Thanks Cary.

The light body color Vallejo Air 71.119 white gray
The dark body color Vallejo Air 71.121 USAF light gray
The green Tamiya X-28 park green
The blue gray I do not remember, I just mixed some blue and gray until I liked the color.

Used oils and dark filters to dirty her up.

Harry, congrats on the award. Your ship looks fantastic. I'm getting ready to build the same kit. Can you say what paints/colors you used?

Thanks

Great finish Harry!
Glad to see another SW kit done and in the display case (off the shelf of shame..)
What's next?
I've got my eye on that Bandai AT-AT...

Hi Harry

Wow! What a great build!

These Bandai Star Wars kits are a charm aren't they?

I was given a couple for my B-day and I think they'll rocket to the top of the to do list!

Any chance we could see some more pics of your excellent Y-wing though?

The kit is finally done.

Star Wars Y-Wing

Scale: 1/72

Manufacturer: Bandai

Paint: Tamiya and Vallejo

Weathering: Oils & Vallejo washes

Decals: None

A fun little project. The Bandai kit is perhaps the best fitting kit I have built

Hi Russell,
Yes, the kit was quick. It just falls together.
Might try Amazon that’s where I got mine.

Mike,
Might try slicing the decal in the panel lines with an xacto and use some decal setting solution to snug them down.
Is there a panel line for the engine pod nose stripes as well? No.

I built up the Fine Molds kit and one thing stands out as different, and maybe better in the Bandai one.
Other than being available for sale in the US these days..

It looks like the 'swoop' on the nose for markings has panel lines on the Bandai kit. The Fine Molds one has thick decals, that I did not get to settle in as well as I would have liked.

Wow Harry!

very quick build!

It would be nice if the Bandai Star Wars kits were as cheap as that in Australia, but unfortunately, we seem to incur at least another 50% on top!

Hi Russell,

Not that bad of a price bought mine for $33.00 and free shipping.

This is an excellent kit. Probably the best fitting kit I have assemble to date.

I must say this is really a fun kit.

But, this is it for the week, need to keep pouring kits for this weekends Model Show.

And now an update:
