The 41st Elite Corps was a legion of elite clones in the Grand Army of the Republic, composed of many variants of troopers, including AT-RT drivers, clone scout troopers and BARC troopers. Their legion color was alternately gray or marked with green camouflage. The 41st Elite was a division out of the 9th Assault Corps, under command of Senior Jedi General Luminara Unduli and Senior clone commander Gree.
This AT-TE has seen extensive battles and suffer massive damages from serving with the 41st Elite Corps under Commander Gree and Jedi Master Yoda on Kashyyyk. The left side of this AT-TE is more severally damaged as the dense forest of Kashyyyk is not as forgiving to the men and materials of the Republic as the other planets.
Now, that the Introduction is done, allow me to present to you, My custom coloured and Damaged AT-TE.
A little Info about the kit, the kit is Revell Easy kit, snap fit kit. The scale says it is 1/98 but I am not too sure about that scale. The kit moulding is quite ok but so much seams and flash.
The damage are done by using my Drill bit and Rotacraft powertool. The paint chip was done by using a variation of the Hairspray method. There are actually about 5 layers of paint. I first primed the kit, spray a thick layer of Vallejo Metallic over the primer then a layer of Hairspray directly after that, left overnight, then applied Tamiya Hull-Red over that and another layer of hairspray. Left overnight after the hair spray, the grey was Revell water colour acrylics, so is the Dark green.
The paint chips are then make by dipping a hard brush into Tamiya thinner and rinsing out, so that only moisture level wetness of thinner is on the brush. Another variant of the dry brushing. Promodeller Clay based wash, MIG Grey wash and MIG pigments were used throughout the kit.
