Star Wars Custom Of The Week: Pirate LAAT - 'The Flying Rancor'

Bespin refugee - November 13, 2022

"I got this husk super cheap as I just needed the doors. Initially I was just going to paint it up as a crashed gunship diorama piece, but then I got a mini airbrush and decided to test it out. I used a mushroom tray for the floor, cargo doors and wing panels. The door activation button was snapped off, so I replaced it with a flat topped gun that works perfectly. I scratch built the canopy from a piece of ABS sheet that I heated with a blowtorch to bend and fit, added catches, then dressed with crap from my bits box and some more mushroom tray. I used oil drums from Marauder gunrunners to replace the large guns. The chin and tail guns were 3d printed.

I repainted a TFA Speeder as an accompanying vehicle. I took it apart and added hooks that attach it to the side door of the gunship. The decal are from bad mother tattoos on eBay. The rest was sprayed with various aerosols. I used Tamiya clear red for the screen.

There's a 3 man crew of pirates/ bounty hunters to go with it - a Trandoshan, an IG droid and a Cephalapoidian.

I'm really happy with my first project with the mini airbrush. I totally recommend them.
