“Good Shot Jansen” MPC AT-AT Diorama
This kit was given to me about 10 years ago from a former club member. I started on it then and it eventually got shelved and shoved back in to the box. Recently, I decided to start building some of my Star Wars kits and this one need to be completed.
I used Tamiya Surface primer as the base coat of the model. Once dry, I sprayed the head, neck and body with glasscoat. Once that dried, I applied an acrylic black wash to all the parts and sealed with dullcoat. It was much easier to weather as separate assemblies than as a complete kit.
I used 22 gauge wire as my tow cable (anything less wouldn’t support the speeder), I drilled a small hole in the spot where Jansen hit the AT-AT.
I used Woodland Scenics Snow and Woodland Scenics glue to create the Hoth landscape.
I added some additional detail to the turret in the background and mounted the AT-AT itself to the base.
