Looking Ahead – update #2

Not only is the Revenger missing parts, so are all the Vipers.  The models travelled from person to person before I got them.  No one can explain what happened to them.  The only thing I can do is paint what I have been give and make sure everyone knows that I never had those parts.

I finished the Venoms and Ravenger today, but I forgot to take some shots for you.  I lost track of time and got a “are you coming home for dinner” phone call..   My rule is Never Miss a Meal…

I do have some picture from Monday.

I have removed the crew and the gunners.  The sail was broken off.  All that I have done is to paint the hull Purple.  Every time I look at this, I expect to see Jabba the Hut.

The Venoms are missing the extra crew, the ones riding, anything that dangles under the hull and some flags…  Best as I can tell from the box top.. I don’t have the paper instructions.

Exile blue with some Cygnar Basecoat.. some details in the cockpit..  The gems are white with a thin purple glaze.  I did the canopy on one of them and managed to get the supports to match the hull.

The underside of the hull has some ribs.  I pulled out the Molten Bronze for that, the exhaust and intakes..

It looks sloppy, I touched it up with some black between the ribs today.

I mixed some white with Meredius Blue and used that for the hair, then lightened it up a little more and did the underside edge of the hull.

So, I spend Saturday, Monday and Wednesday to them.  I will take some pictures and add them to the next post.

I also worked out a deal for five Merc Models.  A commission.  I started on Tuesday with assembling, mold marks, priming and basecoat.  One model has a broken leg and it is resisting all attempts to repair it..  Another attempt tomorrow..  The customer is having them done as a gift and he requested that I won’t post photos or say what models they are…  No fun for you..  I will take picture and after this Birthday, I will post about them..
