Lee Ralph’s Build of the TimeSlip ESB Studio Scale Cloud Car

My recently completed Studio Scale Timeslip Twin Pod Cloud Car. This is the revised kit released some time ago, with the larger rear shrouds. No major modifications to speak of, save for the time consuming job of correcting the gun apertures and adding the correct parts.

The model is painted exclusively in the newly released Archive-X enamels, that mirror the period Floquil tones of the ’70s perfectly.

The first hue laid down, was obviously Reefer orange over a light grey primer coat. From here, various panels were picked out, and matched as close as possible from the various reference that exists of the prop.

Rust was used to to tone the nose and various other panels, and then a very light mist of SP Light Lark grey was used to further tone the other panels.

Once this stage was complete, a very light spritz misting of grime was applied to subdue the paint and also achieve a very aged feel.

It turned out to be a very fun build once some rather heavy work was completed, and a first to see this model in its correct tones.

Best Regards……Lee Ralph.
