I decided that my 1:6 Scale Yoda's Hut Environment from Sideshow could use some work..... I completely repainted it using both an airbrush and brush paints. I also used various laquer finishes to make certain areas look "wet".... I also used a clear resin to make "puddles" in certain areas.... I am pretty pleased with how it came out as the original production piece was pretty bland .... It was pretty much all one color.....

Well your work really paid off. The lacquer and resin really make it pop and give it that little bit of extra finish it needed.

I love it! That slimy mud really looks like it could spill onto your floor. Really great skills. Are you going to do the inside.....?
