The ”Ghost”

Hey, look what I found parked in the woods!

 

The Koensayr BTL Y-wing starfighter is brilliant, I just love the stripped design of it, this is the Finemolds 1/72 scale model kit version of the thing. I had the kit stuffed in a cupboard for quite some time before I had the nerve (and the time) to give a crack at it. I bought some modelling magazines to refreshen the building skills I've not used much in a very long time. Although building the kit was fun, it was not very easy, I had to paint the thing twice because of one careless finishing layer of paint. I'm quite happy how it turned out eventually, though. The Y-wing is painted as one of the Gold Squadron, but none in particular.

 

I photographed this just some 50 meters from our backyard this morning. It was very, very cold, the temperature was below -20°c. I nearly froze my toes off. Seriously, I did.

 

This photo was influenced by the works of Michael Paul Smith and Cédric Delsaux. Also, I wanted to see if I can do something that looks real.

 

There's also an Avanaut Facebook page for those who like to like such things.
