Chris Ford / SciFord – Lasse Henning – Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back – Studio Scale Twin Pod Cloud Car

I wanted to share with you my latest completed kit. It’s the latest release from Lasse Henning of Norway…his studio scale Bespin Twin Pod Cloud Car. The kit’s a beast, in a most fantastic way. And he created it old school style by scratch building the master by hand and then creating and pouring the molds. I just had to get one of these already having purchased his Vader Tie Fighter (seen in my area on your site) some years ago. This Cloud Car kit has been logically designed for easy completion. The parts have virtually no flash and only minor clean up was necessary. Each cockpit has been left open for the builder to do with as they want. I created and installed a miniature diffusion box (like the sort I use in my commercial photography) for each, in front of which I put a section of a Ugandan sunset from an assignment I had some years ago. I also installed small blinking hazard lights. At the same time I articulated each of the pilots heads allowing them to rotate 180 degrees. The ideal paint I would have liked wasn’t available so I created my own using 1.5 jars of Tamiya Orange with a small squirt of Tamiya Red and mixed well and shot thru an airbrush. I think this is the quickest build I’ve ever done. It wasn’t meant to be but it was so much fun I had a hard time stopping each day.

Stay safe.
