Got the base painted over the holiday weekend!  

Took a while to sand it down, add glazing putty to fill in all the divots and other non-rock-like depressions, then sand again.

After prepping, I coated the whole thing with some stone textured paint I found in my paint cabinet.  Looks pretty good already, but doesnt match the desert environment of Jakku.

So after that dried, I started airbrushing multiple shades of earth-tones in a mostly random fashion.  I concentrated the darker shades in the lower valleys, and the lighter colors on the peaks and raised areas.  Then I went back over with a really light color using the dry-brush technique to bring out the texture.

A close up shot of the vertical part.  I think it turned out pretty sweet!

Next up is painting the keyboard and mouse to match the case.  More to come!

Almost done with the Corsair peripherals..

Here is the keyboard and mouse that Corsair sent over.. the Strafe RGB and M65 Pro mouse.

After some minor disassembly and masking, I scuffed up the surfaces to be painted, then the usual prime coat/red base/yellow stripes.

After a few days of curing, I went over everything with steel wool to dullify the paint and take the sheen off. Then it was just a matter of airbrushing a light sand color over it all to mute the colors even more, and adding some dirt and grime here and there.

I will probably go back over some areas with a rust color for an additional layer of weathering.

Getting the Speeder set up on my desk, transferring all my data and games. This is probably the first time I haven't had to scramble before a LAN just to get it running in time, hoping nothing goes wrong when I push that button lol.  ..then having to spend the first day there loading all my games and stuff.  Woot for being ahead of schedule for once!! :D

My daughter took it upon herself to add a couple riders on the Speeder, as it did look kinda empty without someone, or some thing, piloting it lol..

I keep adding more detail here and there.. The front grill felt like it needed something, so I dirtied up a Geforce Garage badge :P
