PostSubject: 'Roger, Roger!'........B1 Battledroid   Fri 20 Apr 2018, 9:00 pm

need a project i can keep returning to inbetween other things, and my IPMS branch is having a year long GB with 'movies' as its theme

not making any promises that this will get finished cos its a notorious git of a kit, so if it turns out to have too many problems it will go back in the box

every write up ive come across they have had problems getting the droid to attach to the STAP simply cos it is so articulated, so i have a plan to get round that problem......maybe......hopefully

i remember Al having a go at this and having to kitbash it into something else

had it in the stash for over 10 years, always been too hesitant to start it cos of its reputation but now its time has come

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/B1_battle_droid



and the box of bits........

and the story so far.........

he is apparently 1/6 scale.......to give you an idea thats a tamiya paint jar



its going to need quite a bit of cleaning up before paint

im planning on leaving Roger and concentrating on the STAP next......i have a bit of a plan....this kit is well known for being a bugger to get the droid to attach to the STAP so i have a sort of half baked plan to do it with him sort of casually leaning up against the STAP....all depends on just how articulated he is, but i need to think about something for the base

however its back in the box for a while since its the motorcycle CB next and i need the room to do that

done a bit more work on the STAP

whole thing is going to be a rusty brown colour but i want to make it look a bit worn, so going to spray it an aluminium colour, use latex as a mask for chips and scuffs then do the rusty colour

Nice progress! I like the idea of setting it up 'casually' instead of 'in action.'

im having to concentrate on the STAP.....need that built so i can then see how i can pose Roger

i want it a bit battered so i use the latex and sponge method to get a flaky paint look

next step is a clear coat so i can give it a black wash

having some problems taking pics cos its so tall!
thats a Tamiya paint pot to give it some scale

just needs a few touch ups and another coat of matt varnish
but now i can start to work out what im going to do with Roger.....im going scrap my original plan cos hes not articulated enough. Plan B is going to require a bit of amputation

sorry for pics being sideways....the host will only do it landscape not portrait

time to crack on with this one.......needs to be finished as it might be going to Telford!!

had the paint stripped off twice so third time lucky.......im trying some Humbrol acrylic

not planning on weathering Roger, just a wash in the panel lines, so hopefully it wont take too long



ive also made a base, since i want Roger standing next to the STAP rather than riding it

50p MDF base picked up at a show, painted black, i then scanned and printed onto photograph quality paper a ready made base i had from Coastal Kits......its supposed to be race track starting grid but i just angled it to make it a bit random.......stuck it to the base

It's looking good Paul.

I didn't modify mine cos of the 'problems', I just don't like the upright stance.
