Phil, Paul, thank you.

Here we have another First Order Stormtrooper join the party, I have the second Sandtrooper to finish and I need to get paint so as to be able to finish Boba. Next up will be some 1/144 Eduard Mig-21's for a Cold War theme at the Torquay show then a return to Star Wars and more TIE fighters.

thats some amazing (and a little scary) detail on that Vader figure, and as I'm still hoping to get my hands on some of these kits its nice to see your builds.

First off some of the progress today.

Sandtrooper's shoulder thing.


And on him


Now Boba's armour gets primed and a coat of ali ready for chipping.



Now here is the Dark Lord.



And with helmet on


Finally the TIE that I forgot to post a finished photo of.

Knock at the door this morning and the Dark Lord himself has arrived, I think but he denies it that he used the force on me and jumped the queue.

So today's work, Darth, Boba and another Sandtrooper. Should have Darth finished tomorrow, still trying to find out what shades of green I need for Boba, no luck on t'internet so far.

Don't I know it Paul.

Thanks for looking in Allen.

A little work on the TIE, final paint and decals before weathering tomorrow. The decals are still settling down.


Couldn't help myself, made a start on Boba. Not following the build sequence per say so that I can paint the parts during the build.

No work on the TIE as yet as I'm on nights this week but good news Boba has arrived. So over the weekend I'll get the TIE finished and start on Boba Fett, the only one that does need paint in my opinion to finish due to his worn battered appearance.

Any way here's some inbox pics.





Need to see if I can find a translated colour guide for Boba

Phil, they look good there, like the Darth and Sandtrooper busts.

Mal get one! If you time it right you can pick up a Stormtrooper for 15.

Well had some time before going to work tonight so progress has been made on the TIE fighter. An old Finemolds X-wing will follow and another Sandtrooper arrived today
3 of the old Finemolds Y-wings wait their turn after that, one of which I may try and turn into the two seat long range recce version.

The TIE fighter just needs the edges of the wings painted light grey and decals, canopy masks will stay on for now as I may give this one a wash to dirty it up a bit.

i built the same two kits a while back, i found the cockpit interior to be incredibly fiddly, but once past that they went together almost like a snap fix kit, and they look really nice bookending my star wars shelf-


don't remember having the little stormtrooper figures though, were they included with the kits? i know i've kept the boxes, might be because theres still parts in them. i have the x-wing and y-wing and i think there is a standing pilot and R2 included with both.

*edit* to answer my own question, as i will be using gloss white later i got up in the loft, found the old box and there were two little troopers in there, so they can painted later today.

Cheers Paul.

Now the hanger returns to being a hanger and not a barracks although....
The TIE In is complete and a TIE fighter joins the hanger.

Before the decals


And after with progress on the TIE beside it, solar panels in the background just had a coat of black.


Inside the TIE cockpit and two 1/72 figures just been primed.



.... Just noticed in a photo that a part has come adrift.

Ok calling the scout and bike done.

I've made a pre-order for Captain Phasma who gets released on 29th Feb in Japan, so should have her by late March.






Now to get the TIE In finished!

Paul, Boba is on his way from Japan but I think he is using his scale rocket pack for the flight May be Andy will get his finished before mine arrives

As far as the female characters are concerned, the answer is no, none available in this series except the new Captain Phasma although she has only just been released and is lots of money due to the chrome finish. I've read that Disney have told the licensed companies that they are not to concentrate on any female characters.

Hope you have no probs with that Lucky, You are churning'em out!

You said you have the Bobba Fett.

Is he a standing figure?

My daughter is a heavy duty Star wars Film Fan.
she flies out this Thursay to begin a year long teaching post in Taiwan,
(we are already calling it Tattooine BTW).

Do you know if this company have any Princess Leah or Padme or other lady character figures, that I could do for her whilst she is "off-planet'?

You may remember lucky I did say when you posted the first of your alleged hanger of shame that it looked like a star wars flight deck with the silver racer in the booth.

Well.....

You only done gone and done it now haven't you

The sandtrooper is my fave that you have started so far mate really nice.
