I have finally finished my degree!!!! There are a couple of things I need to do to the train, I need to finish the front detail of the cock pit and stencil my clients initials on the sides of the train, I also want to weather it. Stenciling the initials will be a crucial thing to do. I did not have enough time nor brains to do it in the last few days. I want these initials to look perfect and if I rushed the job, it could have ended up in a big fuck up! This way I also have more time to discuss with my client the final design that he wants for the initials. I am workin with him on that right now. Though when people see the model, they will think it's finish, but not quite yet. The small changes I need to do will make this train look even better than it already is!! I love it.
The droid looks great too! I simply love all I've done this year! But surely didn't come easy.... I think I've lost a lot of weight with this joke too...
I used a 2 base color scheme for the droid. First I sprayed the whole model with a "dove grey", then I masked the sections to remain grey, only exposing the parts to be sprayed "british racing green". Then, I removed the masking tape and the model had the 2 color scheme done, later I used a small brush to paint some detail on each contrasting color (green on grey & grey on green) before I did some weathering effects.
