A glimpse into my scale modeling hobby

These are the Droids You’re Looking For

As usual with these model kits, the first steps involve painting figures and building the cockpit. I’m waiting to do the pilot figures until later, but I did build the droid figures. The first figure was the dome for R2-D2, which is attached to a portion of the ship. For the other figure I chose to build an R5 unit, which has a slightly different dome. Both required only a little painting, and the rest was decal.

Second, I began work on the cockpit. It was simple to build with a couple decals for the instrument panels. I didn’t paint a lot of detail, but I plan to go back later and add some more to the various panels.
