X-Wing Showcase : Obiwan Jedi Interceptor

My first model from Shapeways!

This is an ETA-2 Actis class light interceptor, as seen in Revenge of the Sith piloted by Obiwan Kenobi.

The ship is to xwing scale (1/270), but the size of the actual craft is about half that of an X-Wing, which means that the model is 20mm long. Due to process limitations it came pretty bare in term of details, but it's a good base for painting. Thanks to Mel_Miniatures for designing this model!

You can find it on shapeways under the name lledi interceptor (2 ls for some reason instead of the J):

Here is a side by side comparison with the raw (cleaned and undercoated) model, as you can see most of the details where free handed.

I tried a new technique on this model : the plastic engine exhaust as proposed by:

Hope you like it. As usual you can click on the pictures for bigger shots, just keep in mind that the model is 20mm long!
