The majority of the work is now done to the Snowspeeder and figures, which had to be heavily modified to replicate as their crashed selves. Notable modifications were made to the Snowspeeder seat, which was a way to cheat Dak’s slumped over positioning, as well as the front of the ‘speeder’s guns and leading edge. This was accomplished with Aves Apoxie Sculpt two-part putty and plastic card stock.
The Luke figure was modified using a 1:48th pilot figure from a Tamiya Fairey Swordfish model, so that he could be in the proper pose. Putty was added to the figure in the form of the flak vest, as well as the lower back and buttocks.
Separating the heads on each pilot proved to be a delicate challenge, so as not to cut away any surrounding details!
After cleaning the primed figures and smoothing the join lines, I will add more putty to finish the detail work (suit straps, etcetera).
Paint work begins very soon, and I hope you enjoyed the latest update!
