Wow, you are very talented. Good job OP.

She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.

Real nice work!

Hey guys, it's been a while since I've posted! This time it's Bandai's 1:350 scale Millennium Falcon. They go for about 8 dollars on Amazon, and they're so worth it; I'm consistently amazed at how accurate Bandai has been with their kits.

As usual, I used Citadel paints. Started with a primer of Corax White, and then a 1:2 mix of Abbadon Black and White Scar (Though I stopped and used Celestra Gray as that was literally the color I was trying to get lol). I lined the panels with a watered down mix of Nuln Oil, and painted the colored panels and windows. (Panels were Administratum Gray or Evil Sunz Scarlet+ a little bit of Abbadon Black, and windows are simply Abbadon Black.)

Weathering was fun! I watered down some Celestra Gray and washed the colored panels with it to simulate paint wearing off to show the undercoat, and I took a q-tip and dunked it in Seraphim Sepia and streaked it along the ship from the center-out, and did that again with Nuln Oil.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it came out! Next stop: Mini A-Wings!

Haha, I wish. This was spread out over 3 nights.

So, I've been wanting to get the bandai 1:350's for ages, but I just know I'll never paint them to my satisfaction. By the time I add the paint to my shopping cart and realistic think through painting it, I end up moving everything to "save for later."

Do you paint these and sell them at all? If you were interested, how much would it run? If you were interested in a trade, I do wood burnings (examples: https://www.instagram.com/p/BY2oalGHC_t https://www.instagram.com/p/BVoPDZuA53s) but would love to find out about commissioning some outright.

Regardless, great work.

Really nice paint job! Many years ago model air planes were something of a hobby of mine, but I never had the skill or the patience to paint them in such intricate and life-like ways. Congrats!

Nice work!

Solid work! Where did you buy the Falcon?

Hey, thanks! I just bought it off Amazon; I think it'll be labelled Bandai Vehicle Model 006. Took a while to ship from Japanese post, but it came in good condition!

Looks good! I've been painting minis a long time and always wanted to do a Falcon.
