Sunday 08th Novemeber 2009 - Y-wing and Zaku II Wip

1/144 Y-wing and Zaku II Wip

Got quite a bit done on the Zaku II today, not sure now far i should go with the weathering.

Kept thinking about wanting to work on the Y-wing, one of my favorite Star Wars vehicle.

Started by removing any flash or seam lines, which was really hardly any.

Then applied lots of Pro-modellers wash Black, added some washing up liquid so to get rid of the surface tension meaning the wash flows into all parts.

Up to the top is after about 30 minutes and the excess wash has been removed. the little green spot there is a R5 unit i sculpted on to replace an R2 unit as it seems that the Y-wing with the marker on this model had a R5
