Star Wars A-Wing Kit Masters
Well as it happens, back again and still more to sort out...
Yeah I know, trust me, I know...
Well to the back detail plate, and some bits and pieces required here.
I didn't get a good pic of the part before I pretty much scrapped it bit it's the one on the left of the pic, just below the original engine part.
All in all, a bit...well...not much to write home about really so that got kicked out.
Along with some 1.5mm thick sheet, some selected 1/32nd Tomcat landing gear parts and a few specially chosen donor items...
Scrap parts that looked nice to be honest...
From a 1/35th Tamiya Chieftain tank and some hacking about, this is what we do got along with a reworked detail part to go inside the tidied up F-16 intake lookalikethingywhatchamacallit.
I cast two of the detail parts, intake bits likewise and make them the masters for moulding up malarkey.
A bit of a fitment test, or just slung roughly into place if you will.
And this may give you some idea of what it will look like.
And after some primer paint plastering, we get this kinda setup.
A wee bit better than what was originally supplied I reckon...but then that's just my opinion.
So then, next bit.
Some casting later and the parts for the cockpit look a bit like this.
The back wall and backseat rest, Instrument panel base (will have 3mm white LED embedded and wired), shroud and panel proper and the seat bottom and base plate.
Lastly the side walls and upright front wall.
I'll be covering the assembly of parts later.
Now one additional part, instrument panel display screens.
After a bit of PC and printer pratting about, we get a sheet of rubdown decals.
Which close up look like this.
So cut out, applied to some 0.25mm clear styrene and trimmed along the red lines.
Then dry fitted in position and time for a look see.
Well not bad, it's a start if nowt else.
So above and beyond this, some casting has been occurring.
And this is a selection of the pile o' parts we do got
The light and medium grey parts were the first castings out of the mould.
Pigment was added as it makes it much easier to see defects/casting problems.
The light colour ones are the resin used neat.
And that's that for now, another update happening soon so until then...
