Wow, that's a really cool repaint! Might have to do that myself if I can find a MCC.This is a project I've always wanted to do if I ever found a beat up GI Joe Mobile Command Center. Earlier this summer I got one with a bunch of other Joes and got to work.
More pics to follow.
The TIE Defender is god-like. It's beyond awesome. It's been a while since I've played TIE Fighter, but I remember how infinitely sweet the TIE Defender was. Now you have one. Your home is truly safe from the rebel insurgents!The wings for both ships were scratchbuilt with plexiglass, then detailed with a few cast pieces from Vader's fighter and the Interceptor, then finished with various rods, half rounds, etc. from the hobby store (in the end, the Defender took over 150 pieces for each wing!). The etched lines in the Clawcraft wings were done with a sharpened screwdriver.
Yeah, that thing is absolutely amazing! I wish he was still on the boards. I would love to see what else he has made as he said he has more vehicles. My dream would be to commission someone to make a sail barge like that for me. It would be so expensive, but would be an amazing centerpiece to a collection and I know no matter how long I worked at it, I could never make something like that.Did anyone else see JMX's sail barge on p.21? It's truly out of this world. It's amazing: full size, full interior - it's a dream vehicle? How does one person even do that?
Weathering is definitely a process in itself. I find that working in more progressive layers does the trick nicely.Hi mr Geek, is there a way to open up the rear without losing the lectronics? So to rearrange them, and open up the back panel like the two in the front?
Very nice project by the way! I find the looks very realistic and neatly done - which is not easy with wheathering.
I have done the outside too and am waiting to do the inside. I want extra lights added for the inside.

Fun to see the jedi temple part ;-) Enjoy the rest of this beautiful project!
Great festering wokkets of splinge, GeekSummit! Amazing detailing and weathering!
