Lunadiver Stingray & Fireball SG (Prowler) Ma.K.
Hasegawa 1/35 (kit 64003)

As you probably saw in my building threat I really enjoyed building this kit. Hasegawa did, as usual, a great job. There was a little filling and sanding to do but even with the complex shape of the Lunadiver, so many curves, no major operations where needed (except the cockpit, wohaa). I build the kit pretty much OOB but added some details by scratch building. Opening some panels and adding pipes. Only the cockpit was a little disappointing. No problem if you close the big hatch but in the open position you mainly get a seat in a big hole… Well, nice opportunity to do some scratch building :-).
A great plus of the kit is the addition of a stand and two figures. There is also a pilot figure included which I didn’t use. It took me some time to figure out how to ad the Fireballs to the display without using visible help constructions. As this is a Sci-Fi GB I decided to go for a zero gravity scene.

For painting I used Amber Grey from the WW2 IJN aircraft colors set by AK interactive combined with a very nice red from Akah. The next one will be pink Paul, I promise ;-). For the weathering I did some chipping by brush, followed by a dark brown wash and some streaking effects by AK interactive.

That’s about it, up to the final pictures… thanks a lot for your support and encouraging comments in the WIP and I really hope you enjoyed this build as much as I did :-)

You worked your magic again. Seriously, you have developed great skills to create, build, and finish. Great photos too. I like the shadows.

Thank you very much guys for the nice comments. Like the shadows too, they nicely show all those beautiful curves of the Lunadiver. And it looks kinda space with the black background :-)

Stunning build Fabian and congratulations [biggrin]

Although, really, I feel you should have placed a bit higher,
... I reckon you deserved at least second place [wink]

anyhow, Cheers for a fun GB and looking forward to some Russian Revolutions [thumb]

it was amusing watching Bobby struggle saying Red Rugged Russian Revolutions haha [biggrin]
