B-Wing work

Today I chisseled off the random details on the enging house on my B-Wing. They were very innacurate. The MPC kit was more accurate in this area! Now don't get me wrong... I love Mr. Wong's work and I believe he's up there with the modelling gods but he must not have been able to find enough reference for this part or something.
I also chopped off the head of my StudioStarforge Sullustian and put it on a rebel pilot.

Not sure if you can see in this picture, but my sullustian has a nasty bubble in his ear. I guess I'll be puttying him up a bit too. The other sullustian that came with the set had a bubble for a face. All the detail of the face was there but if it was touched then it'd cave in.

However... the rest of my StudioStarforge figures are top-notch and completely bubble free. I guess I just got some bad ones.

I got the magnet into the back of the cockpit today. The ugly pitted area will not be visible when finished. The magnet I used is VERY strong. I can hold it by the cockpit and the body piece won't fall.

Cockpit Progress...

Tonight is just another quick update... I was trying to cast some clear parts tonight for my Slave 1 (which still isn't finished) so I didn't get allot done on other stuff.

I DID however get the cockpit of my B-Wing primed and glued in. Just needs a figure now :)

Once again... keep in mind that this cockpit is about the size of the top part of you thumb. It looks so much cleaner in person. (really not trying to brag...)

3/7 Y-Wing Cockpit

These pictures seem to bring out every little flaw. Keep in mind that this is TINY.

Sorry about the lack of updates. Been sick, then busy, then in california... ANYWAYS... Thought I'd show what's changed since the last update.

I've taken a quick break from my B-Wing AND T-16 (I always have about 3-4 projects going at once) Today's update show's the work on my Fine Molds Y-Wing cockpit. The figure is from Studio Star forge. It's VERY VERY nice! If you haven't bought a set yet then order one right now.
