Lee Ralph / FX Model Miniatures – STAR WARS: Return of the Jedi – 14″ Y-Wing GOLD 2

Hi Guys

As some of you may know, I have spent a great deal of time researching the smaller 14″ Y wing (made for ROTJ), and I’ve also been slowly working on a small run of them which I’ll be offering fully completed.

This however, is something a little bit different. While making the engine masters I made a huge mistake and placed my support area for the wings in the incorrect location inside the engine cans. This wasn’t noticed until my good friend Ed Francais had mold and cast said cans. Obviously this meant having to correct this one, and the masters. As not one to waste things, I removed the incorrect mount points, created new ones, and decided to create a Gold 2 from the generic ROTJ replica patterns I created which Ed then cast in resin.

This model was purely something that happened by way of my error and I thought it would be fun to swap out a few details on the hull and the canopy guns, and paint it, as if it were the much larger Star Wars Hero model.

The paint is once again Guy Cowen’s line of Archive-X enamels, which came in so helpful in picking out some correct hues to match Gold 2. The usual Reefer white base, was then adorned with M55 light blue, Foundation, Grime and SP Amor yellow, to name a few.

I’ve tried to photograph the model in a much more grand scale, maybe a bit more dramatic just to show for a 14″ model, it can still have quite a presence, so I hope you all enjoy. By all means if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Kind Regards…..
