Here’s my completed Slave One. This was a great exercise for my weathering skills. I used both the hairspray and salt technique along with AK Interactive’s Heavy Chipping Fluid to duplicate the look of the studio miniature. The hairspray/salt method was great for creating the smaller spot like defects while the chipping fluid was ideal for the larger exposed areas. Didn’t light the kit. Overall am very pleased with how it all turned out. Great to see the work in this group build by you guys.

I've been building models since I was age 10. I've kind of gone in and out of the hobby through the years because of schooling and career but now that I'm pretty well settled in, I've been building pretty regularly over the last 4-5 years. Although I've built some WWII ships and planes in the past, I now mainly build sci-fi ships. My favorite subjects have been Star Trek and Star Wars but also have built many from 60s-70s sci-fi TV. A couple of yrs ago I started a Youtube channel just to put in my 2 cents and give advice. Surprisingly it hit 1M in 2017 views and still growing. I enjoy scale modeling as it provides an escape from daily stresses and routines. It also has been a great way to stay in touch with my childhood memories and simpler times. I must add that I have met some really great people since becoming active online in the modeling community and I look forward to continue my contribution to the hobby.
