Bandai 1/72 X-Wing 'Blue Two'

Recommended Posts

Hullo all. Thought I'd finally post up some pics of my X-Wing build. I received this Christmas before last, but only in the past few months did I really crack it open with intent to complete it

 

So here she be in progress :)

Still need to finalise a surround for the base, probably out of balsa wood. Pilot is painted up (in blue), just needs a wash and a bit of highlighting :)

Wow, now that is a brilliant build and dio, 

 

it's so good to see folks putting x-wings in various 'locations'..

 

would love to know how you did the various extras for the Dio,  some stunning scratch building i'm guessing..

And yup, a combo of styrene sheet and rod (1mm and 1.6mm if I recall correctly :)). Decided to take a stab at making them when I discovered PE ladders for an X-Wing were pretty pricey.

Great work, great idea for the Maintenance theme. I suspect the Rebels needed to do a lot of maintenance as they were in constant use. The empire could relieve front line units as needed for R&R/maintenance.

I originally wanted to open up panels, but didn't have enough confidence in my ability to do it well, so I settled on building up a surrounding to tell the story of it instead :)
