Happy New Year!

I thought I'd show a few pics of the Black Sun Models 1/72 Raptor kit I just finished. It's a really great resin kit - well-molded and very crisp details. Struggled a bit with color, but chose Testor's Afrika Mustard for the overall paint. Hope you like it!

Good color choices, nice subtle weathering! I'll be happy if mine turns out half as good as yours did. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! I've been very inspired by the great work I see on these boards everyday.

Athan - Black Sun does make this kit in 1/48 scale. The only source I know of is the Starship Modeler store.

Whoa .. nice, and very neatly coloured too. But you may want to consider giving her a wash to get that "used" and weathered look to add some realism there. And congrats on painting the canopy. I still have mine unbuilt in the box trying to figure out the best way to paint that

Athan_tok, Black Sun Kits are produced for Starship Modeller and you will find the entire range of fighters there (the 1/72 scale MK VII and Raptor, and the 1/48 MK II, MK VII and the Raptor) but better hurry. There are only 2 units left for the 1/48 scale Raptor
