The latest addition to my fleet : a Royal Guard Interceptor!
The Royal Guards defend the Emperor flying heavily modified Interceptors, adding shields and light speed drives to the standard chassis while keeping the legendary agility of the interceptor.
This sleek craft was a blast to convert and paint, using the standard Tie Interceptor and adding sculpted winglets.
For this model I changed my usual ball magnet technique for a steel ball bearing and circle magnet. This gives a better point of contact, needed because the model is heavier than a regular small craft.
The winglets were sculpted in green stuff with instant mold for the pattern, expect a step by step soon!
As befitting an aggressive craft, I went for a slightly more glossy finish compared to my Ties, this should help it stand out.
I used my usual airbrushed base color, oil wash and brush highlights technique to paint the red areas.
The inside panles were kept darker on purpose as they should receive less light.
Hope you like it!
