Star Destroyer from Bandai

April 11, 2022 · in Sci-fi · · 4 · 1K

I was also done with the Star Destroyer. , 1: 14500 scale. It had to be sealed here and there, unlike Death Star II. The real challenge is painting, these ships are usually brilliant whites in the movies (except for the Jedi returning from the blue-filtered Battle of Endor).

I built the surface from several layers:

black primer, Mr.Black Surfacer 1500

thin layer matt white + tamiya xf-19 sky gray

darker surfaces, temporary shadows with xf-19

highlight bright panels in matte white

dry brushing with white artificial oil.

Well, nothing of that seems obvious, but I hope you like it.

    Those Bandai Minikits are fun builds. I have a couple here.
