legacy falcon and x wing weathering job

Post by grinchy »

I did this a few years ago now, but ive took some more pics today, the large legacy falcon is packed with details but only has a basic paintjob out of the box
I mixed up some acrylic glazes in blacks and browns and brushed it on liberally all over the falcon, working a small area at a time, brush on then using a wet rag wipe of most of the paint leaving the crevices shaded, I went pretty heavy on mine as I like the dirty look on the falcon

then i bought one of the large x wings done by hasbro
here's what it looks like fresh out the box

and with a bit of paint
