Jawdropping painting work as usual Ian!
Nice SBS to read, very clear -a lot of people should be entitled to read it, whatever what they paint.
-now nobody is going to take your head about the amount of paint chipping on the spaceship :-)

Scott,
thanks for all the great work on the presentation of the article.

Jean- Bernard,
thanks, especially coming from yourself as I greatly admire your work.

I also thought I should add that this has been modelled on the older and more beaten up Slave 1 used in movie 5, once it has been handed on to the son. I used my Art of Star Wars book to render the ship from color shots of the actual model. I was intentionally liberal with my chips to emphasize the age and use, but also to align with the condition of the studio model.For my own taste I usually don't chip this much [except on old sci fi] ........... I felt this model needed this kind of treatment to bring it to life.
:-)
