Building Boba Fett's Slave 1 Step 9: Starting on the undercarriage.

Finally I have finish the main hull so can move on to Step 9 where I can start working on building the undercarriage of the ship. If you think the main hull was too much work then you haven't seen the undercarriage yet!

There are more detailed parts involved with the undercarriage. Most of them have to be painted with different colors and then meticulously glued together. To start off I gave the whole piece a once over Tamiya's AS-16 Gray then I painted certain areas with Tamiya's XF-63 German Gray.

This makes the parts stand out as part of the engine. It looks easy but it's actually very time consuming and you need a steady eyes and hand to carefully paint only the areas you want, some areas are deep inside amongst all the other pieces...
