Star Wars Aayla Secura's Jedi Starfighter - Weathered Effect

I know everybody already has this toy so nothing new about it, but I wanted to do something different with this ; weathering & battle effect.

Aayla Secura's Jedi Starfighter is the 30th Anniversary toy line from Hasbro.
This particular line doesn't require stickers & doesn't have weathering like Obi Wan's has.
The painting on this is somewhat bad. Theres even paint smudges & blotches of paint.
So I took out my tamiya enamel paint & thinner. The ratio is 1:4.
I also use a flat brush for the blaster & oil effect, while a fine brush for the seam line.
I appologise for not posting the how-you-do-it, but there's a lot of how-to's in the net & on youtube.

Before & after.

The fuselage.

There are parts of the washing that I felt that I overdid it a little or not enough.
If anything I'm happy with the effect.


  1. wow..nice job...
    bila nak ajar aku ni..
    tolong bancuh liquid tu kat aku..:)

  2. Thnks. InsyaAllah.
    Nak kene cari 'subject' baru.

  3. Nice custom job bro! I like collectors who take their collection a level up! Those who dare to mess around aka customising their prized toys deserves to be saluted!

  4. Thnks. Depends also on what I'm customizing. Since the paint on this starfighter is terrible, I took it upon myself to 'enhance' it a little.
