Studio Scale TESB Imperial Probe Droid Dispatch Pods – Whatever happened to them :D

Ok .. so trying to catch up a bit, on what I’ve been working on the last couple of years …

Let’s start with the two TESB Dispatch Pods. At the end of 2011 I posted that they where ready for primer … so I hit them with a layer of primer…

and then a bit of preshading … I had some issues with my airbrush at that point, so not the smoothest layer of preshading … but preshading none the less

After that I mixed a color I felt was close to what I could extrapolate from the few reference pics we had, and gave the two pods a layer of base color .. after that it was a matter of painting details and a bit of weathering

I was going to a Show with the models, and therefore just made a quick base for them

After that a good buddy of mine, helped making a much nicer display base. And there you have it: My two finished Studio Scale TESB Imperial Probe Droid Dispatch Pods
