Star Wars R2-D2 [WIP – Domed Astromech Head]

Posted on April 9th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Despite almost constantly waxing lyrical about the Bandai Star Wars plastic model kits, I must admit there have been instances when they’ve fallen short of expectations – Darth Vader being the prime example. Sadly, R2-D2 is another kit with a major fl…

Eyes are the scariest part of the miniature painting process. Hours of hard work can be rendered immaterial if one botched up the painting of the eyes. That I have stopped using any form of magnification for my miniature painting sessions didn’t help. …
