Engine test


So following on from my first YouTube video showing the main instrument panel all lit up I thought that now the engine LEDs were all soldered up and the engines glued up I had better test the LED’s were still working!

As you can see they’re all running fine, the one on the bottom right is sitting a little further back in the engine that the others but I don’t think that it is worth trying to pull apart the engines now the glue is set to adjust, other than that there is still some light bleed where either I didn’t get an even coat of the metallics inside the engines or I have thinned the wall too much. What ever the cause I am hoping a couple coats of my new AK Primer with Microfillers will solve the issue.

More Masking & A Hull


Heres the final paint going on the last of the TIE Fighter Solar panel framework and we can finally move on to something else, in this case it was just the two halves of the tiny hull which also needed a coat of blue/grey. There isn’t actually much else to this kit, just the cockpit and stand to paint up!
