I found some model kits of ships from The Force Awakens on sale the other day. I had some birthday money in my pocket so I figured 'what the hell' and bought myself a Millennium Falcon.
It's snap together kit so I didn't expect it to be very complex. It was so simple, however, that I was very unsatisfied with it once I got it together. Part of that was that the kit was 'pre-painted'. Which in this case meant that parts that weren't bare plastic were painted colors. So I hit it with a liberal black wash followed up with some white dry brush. Voila!
I'm generally pleased with how it came out. Then I came across this.
Then I cam across this Diorama on the Replica Prop Forum's Facebook page that uses the same kit. I may have to do another one.
