Gotta get the rust out and this old shelf queen should do the trick. I spent a couple hours at the bench today, fixed few broken parts and it's ready for primer tomorrow or later tonight. The plan is a quick paint job simply to get me back in the swing of things and prep my gear for the contest build.

I love the AT-AT did you have it lighted at one point.

This one has a single red LED, yup.

I love them too. Just watched the first 30- minutes of TESB. Such great sci-fi.

Kind of reminds me why I did a couple of my more recent builds.

With paint, this should look pretty good

Thanks Q - yes exactly. A quick build to get the 'groove' back. Paint should help for sure.

Thanks John - all your fault. Reference, I'll let you know. I have some as well, have to dig it out.

Thanks for the comments guys.


Despite really wanting to crack into a new and shiny contest build I'll first follow through on this one ...to completion.


Primer down this morning - now off to do some chores.

It is nice. I did choose to slightly thin it with Tamiya thinner - it works out of bottle but I prefer just a hair thinner. Some tough man, real tough primer.

Here's some preshading. XF1 then XF2.
