Looks good! Tip for the figure: A layer of matte varnish and a brown wash work wonders. 🙂

Thanks guys! Yes, I'll apply a wash to the figure. I hope it'll look better then. In the meantime I tried out some paint chipping on the cockpit hull.

Some more progress. What's really different from my "regular" plane model is that this kit is best dealt with by building it in quite a few sub-assemblies.

Looking good Bernd! I'm following along, as I've started a B-wing myself, from the old Return of the Jedi kit. 👍

All looks nice 👍

Thanks JD and Torsten! If possible it would be great to see some photos of your B-Wing, JD!
I've now finished decal work on my model. Tomorrow I'll start weathering/"washing" my brother's little space fighter!

It's looking great Bernd! Mine is nearly finished, just need to do the decals.. Too bad the old Airfix kit only came with 2 orange dots to work with. I'll look over my stash to see If I can find a few more to add.

Btw, if you use a black stand against a black background, you can get to sort of "hide" the stand. 🙂

Looking great 🙂

Thanks guys!
@Treehugger: Yes, I definitely need a black back drop. A light grey model in front of a white back drop is not ideal for taking photos as I just had to experience...

Very well done. I'm happy that I got the last one from MBK in December. These Bandai kits are a joy to build.

Thanks for your comments! As you can see I have painted the display stand black (as per my brothers request who followed Treehuggers suggestion). If I only had a black backdrop as well! I just have white sheets for my photo box. In normal times I could just go to the paper store across the street to by some decent sized black cardboard. But, of course, that shop is still closed for lock down. Once I have a black background I'll take some more photos. A light grey model doesn't really "pop" in front of a white background 😄

@Torben H.: Yes, the kit was a joy to build! I'm really somewhat spoiled now...
5. February, 17:59
Yeah black backgrounds are😎 Bandai kits are great, and have spoiled me for sure! They are so fun and easy to build, more like a puzzle really..
5. February, 18:49
Well done😎
6. February, 08:54
Fantastic job 👍

Thanks guys! I have to admit the B-Wing looks good in the display cabinet - but that's only its temporary home till I'll be able to give it to my brother (what a pity 😄).
