Reconnaissance and Battle of Hoth - Non Arcade Related
« on: August 21, 2015, 02:16:07 pm »
Heyo.  Need opinions, recommendations, etc ad nauseum.  A guy about a year ago put some cool "subtle" graphics on the side of his ride (an element IIRC).  He did Hoth on one side and Tatooine on the other.  I'm wanting to do something similar to my FJ but Hoth on both sides.  The ride in the pic isn't mine but similar enough.  I'm borrowing for the mockup.  Whatchya think?

Am I missing anything integral?  I'm trying to tell the story without a lot of clutter, but want the viewer to quickly know what they're looking at.  Going for, "how'd he do that" rather than "why'd he do that".  Played around with adding in some ships departing Hoth but it busied it up too much.

Technically there could be an AT ST, but casual fans would associate that more with the battle of Endor.

I think it looks great, if you change anything I think its the Wompa side.

Minor tweaks to both, Wampa side is stronger now I think, got some feedback elsewhere that the shield generator wasn't recognizable.

Further tweaks, moving to have Battle of Hoth as the exterior art on both sides and then move just Luke and Wompa to inside.  Will find a place for the imperial scout droids at some point - probably on the suicide door panels.

Would you make the handle on the inside of the door look like the light saber hilt?  Or is that too forced? 

How about something between the windows or above the wheel wells?

Slammedniss is a well-known and respected member and vendor here on BYOAC.

You could PM him and ask if he can cut the vinyl for you, assuming that Le Chuck's willing to grant permission.
