Armored Hull YT-1300 Conversion #5 Finished

All Done. After some drybrushing over the red areas I thinned down some Army Painter Dark Tone with acrylic extender and washed the whole ship then wiped off as many big panels as I could to leave the shading. That's why it's still shiny in some areas like the access pits, I really hope that stuff actually dries eventually and hopefully not shiny. Then lots of rust streaks and strong tone streaks then cleaning up the occasional panel that had gotten too dark before adding paint chips to the red and some grey worn down to metal chipped areas. She's a touch darker than my other two YTs but I'm pretty happy with the result. I may have to add some more stains to the regular Falcon.

Some more finished photos on my space mat.

- Side note you may well have seen my ship in some other places before, I'm kinda archiving my FFG forum posts here, also I've been lazy not updating the blog so I'm trying to catch up on a lot of painting projects.

or possibly on the tabletop if you play in the Sydney area as I've been using the ship as Chewie's pimped out armored ride.


  1. Wow, that's a real "Old Republic" look! Fantastic. Also, holy pipes on this one, I bet it can definitely do the Kessel run in under twelve parsecs.

  2. Amazing job, I am on #3 right now. Had issues with using lego, so am building an alternative engine block. I would love your opinion when I am finished. You can see my progress over at

  3. Colin that's coming along really nicely. Looks like your engine deck is a bit wider than mine, I made mine slope in a bit. really like your chipped paint job on the red striped YT, very nice job using a sponge for the scratches it's so easy to over do it. Your Firespray was parked in some water for a while it looks like wow that beast is rusty.
