Slave 1.5 - an MHS build
« on: February 23, 2016, 12:30:17 PM »
Hi all.
A couple years ago I built the Fine Molds Slave 1 kit, turned out pretty good. I had some MHS parts around, and I thought It'd be cool to try out the paint scheme on a saber.
All the same techniques were used in finishing the saber. Same exact paints too, they may not be 100% to the movie, but that's ok. The chipping and weathering effects are done with masking fluid, weathered more with pastels.   Also gave it 2 coats of matte clear at work, the finish is very durable.
Some areas have up to 4 layers of paint, also added some kill stripes ala Fett's helmet. I tried to keep the lines and patterns fairly asymmetrical, as it is on the ship.
There's a black triangular pattern in black on the emitter opposite the kill stripes, but it doesn't contrast well with the gray there ( it was an afterthought anyway )
The 4-40 and 8-32 screws are just decorative, but they give a cobbled together and repaired a bunch kind of feel. Anyway, here goes.

I suggest getting a braided blonde hair extension to attach to the kill-key to echo his right shoulder braid collection
