My workbench has been a little full lately. I have been working on the FineMolds Y-Wing with most of my free time. There were a ton of small bits and pieces to attach to the main body, and the best part is that they wonderfully covered up almost all of the seams. I only had to fill two small seams where the top met the bottom in the front. All that is left to assemble is the landing gear.
I have been holding off on painting the cockpit so I can match the color to the decals because it is a unique shade of blue. I plan to paint the ship up in the guise of Gold Leader.
My other project has been one of Bandai’s great little 1/12 figure kits, C-3P0. He will look great next to my astromech droids. I have come to think of these figure kits as a great diversion while I wait for paint to dry or don’t have a lot of time to work. So far, Threepio looks great, and I have only done a little bit of extra painting. Some of the wiring on his stomach needed to be a different color, but everything else has been molded to look great. I should be done with this guy soon and have all of my thoughts posted. Until then, summer is quickly coming to an end, and I am running out of valuable work time. Off to the workbench!
