Big commission project on the heels of the last MC-80/30 diorama. Anigrand’s Avenger and JPG’s Acclamator cruisers. The latter will be a Clone Wars deco. Lots of parts, lots of resin.
The Acclamator builds up pretty easily. There was a minor amount of warpage to correct on the lower hull. I also got the clear engine version so lighting will be much easier.There’s a moderate amount of detail that I’d like to go back in add in the form of trench and surface greeblies… The circuit is the standard cool white LED for the windows but now has the blue LEDs on the flicker part for the engines.
The big ol’ Avenger falls together pretty easily as soon as the parts are trimmed and reshaped a bit. The larger hull pieces are in bad shape and I need a heat gun to fix them up properly. I’m still not sure if I’ll put an internal armature inside…if anything it’ll be wood, at least connected to the support rod. Once again, there’s a moderate amount of detail that I’d like to go back in add in the form of trench and surface greeblies…but that’s once everything is together. I’m also thinking about making the neck/bridge structure removeable so it’s easier to pack and ship to the client in China 😛
