Slave-1
 
 
This is the Fine Molds Slave-1 kit.  This a fun kit to build and light.  I will be posting some pics of the build process later, but must keep them under wraps for the time being.


 


Getting the various shades of green to look right was a challenge.  It doesn't help that every reference pic looks different!
 
 

The cockpit lighting gets washed out when lit for the photograph.
 
 
I used liquid latex to mask off the various layers of chipped paint.  A stiff brush helped break up the edges.  Once the paint dried, the latex peeled right off.
