Quick Update: Space Marine, Submarines, & Personal WIP

Both Stormtalons are complete and currently en route to their owner. I have a Stormraven and a Knight-Titan on the way to my house that I will get cracking on as soon as possible. On top of that, I was recently commissions to paint a model submarine for a family friend of mine. It should be an interesting project: the subject is the USS Michigan (SSBN-727) in 1/350 scale. The boat is near 19" when complete! I'm looking forward to my first maritime model so I'm excited to get started on it.

Until then, I have plenty of personal work to keep my busy. I am in the process of finishing Darth Vader's TIE/x1 and Luke Skywalker's Red Five X-wing. The TIE has already been painted (save for the black panels on the wings) and I have begun weathering it. Typically, TIE fighters don't get much weathering due to their expendable nature. However, this is Lord Vader's personal starfighter and considering the fact that he is one of the best pilots in the Galaxy, I'm willing to bet his ship has seen a lot of action. I know it won't be exactly screen accurate, but I don't mind.

Luke's X-wing is still in pieces, but nearing a stage where I can begin throwing some paint on it. I have all the laser cannons, engines, and S-foils built, and tomorrow I am looking to get some paint on the cockpit so I can start getting the fuselage painted. I'm still undecided how I will paint it; neutral grays or warm grays.
