She’s looking sweet mate 👍🏼 ,
I’m wondering , early in your build you said you were happy to just apply weathering to the supplied hull pieces . Did you do that for the bottom hull completely ( obviously with painted panels ‘ red , greys etc ) , and if so , what did you use for the weathering details ?
Thanks for sharing ,

Yes, thats all I did with the bottom hull.
First of all I used a brush with a very much diluted black paint to make the lines on the hull more visible, after that basically I just use a medium plain brush, at the beggining I thougth about using the dry brush technic, but some parts of the hull were too rough, so the effect was not as if it were real dirt, so what i did was make a thin line with the brush, and then pass over it a lightly wet cloth in the direction the dirt should go. For the blaster and scratches marks I used a small welder to get a more realistic effect
I made weathering with a dark grey and a mixure of black and orange in some lines to make a rust effect.
To see the details here you have a better picture:August 31, 2017 at 12:53 pm #28921
Important, I forgot to tell that after use the very diluted black I clean that zone with a cloth tooSeptember 1, 2017 at 9:52 am #28922
Thanks for sharing . That battle damage in #28920 is impressive 😎 . When you say ‘small welder ‘ , do you mean soldering iron ? . How are you planning to light her up – battery or adapter power ?

Yes, soldering iron, sorry for my english, I’m planning on use a power adapter, I’m scared about having the batteries sulfated and damaging something because of that, I’ve take a picture at daylight so yo can see the real colour of my Falcon:September 2, 2017 at 6:42 am #28925
Your English is so much better then my Spanish ( muchas gracias ) !😉 .
That photo above is so cool .

I liked very much the idea of Daz of using mirrors so the corridors look longuer, so I bought a set of plastic mirros that had enougth mirros of almost the same diameter of the corridors, the link just in case someone is interested:
I cut some CDs to glue the mirrors to the corridors
So that’s all the work I’m going to do on the interiors, my Falcon will be hangging on the wall so I would no have the chance to see the interiors too often, and i’m very lazy 😀

Hey Kazan ,
Those Blaster marks near the rectenna base look terrific ( like little craters ! ) . Did you use the soldering iron again or something else ? . Your weathering videos pretty cool too .
Thanks for sharing ,

Hi dude!! No, I used a little electric drill with a metal tip to give the holes a cone form, and then used the cutter to make notches arround the cone, after that I just painted them:
