Once a heroic Jedi Knight, Darth Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force, became a Sith Lord, and led the Empire’s eradication of the Jedi Order. He remained in service of the Emperor for decades, enforcing his Master’s will and seeking to crush the fledgling Rebel Alliance. But there was still good in him…
Darth Vader has three components, his body, arm and light sabre and his head with a cape.
The model goes together very easily.
Due the nature of the plastic used for the model the light sabre is a little bendy and doesn’t sit straight. I am wondering if I should replace it with some plastic (or even metal) rod.
I used superglue to stick the model together and to it’s base.
Using PVA white glue I landscaped his base with Citadel Sand.
The next stage will be a white undercoat. Despite the fact that Vader is mainly black I think the white will help the black cover better.
I will also need to sort out his light sabre.
