All photographs taken by me at "The Return of the Garrison" Star Wars weekend, National Space Centre June 2014. Photographs mostly feature members of the UK Garrison, the UK section of the 501st Legion.
I was wandering around one of the lower floors of the Hyatt and found a hatch with a ladder going down. Being a nosy-butt, I decided to go exploring.
After descending, I wandered around for about 15 minutes in this huge sub-basement. I found a hangar with 1:1 models of various space ships from Star Wars. Then I went through a big door and found myself in a room with a bunch of Mandalorians. I took a few pictures, until they started firing at me! I ran around for twenty minutes, and there must have been at least 100 people firing at me, but I never got hit! What lousy shots!
Eventually, I found the ladder going up and got away.
My recently finished Y-wing, painted using an airbrush. This is the first time that I have used an airbrush on a model, and am pleased with the results. I cannot believe that I waited so long to use one. I weathered the ship with my standard dry brushing techniques. I have not yet painted the stand, though I will probably do it in the same style as that on my X-wing.
