A glimpse into my scale modeling hobby

Gold Fever


A full workbench!

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.


Starting on decals and small details.

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.


Notice the silver leg!

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!
