Name of Build: "Blindsided"

Kit manufacturer: MPC/ERTL

Scale: 1/54

Many of you may recognize this scene from Return of the Jedi. It takes place during the battle of Endor, when the Ewoks unleash fury on the Empire, utilizing their primative but effective war tactics. In this case, an avalanche of logs is about to bring down an All-Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST).

The kit itself is a bit simplified but can be made to look presentable with some serious clean-up and some careful filler work. I added a grab rail made of fine wire. The model was painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered with artists oils and Vallejo pigments.

The diorama base was created using a picture frame, styro-foam, plaster and a whole slew of items found around the house and garden.

The first five photographs were done in the woods behind my house. The last photo shows "Blindsided" home on the shelf.
