Back to Blackburn for powder coat and illumination. In the films, TIE models look like a grey colour, but it has to be to be obviously Dark Side, so we have a collective ponder and look at the reflection of the Encapsulites on the sculpture’s raw metal.
The X-wing was chrome powder coat and it worked really well with the lights. It has to be the same – and has to be consistent with the original Raleigh Record frame. High gloss black – like Darth Vader’s mask.
Looks cool against green.
The magazine shoot is booked and I drive to East London. Hopefully you will have read it by now.
