Attempting New Techniques
Not much painting time this week, but this weekend I did get a chance to move the Blood Claw along, taking the opportunity to try out a few more techniques I’ve note attempted before.
I also stuck him together at the end of the painting session, as now seemed to be as good a time as any.

Experimenting with Glazes and Layering
Decided to experiment a little with glazing on the Blood Claw. The original idea was to lay down basecoats and transitions with the airbrush, but I found it looked “too airbrushed” and crude, so by the time I broke out the brush, I couldn’t resist trying to glaze and layer.

Preparation and More Construction
Most of today’s work was related to preparation to the cockpit parts.

Already Started on the Next Model
With having today off work, and being quite pleased with the result of the X-Wing, I thought I’d crack on with a “new” simple model. Although I still have a Blood Claw on the go, and had started looking at my old Millennium Falcon again, I wanted a smaller model to chip away at too. The one I chose was one I bought around 6 or 7 years ago from eBay; an old AMT/ERTL A-Wing.

Although I’ve had a little painting time this week, mostly it’s been spent on practicing blending, glazing and feathering techniques on the Blood Claw. This takes a while, and doesn’t show up well enough on camera, so I’ve not posted anything about it. He’s very much turned into more of a test model. I think there’s a small chance I may just figure out how to smooth out transitions better with a brush, which means I may relegate the airbrush down to undercoating and basecoats, but that may be getting well ahead of myself hahaha.

Worked on my Bandai Poe Damerons X-Wing this evening.
This is one of Bandai’s “vehicle” models, this means there a box scale rather than a specific consistent scale of model, and they are really quite small – palm sized really.

Little time for hobbying this weekend, and with Wolves playing on TV last night, I wasn’t able to get the brushes and paints out until this evening, and even then after catching up with the Walking Dead. Finished work late again, which did not help either!

Picking Up Where Left Off Years Ago
A long time ago, not in a galaxy far, far away…
I bought a Millennium Falcon model from Amazon. I opened the box with excitement, only to be hugely disappointed by what I found. Flimsy plastic, poor sculpt quality, and worse; the most horrendous cockpit “detail” you could imagine. In fact, it’s an insult to refer to the cockpit as having “detail”.

Limited hobby time this weekend; I didn’t get a chance to do anything until Sunday.

Colour Scheme Mind Change
After a day of no painting on Wednesday, I popped into the hobbice (hobby / office), and took a look at where I had got to with the Blood Claw. Although I’d only changed the panel lines to blue on the body, I already preferred how it looked, and was feeling happier with the model.
