THE COMPLETED MODEL & BUILD RETROSPECTIVE
|Read for inspection.|
The model was now complete! I had to take this photo with my iPhone because the memory card on my Nikon was corrupted (doh!). It isn't a bad picture, I just know I could do better. When I get a new card I will snap some new pictures from different angles.
When it was all said and done, this entire build took no longer than four days. That is extraordinarily quick considering how nice of a model this is and for me especially, considering how slow I build and paint things. Even though I used no new techniques, as my first scale model, I feel like I learned a lot about model building with this under my belt. This model looks absolutely gorgeous in my new display cabinet as well.
Stay tuned as I turn my attention to Darth Vader's TIE Advance/X1 in the coming days!
