Chewie,
Those are great examples of Civilian Speeder paint jobs. Although they do look a little too toyish for my taste. The funny thing about what we consider a Starwarsy speeder does'nt really make cut it in a more realistic enviroment. It seems about 80% of the population of the Star Wars universe rides around in sporty 2 seaters. Where are the sudans, trucks, and SUVs. I guess if you've got a load to carry in the Star Wars Universe you better get yourself a Bantha or Ronto.

LOL

So, if I was plannig on a Speeder with a nice Flame Job, I should scratch it?

The problem is, if we stick with painting every vehicle in Grey scale, we won't be able to tell civillian craft from the millitary craft. I work a lot with color and fashion at my job, I know you wouldn't think Optical work involved much fashion, but I am responsable for picking new Frame lines to put in our stores. It's very important to have contrasting colors. Contrasting colors catch the eye. A lot of times I'll buy frames in very striking colors just to catch a customers eye and bring there focus on the product line I'm trying to market. Sure they'll usually by something in Black or Tortise but the striking color served it's purpose in catching the customers attention. If everthing is dull and muted in color all the detail will be lossed to the casual passer by. This was one of the reasons I wanted custom troopers in the project. They grab the attention of on lookers. Sure we as customizers and Dio makers can appreciate the finer details, but most of the people who are going to see this do not customize, infact this may be there first exsposure to the hobby. I remeber the first time I was introduced to the world of Star Wars customizing. It was my freshman year at UCF in Orlando I went to the FX show with a Frat brother whom collected vintage Joes and Anime. As I was walking by a booth, a bright spot of orange (Contrast) caught my eye on a vintage Stromtrooper and next to it a Colbolt Blue face stared back at me from a White Vitage Imperial Commanders body (Again Contrast). Both customs were very amature by our current standards, but they caught my eye and sparked renewed interest in a hobby I had not thought about since I was 12, switching around Joe parts. And can you guess what the first Poft2 Customs were that I made, Stormtroopers with decal sticker to add Contrast to my little Army squad of 5 Stormtroopers.

Look at the variety we've seen in the films

I have to disagree with you on the ship color Ryan. The metalic Green gives it a Hot rod look. There is a civilian population and there vehicles will very in style and color. I was considering making a Vehicle or swoop in Metalic Blue, Kind of a Star Wars street Racer.

Thanks for all the great feedback guys.

Unless I get a sudden burst of inspiration, I think I may start winding down my UGP projects. If there are any urgent needs that you guys feel my talents are equiped to handle please LMK.

Jedystyle,

The paint I used on Arm Candy's Dress, was "Aqua Cool Pearl" from Delta Ceramcoat. These are available at Walmart.

Thanks again,
Fritzkrieg

Thanks for all the great feedback guys.

Roron, to aswer your questions:

On the X-Files Alien I used The hands from the Build A Queen Alien Pack in Parts that shipped with the Aliens vs Predator Snap Kits from Hot toys. It's pretty rare fodder but I think I have some extras if you want them. The life support system is kit-bashed from Chewbacca's Oxygen mask from the Mynock Hunt 3 pack and a Fire exstinguisher from a 21st century Toys vehicle.

On Phef, I found the Mercat in the same section in Target you were looking. He was the only one left. I imagine it's a pretty popular figurine given the popularity of the "Mercat Manor" documentary.

Hope that helps.

Here is another Original Alien Design I created for the UGP. When I saw the Schleich mercat I could not resist making a Star Wars custom out of it. LMK what you think. I know all the Jedi have already been chosen for the project. I just could no resist giving him a Jedi Backstory. He'd blend in pretty well as another traveler.

Phef a Mearkatian, was a promissing young knight in the Jedi Order when Order 66 devistated their ranks. Finding himself alone now in the Galaxy Phef travels from system to system in search of surving members of his Jedi bretheran. Diguised as a traveler this unsuspecting being has remained undetected for years. Small size and puppylike cutness betray the dexterous warrior underneath this visage.
