subtle weathering, and the poster base is an excellent touch. Great job!

Looks great Bish! You could work for ILM.
