Man they are tiny! Cool build i like the shape of the naboo fighter, nice to see a build of a less popular star wars ship

It's good that my WIP turn you back into plastic for a change :)
It look's like a nice and fast model to do. And nice WIP, I like the way you explaining everything.
I still got my Finemolds X-wing on a shelf waiting...

Are you going for a standard base? I sow one and it look a bit bulky, so I wander how you'll do it.

Too bad that you didn't started Vanship first :P

PS. Can you explain some more about tricky R2 decals? I'll be doing mine some time so maybe I'll need a little help from expert.

Fabulous natural metal finish, it absolutely looks the part. I must admit I'm not a huge fan of the design of these, I can see why it's elegant and interesting, it just doesn't feel like Star Wars :(

If you're on a plastic revival, I probably shouldn't mention the Pegasus Nautilus to you :) I picked one up the other day and it's a delight to look upon.

Thanks guys!

Actually I saw it on the Pegasus table at Wonderfest and avoided the temptation for now. Looks amazing built-up!

It's just that it's like5 different decals for a half a pea-sized piece. Just make sure you follow the placement instructions and only do one decal at a time. The top one is the trickiest to line up over the detail and needs extra setting solution and a little pressure with a wet paper-towel wad to make it conform nicely.
