Millenium Falcon - 1/144th Bandai kit
« on: July 10, 2022, 02:43:29 AM »
This was my first attempt at weathering a model.  Although it didn't turn out how I had envisioned it, I am quite happy with the end result.  It's straight out of the box, no light kit, nor photo etch, nor resin.  Just a simple build to experiment with painting techniques.

You're a braver man than I, Stuart! Weathering is the big reason I've not gotten into Star Wars kits despite my deep love of the franchise. You've done a terrifc job!

Very cool. Just watched a video on the models built for the movie.

Wow!  Thank you all for the kind words.  I didn't expect so many people to like it.
