This is an improved version of a famous Star Wars vehicle in episode IV. Many Star Wars fan don’t realize that this vehicle is responsible of transporting not only R2-D2 and C-3PO. It also transported us the audience to a world far far away. Thanks to the Escape Pod, WE all arrived to Tatooine, and got a glimpse of a sandy hot and harsh planet orbiting 2 suns. So basically, the Escape Pod is our vehicle to coolest adventure and symbol of pop culture ever. If only a plastic model making company could see the role of this vehicle and release a nice 1:1 model kit of the Escape Pod.
This is nothing but an off-the-shelf toy from Hasbro released back in 2002. I took the toy apart and painted it completely, I added some styrene plates to the toy and 5 LDS. 4 LDS were used for the trusters and one is loose inside to provide some light on te pod’s window. All LEDs are fed by 2 AAA batteries. I used Acryl Light Ghost Gray to paint and weathered it with Acryl Rust diluted with water. I hope you like it!
