Update: Painted AMT/ERTL Jabba

November 16, 2009

I wrote about the AMT/ERTL Jabba the Hutt Throne Room Action Scene a while back. I had come to the conclusion that it wouldn’t be worthwhile to paint up the entire model because the base that it comes with is made of such flimsy plastic. Plus, many of the figures are very low in detail. Instead, I decided to convert just the throne portion so that it could stand by itself. The sculpts aren’t great, but it was still kind of fun working in this scale again. I started out painting 25mm models.
These models are made of injection molded plastic and most of them consist of two half pieces that you put together, so there are sometimes gaps or extra plastic. I did a lot of scraping of mold lines. With Jabba in particular, I had to use some epoxy putty to fill in the gaps.

Here is a 3 3/4″ figure for scale.

    WOW, that’s pretty impressive work considering how small he is. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the throne room. 🙂
