Gary Salerno’s 1/72 BanDai “Boosted” T-70 X-Wing

I recently completed work on the BanDai “Boosted” T-70 X-Wing model. It sits alongside the 1/72 scale Millennium Falcon that I had done last year. Both models are on display at the Willis Hobby shop in Long Island, NY.

I think I achieved some good weathering effects on the model and I am quite pleased with the results that I think really show the level of detail that I tried to achieve. The close up photo shows a great worn effect that I did using a simple dry brushing technique. Most of the burn marks and engine exhaust were done using my Badger Sotar 20/20 fine detail airbrush. A light dusting of pastel was done to give the craft a slightly dirty appearance and everything was locked down with a final flat clear cote. Hope this info is helpful and thank you for all of your work and postings on the Modelers and Magic web site.
