Hi to all,
This is my first post, so here goes.

I've been admiring everyone's work here and would like to share my version of the Star Wars Speeder Bike.

I scratch built a few things here and there. Packs were for a long duration mission idea I had.

Thanks for sharing all the great work and help!! - Athan :)

Thanks all,

I might add the rider in the future. I have such a short attention span...:rolleyes:

I moved on to kit bashing some 1/1000 enterprise kits.

All I did was paint the base color and let it dry completely. Dot the areas I wanted with liquid mask. I painted the top color then removed the mask bits. Pretty easy and it gives a very convincing chipped look. I think the key to a nice chipped look, is to be able to "see" the depth of the layers of paint. As a side note: if you paint the top layer a little heavy, the layer of paint will "tear" a little as you remove the mask, and that makes it look very random. Athan

do you "spatter" the liquid mask on to get the random look?

that's the problem I have with using it...It always looks too "planned" when i do it

Yeah, I know what you mean. I just start plopping it down and use a few different size sticks. I did remove some that I thought was too even looking. It's one of those "less is more" things!! I tried to pay attention to "where" the chipping would occur and I think that helped a lot.
