Another kit by Richard at Sovereign Replicas. This is his first offering in 1/72 scale. It is the Star Wars Extended Universe, Galactic Empire Scimitar Bomber.

Like everything from Richard you get so much in the box for such a small price tag. Here is the kit out of the box.

Assembly is very straight forward and flies together. In no time at all she is assembled, primed and ready for paint.

Pre-shading the end in black and other areas of the ship. The front fuselage needs to be painted black so you can apply the masking stripes before you lay down the base color. The masks that come with the kit are for the front fuselage stripes and the window canopy. Awesome!

The base color is made by mixing Tamiya paints. Flat white with a drop or two of black to make a nice light grey color. Next add in a drop of silver to give it a slightly metallic sheen. From here you start adding blue to get it to a stormy sea blue color. Just eye ball it and you should be ok.

After this, I layed down a SUPER THIN coat of Future Floor Polish. Once dried I started masking off panels and highlighting with Tamiya Flat Black. Once that was done I put on another thin layer of Future Floor Polish

Got in the shop today and finished this bird up. Shot of everything ready for final assembly and a shot showing the drilled hole for mounting.

The ship assembled, decals added and a final base coat of Tamiya Flat base mixed with Future Floor Polish. This is a great kit and I would reccommend it to anyone. Shot next to the Fine Molds 1/72 TIE Fighter as well.

Final Build Pics Coming Soon!!!
