Over the weekend I redid a bunch of pipework to match the rough look of the model built in '75. "Red Jammer" was the prototype for the other Y-Wings built for production and no two models were the same. When this one was painted the Y-Wings were going to be part of Red Squadron. This model was never re-painted since it was boxed up and sent to Pinewood Studios to aid the set builders for Yavin IV.

STUDIO MODEL:




I re-worked all the pipes to match the available references, shortened the forward canons Notice the R2 is an unfinished dome. I need to build or print something to match that. The model is primed and I airbrushed a darker base coat to match the appearance of these reference images. I will lighten and darken areas before I get into the battle damage & weathering. More to follow.

Adding some markings. I'm doing a few extra just to flesh things out a bit.

It looks odd when it's so pristine yet has chipping in areas. More to come.

Almost done. I have a couple of DK Lark markings that I'll hit but I'm hungry and this could use a bit of dry time. Tomorrow I have some panel lines to punch up and a bit of oil wash here and there. I also need to beat up those engine housing caps.

It looked so new a few days ago. I'm a worse spaceship owner than Han Solo.

Snack build. The paints I'm using are ArchiveX and they're color matched to the original floquil colors ILM painted with back in the 70's.

I need to finish up the 1:20 Veritech so I can stop feeling guilty about my foot dragging.



That Perfect Grade Falcon needs a paint job but I keep collecting reference for it. That's a grail piece for me.

After that I have a few options...
