Hi Guys

This is Finemolds 1/72 Y-wing completed June 2014.

The kit was built OOB for the most part with a little extra detail in the cockpit and scratch built steering vanes. I didn't want to finish it as one of the film versions so went with a fictitious scheme. The paint chipping was done with a combination of masking fluid and hairspray. I'm not 100% happy with the colour choices I made and I'd love the opportunity to try a different scheme on another but of course Finemolds have lost the licence now. Hopefully they'll keep the tooling safe and they'll be re-issued one day.

Anyway, enjoy the shots

Nothing wrong with those colours! Lovely build, lovely weathering and lovely photography with the inset detail. Just lovely all round I guess....

Thanks, you may be in luck now that Revell are reissuing some of the Finemolds kits

Please let someone reissue that! I have to have me one!

I'll never get it to look near as good as that but I can dream. Stunning work.

Really, I hadn't heard about this, I shall investigate and buy them all no doubt. I'm sure they won't end up looking half as nice as yours but thank you for the heads up.

I think all they've announced so far regarding Finemolds reissues are the 1/48 X-wing and TIE and the 1/72 Falcon, all of which will be welcome but I imagine that if they sell well they'll look at releasing others like this and maybe Slave 1. Bandai have announced a 1/72 Y-Wing too so it looks like we may be spoilt for choice soon.
