So I love repainting my Star Wars vehicles to look more realistic, and I think this may be my favorite one. This is the "not so great" release they put out before the Vintage Collection, and the paint job was pretty non existent.
First thing i did was a light coating of grey. I wanted some of the original paint to shine through to give the effect of an "old ship". then I went through with a black and dark grey and detailed all of the wear&tear. After that I painted all of the little nooks and crannies a gunmetal and gently wiped to show off the detail, and then touched up little wires and nobs with a metallic silver. Last thing was some browns on the underbelly and landing gear, and there you have it- a much more realistic and movie accurate paint job.

Wow, thank you SO much. It did take some time, but weathering ships is probably my most favorite thing to do. Thanks again for the praise

I could've sworn I left a comment on this. A fine piece, an excellent paint job sells this as a great addition to any Star Wars collection.

What you did is amazing Sir!Exquisite and excellent paint job, better than the original, you have increased the value of this vehicle. The different clear and dark grays, the dirt, the red parts, everything! I love too the pic with Han Solo, I'm a huge fan of Star Wars and your repaint looks exactly as the film version. Great work!
