    A Little Slave 1 Action

    Here are a few beauty shots of my 'almost' complete Fine Molds ESB Slave 1. After building one of these, it's hard to even look at my old AMT kit...

    That's pretty bad *****, but I have a soft spot for my vintage ship with the not movie accurate HIC.

    It is a sweet kit. Goes together easily and I only had to use a minimum of putty for seam filling. I'm probably going to have to pick up a Jango version and build it as a companion piece.

    Great looking model! I have the Jango version of the kit but it's been damaged after
    a couple of moves. I'd love to pick up the Boba version sometime.

    Where did you get the model and is there a color list for it?

    I got the model off of eBay a couple of years ago. I'll post a list of the paints I used shortly. I've got to go run an errand or two. They are all rattlecans and readily available at WalMart or Lowe's.

    Here she is all finished...well...99% finished. I will probably continue to add a chip here and there as time goes by, but for now she's done.

    Did it come with the stand?

    Yes. That's the display stand that comes with the kit. It also has a white metal 'Han in Carbonite' which I don't believe came with every kit.

    A Little Slave 1 Action

    I tried to find the surprised "SEEKER" face on my PC so I could post it regarding this model the other day. Regardless, this is one breathtakingly beautiful job AFFO$! The paint job is exactly what one would expect coming from you.

    Yeah, that white metal Han only came with FineMolds' first production run. Don't know how many kits that was.
