Last night I took some photos of my recently completed Bandai 1:144th scale U-Wing. Well, nearly completed - of course I realized I hadn't yet chipped the red markings on the wings yet, so I jumped the gun a tiny bit. Oh well . This was a fun build - the U-Wing kit is very nicely layered, goes together surprisingly easily, and has a lot of possibilities for painting in interesting ways. I'm seriously thinking of picking up another one. I decided to go with a hypothetical Red Squadron color scheme on this. I may yet add some squadron markings on the wings, but I haven't decided what I want there and I'm happy to let it sit for a while. One odd thing - the panel lines on the right wing are noticeably deeper than on the left wing. The fact that they look so much stronger on one in the photos isn't that I washed them unevenly; that seems to be a kit defect. I have no idea if it's on all U-wings, or a subset, or just mine. Anyway - a highly recommended kit, like every Bandai, really. Wings open: Rear engine detail: Top and bottom head-on: With Red Leader for size comparison: And in formation with a bunch of different Rebel fighters:
Hello! It has been an age since I finished anything so I wanted to restore my mojo with a quick and easy build. This is Revell's 1:100 U-Wing which I have re-painted and added a few small details to. The cockpit was detail painted as well as the crew figures. I added a door gunner and some figures to the base. It was completed in a weekend and was great fun to do. Hope you like it!
