Bandai 1/48 Snowspeeder


Recommended Posts

NOIIIIIICE! The Bandai speeder is a work of art! You did it justice...and it is so fun to do as well. I thought the Finemolds was fabulous but Bandai blows it out of the water! Wish I had more to have fun with!.......and I wish there was a AT-AT in 1/48 too.

I'm pleased to be able to declare this one finished! It's nice to be able to finish a model for a change.

 

Spent a couple of hours painting and decalling the pilots:

This was a pain to do, and they don't look great in close up. But at normal viewing distances, they seem to do the job.

 

Here they are in situ:

And the glamour shots. I used the kit display stand for simplicity's sake, and tried to set it at a suitably dynamic angle:

I had super fun building this one, and even though I made a couple of rookie mistakes, I love the way it turned out. I'll have to drag out my other Bandai Star Wars kits now, as they're too much fun to leave unbuilt in the stash!

Wonderful Kev!  These kits really are quite a joy to put together in every sense. Maybe I need a quick Bandai build to kick start my own MoJo......

 

I can recommend it, Brian, as it worked for me! The problem I have now is that all I want to build is Bandai Star Wars kits...

Such a beautiful build Kevin. I'd be VERY happy with that outcome. Great forced perspective shot as well. Just beautiful modeling man.

 

Many thanks, my dude!

I've just bought a new motorised display turntable, and thought I'd test it out in a video using this model. It's the very first video I've uploaded to the KLP Publishing YouTube channel!

 

 

As you can see from the video, the turntable is garbage. Oh well.

 

Oh, and please subscribe to the channel if you can - even though there's only one video now, I'd like to start publishing more content there going forward, and it would be nice to have a few subscribers to kick things off!

Done!  What other sorts of content do you anticipate putting up there?

 

Initially, just some promotional stuff, which is something I should have done a long time ago. After that, who knows? YouTube is full of how-to stuff by modellers much better than me, so I'm not sure I can offer much in that space. But I'm looking forward to seeing how it evolves!

 

Oh, and thanks for the subscribe, too!
