1/28 -- STILL Playing Catch-Up

Small update... Started drilling the rivet holes

I also did some work on the cockpit but I guess I didn't take any pictures.
Finally caught up... No update for the 29th though. I have work :(

1/27/08... Small update -- Still Playing Catch-Up

Today I finished the replacement piece that goes above the engines.
It fits very nicely. I might detail it up a bit more and then cast it for the other side.

First Project: Fantastic Plastic 1/72 B-Wing 1/26/08 -- Playing Catch-Up

On this piece there was a really bad stub from the resin that was nearly impossible to remove. I ended up just cutting the piece out and making one from scratch. (piece not finished in this shot)
On the main wing I noticed that many of the panel lines were drawn wrong compared to the reference images I had. Maybe there's another studio model with panels like this but I'd rather just make it how I want :)

In this picture you can see that the cockpit needed to be reshaped slightly. It was kind of lopsided and asymetrical. Once again, maybe this is how it's supposed to be, but I just want to make it how I like it. I only needed a little strip of styrene and some putty to fix this. Very easy

This is my bench...

Yeah I know it's a total piece of junk but it works for now. I should be getting a new permanent work area once we take all that food shelving out and move it to another wall.
