You could spray the ship with some coats of primmer and them I'm sure you could find the color at a shop. To tell you the truth it would be cheaper to just go buy the new ship.Val Da Car said:I want to paint some of the red jedistarfighters into the current repaint of aqua....but I need to find some better paint brands from the hobby store (cause testors are too watery) and what is a good suggestion for converting dark red to a light aqua color...
plus how do I get to the aqua color to paint it...(3 parts white to 2 parts mint green?)
or keep painting until it is covered or just remove the paint and start fresh?
Well as long it is worth it to you. My time is worth more to repaint something that is sitting on a shelf, you know what I mean? I hope it turns out well, good luck.Val Da Car said:Cause....kbtoys.com has a sale the jedistarfighter for $9.99 each (but on 10/26 there will be a 20% off sale) and I don't want a repaint for $20 since I would rather army build for the money.
two jedi ships for $15.98 and paint for $1.50 and $2.00 for primer it is totally worth it to me.
Do you have any photo editing software like Photoshop that can compress the size of your pics? Or you could add it to the Photo gallery section and just post the link to it.cubicleslave said:My first attempt at building a custom (from scratch)... its my take on the Forward Command Center of the Army of the Republic, battle of Genosis. (I know, I know, the original is round, and mine is square... but's its easier to build a box). Completely scratchbuilt with ABS plastic, some recycled from old computer case parts. The base swivels (an old PC monitor base), and the control panels light up (battery pack). I didn't take a photo with a SW action figure for scale, but it will contain at least two figures sitting in the chairs and three figures standing.
P.S. having problems uploading the pix, the files are too large. I will have to put them up on a webpage and post the link.

An ambitious project, the imperial troop shuttle/landing craft... there are very little reference photos available. You can find it in the starwars.com databank under "Imperial Landing Craft". Someone built a custom like that on FFURG and they posted the recipe, maybe it will help:Val Da Car said:I am currently considering two concept vehicles.
The first on is the Clone Wars V-19 Fighter (by Kit Bashing the T-16 Skyhopper and a A-Wing).
The second one is to make the mini troop shuttle seen taking off in ANH behind the sand Troopers....
