Building Boba Fett's Slave 1 Step 8: The finishing touch to the main hull.

Step 8 is basically a finishing step for the main hull which I've been working for the longest time but I'm happy to know that I've come a milestone in this project.

There's not much needed to be done in this step; basically putting the under covers of the main hull and attaching hte glass canopy of the cockpit which will finish off the main hull.

Much care is needed for gluing the clear plastic on because the fume from the glue can fog it like what happened with my Jango Fett's Slave 1. This time I used glue sparingly; just a bit on the top and bottom.

Under the main hull there are 3 panels to be installed. The smallest piece is painted gray like the color of the main hull but the bottom 2 panels are painted gray green like the contrasting camouflage of the main hull. They're pretty straight forward job. Next the skirting...
