Building Boba Fett's Slave 1 Step 10, Part 1: More work on the undercarriage.

Moving along to Step 10 sees me continuing with the undercarriage of the ship. There's so much to do here; painting gluing, more painting and gluing...

Looks like this section is going to take as much time as the main hull but I managed to get through a lot over the weekend. That's what I like about FineMolds, they pay much attention to details.

I had to paint these 2 semi circle wheels that go on the sides of the undercarriage. Don't know what they're called but an overall color of Tamiya's XF-53 Neutral Gray followed by a mixture of Tamiya's XF-64 and XF-49 to finish off the pieces.

The wheels are then glued to the sides of the undercarriage which also had Tamiya's XF-65 Gield Gray painted to some parts of it. That's just half the job done, more to come...
