« on: Sun May, 21, 2017, 05:55:AM »
It has been a looong time since i didn't post something on here!
I started a new star wars kit! I need to do some star wars stuff!   ;D

It is the jpg productions' hailfire. I'm now cleaning the kit and getting it ready for painting.

I'm planning to do an out of the box kit, with a sand base.

Here are the pictures of the parts:

Here are the next steps:

The holding of the lower gun will be made with a magnet. That part looks like a starship from another univers 
 ;D



Start of the assembly and the paint:

thanks Quaralane  ;)

Next steps:

I continued to add vallejo white primer on vallejo black primer to make contrast:











I still need to do the missiles racks.

Then I decided to do the main body using Lifecolor UA 224 paint. I made a first layer straight from the can via the airbrush, then add some drops of Vallejo white primer and made some highlights via the airbrush, then add more highligts using the same paint adding more white and this time usiung a brush.
I also started to make weathering using the sponge technic:

Here are the sides of the droid:
Base color: Tamiya nato brown
Salt technic
Then Lifecolor UA 224



And the wheels:

thanks  ;)

darn, it has been a long time since I posted here, sorry guys!  :(

Here are the next steps:

Assembly of the wheels holders:





Weathering of the central parts:



Weathering in progress using tamiya product:
Technic used: Juice, sponge, rust leak with enamel paint


(We can see white areas on that image. this was not planed. This is a bad reaction between salt technic and futur dullcoat. Not planed, but really good looking I think  :D )









Testing the missiles racks:



Wheels test on the base







Gluing the wheels parts:



I then add some metal effect using an HB pencil. After that, a coat of futur with tamyia matt effect sealed everything together.
