10 - AMT - Anakin's Podracer

What an incredibly fun kit to build, from the subject to the fit and finish I had a ton of fun.

The details are great and the figure was amazing to paint, a few gaps here and there on the pod but nothing that was too tough to fix up.

The rockets is where I had the most fun, painting with metallics and then drybrushing on different colours to make it look like it was hot and burning.

The kits base was nice but was a bit uninteresting so I decided to give it a desert look and wanted the design on the base sticking out of the sand like a relic being uncovered.

I really enjoyed this kit, I'd recommend it to anyone who asks.

  1. Unusual but beautiful build, Anthony @anthonyricco
    The detailing and painting is exceptional.

  2. What a fun off beat build. I really like the work you did on the engine pods. It looks ready for the Green Screen with an exciting backdrop. Great build really!

  3. An amazing build, Anthony! A nice divergence from our usual modeling norm!

  4. Nice work on the engines - the whole thing looks very imaginative. I have to admit, I've only seen clips of the pod race. Episode 1 was so bad I walked out and convinced them to give me my money back. Your model is far better than that entire movie.

    To tell you the truth Anthony ... this is ONE of the best top notch build
    I have seen of Anakin's Podracer ( trust me, I have seen many, the STAR WARS franchise
    STILL has me doing commission work here in PR )
    Kudos on the weathering, chipping and the detailing on the engines.
    Thank you for the fine images and for sharing them.

  6. Well done, Anthony (@anthonyricco). The weathering looks awesome, and I really like the purple power crackling between the pods.
