Chris Olson’s BanDai 1/48 AT-ST

This is my BanDai 1/48 scale AT-ST, painted after the AT-ST seen in Star Wars Return Of The Jedi. I used filming miniature photo references for my paint job.

The interior cockpit is lit with a single SMD LED attached to the top front of the AT-ST so the pilots can be seen inside when closed. The top is still removable, and I added metal tabs on the top and the read of the cockpit so when the top is attached, an electronic contact is made so the LED can illuminate when turned on in the base. The base was the regular kit base, with some added styrene around the edges and then built up with some gravel, moss and a branch.

Very fun build. Running wires through the body and legs was a bit tricky, but it all worked out well in the end.
