This bitch is SMALL!! And the train stuff is really great to add to something like this, cool idea! And you prove that it is not nessessary to buy a high priced kit to come up with an excellent result! More superdetailing if you dare, it will look really fine! And the base rocks!
Most of the details are good, and it was a good deal for 7 €. A friend showed me his 1/48 Bandai kit. Its of course a bit better, but costs three times more. I paid the same AND got diorama stuff and two figures for it.
I asked a friend. He said the blue markings are fictivous. They planned blue markings, but the film makers noticed that it would cause problems with the blue screen. Thats why they have red markings and not blue.
The cockpit will get more details - especially side control panels. Why? Revell was very "creative" here. Theyre just not there. So the cockpit will consist of more parts than the rest of the Snow Speeder.
May the PE parts be with us. YAY!

The basic color is a homebrew of Vallejo Aluminium, a little bit of copper, Dark Sea Grey and Nato Black. Some spots were covered with Maskol, and over it of course white. The blue markings are Vallejos "Electric Blue" (72.723).
Tada. The SnowSpeeder is complete. Now that the most challenging thing is done - the paint job - I added a little bit here and there, nothing serious. And yes, the paint job wasnt too difficult of course, because theres no camouflage involved or similar.
>painting the inner side of the cockpit glass >painting the laser cannons >drilling and attaching the Speeder to the base by a brass rod (painted it white of course )
a surprise! More soon.
Thank you everybody for looking in - may the glue & paint be with you.
