Like Gundam model kit makers, we Star Wars fan loves to customize. Especially when Hasbro does not offer what we want. So here is my custom 1/12 scale Tantive IV!

So one of the consoles is missing and not included but I didn’t want to wait 2 to 3 months for it to be shipped when I am working 7 days and the opportunity to make a diorama is now.
As you can see, the surface of the console, door, and well, everywhere is filled with pores. And it’s quite rough and visible. And sadly, the pore is going through the entire inside. So sanding does not help at all.
So I have 2 choices. One is to fill the surface with a putty or something and start sanding. This isn’t realistic since that can remove the detail and I honestly do not deserve all that work after paying $199 USD for a kit. It’s probably much cheaper and faster to build one or purchase a 3D printed item in such a case.
The logical answer was to use a heavy spray and to do several coating. Make the pores covered with the paint itself. This takes a lot of time but MONEY too since you need several cans of spray paints. But it also helps to blend the entire materials into the same color. As you can see, the console was yellow when it arrived.
I am not sure how many cans I spent. It was becoming a bad idea too but I had no other way to deal with this. A putty would be less costly but again, if you’re working 7 days and can do so much, a simple painting would save a lot of time. If does suffer your wallet instead though.
Here everything after I’ve finished assembling the kit parts. As you can see, you will get a plastic blast door with a floor.
The printed backboard is to swap with the blast door if you wish. The print isn’t great as it’s very pixilated and burly. But you can always print whatever you like from your home printer and I am quite sure your home printer can do a better job.
I do love the rubber black tube that the kit came with. This stuff does decompose over time but I can deal with that when the time comes.
My princess, how about we simply copy this data and start shooting it in all directions? Vader is pissing his pants. Or you can give that droid a copy and give the original to Vader so that he will feel accomplished and not search further.
Screw it, we are the Redshirts of Star Wars. How did we get shot by the Stormtroopers!?
So I am sure you want to get a 1/12 scale Tantive IV after my video/blog right? Not to worry, GTP Toys is offering a screen accurate 1/12 scale fully LED light-up diorama!! You heard me right. It lights up! And I mean everywhere!
The kit I got had an incaccurate consoles and those LED walls from GTP looks beautiful! So if you want to get your hands on one, here it is. And it’s only $199. Exactly the same price as the kit I bought. By the way, no this isn’t a paid promotion lol. It’s coming out this month (March) and for those who did early preorder, it was actually offered for only $150. Beautiful. I look forward in reviewing it soon.
By the way, GTP Toys has an official Star Wars license and will continue to release Star Wars 1/12 scale diorama for us Black Series fans.
