because i have been waiting for material from china for ages and i
could no longer work, i started another project in between

AT-ST hasbro toy conversation

now what is a toy conversation?
some star wars collectible toys are just too ugly to put at home, but offer
a solid base to make a nice model out of them. in addition, they are relatively
cheap and larger than model kits. Sure there are also large model kits, but
they can quickly cost 400-500 € or more. of course you have to invest a little
bit of work but it's worth it. so a toy conversation is a a modified toy.
in this case i tryed to turn a hasbro AT-ST toy into a modell.

this is not the final result...i have to repaint/airbrush it and
i planed to put it into a little diorama...so far i did all modification
and primed the AT-ST

what I've changed:

i closed all open plastic columns and gaps with plastic filler
reshaped the complete window section and added new window covers
closed the large head cover and filled the gaps with plastic filler
cut of the knee fender from the legs
cut free the recesses on the legs
added a new handrail
added tubes and cables to the head and the base
added details on the back of the head and under the head
added details on the inside of the legs
added the running springs for the lower legs
closed all holes for screws with plastic filler

here we go again with a total reconstruction of
a ugly revell 1:29 scale x-wing kit. oh lord i realy changed
everything on this kit.now it is ready for painting.
this will be simular to a blue leader x-wing as shown in rogue one
but it is the prototype version which was never on screen like that.

thx my my friend but until the whole thing is finished it will take a while. the paint job will be quick but the base will take time i want to build the base like the one in the picture below...at the moment i am gathering the materials

blue squadron x-wing over death star 2 section diorama

the combination has a bit of artistic license...i know...
anyway i don't care. it didn't turned out exactly as i wanted
it to be but unfortunately, idea and execution are often
two different things
i'm still pretty satisfied with the result

You ever have Modelo, WaroftheGods? It's like Corona, but a bit better. Mix it with a lime and you're in business.
