Mark Fuhrmann’s Beautiful 1/10 T-47 Snowspeeder Scratch Build!

I have decided to try a second scratch build model. A studio scale Snowspeeder 1:10 scale. For me a big challenge as this whole modelling still feels new to me.

I decided to build the Snowspeeder as this is one of my favorite models from Star Wars. Another reason was that I thought that I won’t need to vacuum form any parts and could build all parts somehow easy. At the end it wasn´t so easy, for me very complicated and much harder than the Turbolaser. The main reason for this was that the Turbolaser gave me some freedom to build it in scale, the Snowspeeder not. If there is anything out of scale you see it immediately and it doesn’t look good.

I have bought a Bandai Snowspeeder 1:48 and upscaled it as good as I could. I have also used all pictures which I could find online.

I wanted to have a big 1:10 studio scale model, like what they have used in the film. The model is about 55 cm (about 22 Inches) long, completely scratchbuild from styrene parts and I am building it for 6 month now (only building time) but started 14 month ago. Meanwhile I took an 8 month break from the build as I couldn’t see it anymore. 😉 Many parts needed to build twice because I made mistakes.

Now as the model is very advanced, still not finished and not painted, I wanted to show it to you and would be very happy to hear what you think about it as you are very experianced.

Almost all parts except the fuselage are not glued yet because I want to paint the fuselage first. All other parts are fixed with tape which looks not perfect but good enough for the pictures I think.

I hope you enjoy the like of my Snowspeeder.

Thank you and best regards from Germany,
Mark
