Following seeing the new Star Wars film, I was inspired to build one of the excellent Bandai Star Wars kits. It was a choice between an AT-AT and the Millennium Falcon, but the AT-AT won :grin:
As ever with Bandai, the kit is excellently detailed and engineered and the fit is sublime! It is billed as a snap-together kit, and could indeed be built wholly without glue if desired although some of the joints may come apart easily without a little (carefully!) applied glue.
I painted it overall in Humbrol Steel Grey acrylic, with Gunmetal accents and detail, and then used a variety of Flory washes to add some streaking and general grime. It still needs a matt varnish but it's too cold and damp to go out to the garage and spray it at present :roll:

Nice photos they make it appear to be much larger than it is

Wow, that looks great, Iggie. Bandai certainly make some excellent looking kits of these Star Wars types.

A fine model, Iggie. I'm sure the studios will wish to use it when filming the next episode; it looks good enough for that job. Nicely photographed.

Thanks James, Shaun & 59'
It's a really enjoyable kit to build and remarkably straightforward. With some basic weathering it really looks the part very easily!
