When I opened the box of my Imperial Shuttle, I was quite shocked at how dirty it was. Isn't the shuttle rather clean and white? I am actually quite disapointed in this piece, as it is NOT movie accurate. The paintwork needs MAJOR toning down.
I plan on removing some of the grey paint off my shuttle later this month. But before I do this, I want to make sure that I am doing the right thing. As you guys know, there are 3 shutles seen in ROTJ: Tyderium (the one stolen by the rebels), ST-321 (the one Darth Vader uses), and the Emperor's (supposedly heavily modified- god knows how). I was thinking that hasbro may have made the Tyderium shuttle, which may or may not be dirtier than the other ones. If it is indeed Tyderium that we have, and if the latte IS that dirty, I will put it in a Rebel hangar diorama, and that'll be that. But otherwise I will proceed to cleaning it up.
Can anybody post links to pictures of the 3 shuttles? Any advice on this is appreciated.
