Another one of my ship repaints. The Low Altitude Assault Transport, also known as the LAAT Gunship, was used during the Clone Wars by the Republic Army.
Like my previous Star Wars repaint, the base of this Hasbro toy was pretty decent, but the paint left it feeling a little flat. I painted all of the creases in the hull with black and brown, then wiped clean. I painted on some more little details throughout the ship's hull, then dry brushed all over for that rusted, battle damage look, and then painted some silver spots to give the effect of hull paint chipping. I repainted all of the missiles on the ship for depth, and dry brushed the engines with silver and black to look more metal. Did a shellac spray over the whole ship to give a more metal than plastic appearance, then I mixed up a light matte brown and did dry brushing on the floors and bottom sides of the ship to look as if it was doing battle on the sandy planet of Geonosis.

It takes courage to battle ready a factory paint job. Looks more realistic now.

Thanks a lot! This has always been my favorite thing- I can remember doing this to my ships as a kid (although I don't think they turned out like this)
