Good evening to all.
After the imperial cruiser, there was another mecha emblematic of X bomber to reproduce in model: the imperial carrier.
Actually, I was impressed when I was a kid by this insect design that represented a wasp or an ant, in short it scared me. A design more disturbing than the imperial fortress which is for me the only failed ship in the series, but this is only my opinion of course....
It is really an antagonistic aircraft of the bomber x that we see in every episode and that really has a terrible look.
I started this model during the containment for covid 19 in France, that is to say from March. I did it alternately with an Airbus A380 from Qatar Airways that I saw at Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport where I work.
After studying the photos of the series, the 3d models that Crash kept, I started my plans. There are no plans, so I extrapolated, I did what I felt. The difficulty is that as always the proportions, the colors change according to the photos of the models. The head is perhaps more rounded than what I have represented, it is difficult.
I used styrene sheets of different thicknesses, parts recovery of different models for the greebles, a pen interior for the front barrel, a hardening modelling paste (milliput) for the rounded parts. For painting, airbrush and model paints (tamiya and mr hobby).
Here is an original model in 3d (for the moment.....)
Come on, let’s stop talking, let’s take pictures.
