Thought Id try customising a Hot Wheels tie fighter.
Still a work in progress with emblems and details to go.

I wanted to see what my modelling talents might be like using off-cut wood from work. I set to work a few months ago making a pit droid. Obviously, not screen actuate, but very recognisable in the SW universe.

I'm pleased with the result so far. still some finishing touches to be added. Covers to hide the nuts and bolts, as we all know they don't exist in the SW universe. A bit more weathering and I'll be happy.

Building from scratch and making my own patterns, I was impressed that it stands on its own. But 1cm too short. Should have made the aerial longer. Bahaha.

Next build, I'll spend a lot more time on accuracy. But for now, I'm winning over more kids in the neighbourhood to Star Wars.

My quarter scale X-Wing and 1:1 'Naked' C3PO are slowly (very slowly) coming along.

Thanks Matt and Kiwi HW. I've made the cabinet of sorts. Still deciding the interior look. I was very taken with your hard concrete look. (Sorry if I described it badly). Just need to find the time to finish. 10-12 hour work days doesn't leave much time for Star Wars.
