Here are some early pictures of Porkin's X-wing. Everything on the model is done except for maybe a final topcoat of matte varnish. I got some 3/16" acrylic rod in the mail today that I will use to mount the model to a wooden plaque.

Though I had intended on keeping Porkins for my personal collection, the same client that commissioned Luke, Vader, and the TIEs made me an offer on this model. I'm happy to report that he will live out his days along side his wingman Luke!

I started this blog in 2012 shortly after I started the hobby. I had no modeling experience and for whatever reason I decided to start compiling my work and thoughts into this blog. Since then, I've matured as a painter and writer and I look forward to continuing that trend!
Porkins is nearing completion! The oil paint has dried and now a couple of coats of matte varnish are drying on the model before I move on to discoloring the individual panels with different oil colors. I'm not sure what to do with the base at this moment, but I probably won't use the Death Star tile that came with the kit.
