Ken Spriggs has entered his Snowspeeder in the SciFiantasy 2018 MOTY Online Contest. Here is what Ken has to say about his build.
This is the 1/144 scale Snowspeeder from the Bandai combo set. I painted out with a black base while still on the sprue then put a base coat of a very light grey, almost white. After applying the provided stickers, I weathered with some oils and little-powdered pastels.
The homemade base is Styrofoam over styrene sheet. Resin rocks poured into a mold. I used railroad modeling materials for the snow and glued a part of the kit base into it for the stand.
