Hello everyone... In conjunction with my 1/48 X-wing. I will be building these two kits.spacer.png

Thes will be X-wing Blue Four for the Sci-Fi portion of the build. The Y-wing will be Green 12 built as a long range reconnaissance fighter with extras added for the WHIF portion of the Group build. I will add sprue photo’s later today.

Im gonna be a crazy ape running through the jungle. I seriously doubt all 4 builds will get done, but one can hope. these little ones will take just a few days each. The other two will take a month or more each. Maybe a theme song for the build ?

Onto the sprue shots, X-wing first. This is literally like 3”x4”

Y-wing next and this is like 2”x5”spacer.png

Im planning on painting the markings for the most part. Questions, comments, and or thoughts.

Hello everybody... My goal as stated above is to do a Blue squadron X-wing from Rogue one. I watched the movie yesterday as a bit of research and realized there are two X-wings seen during the Jedha sequences. These belong to Saw Gerrara’s Cavern angels and have a very distinctive scheme. spacer.png

🧐 So I may change or if my budget allows may just add to this build.

Hello everybody... So i opted to start on this today while my X-wing build was setting/drying. After twenty minutes or so i was at this point.

Quite small as you can see, however the detail is really good. Once this is built up i will give it a coat of black paint. Then i can spray the main colors and pick out the detail with brushes. I should be able to knock out the engines without to much hassle. Questions, comments, or thoughts ?

Seems a good way to tackle it. I’m looking for ideas so interested to see how you go with this one. I’d like a Y-Wing

This one will be slightly modified as I'm using this as my WHIF build. I was planning on using this as a long range scout that would have been used to monitor Imperial convoys and bases. It was going to get a different paint scheme and some extra antennas as well. The Y-wing is my 2nd favorite type, but this one seems to small for me to go with standard scheme, Id like a larger one for that.

Hello all...So i finished up the Y-wing in about 20 minutes. This is what it looks like mocked up as i wont lock the engine pods on until after the base colors are done.

Once I finished that i started on the X-wing. After an hour i was finished with everything except the cannons.

The wings do work (open and close). But this going to be posed on the stand in attack position when its done so i photographed it that way.

The cannons are single piece units but will be kept off for now until i start painting. Questions, comments, and or good stories ?

Hello everyone... Well i did the black basing on both the X & Y-wing today.  Once dry i went back over the Y-wing with a dusting of EDSG to get the desired effect and color.

I chose to leave the starboard engine pod in traditional colors. I figure with my back story it was damaged and replaced with another pod. Here is the X-wing its in a more traditional scheme.

These look like they are coming on really well. The detail on these tiny kits is most impressive. I like the colouring on the Y-Wing

As you can see i went for a different scheme from the more familiar Gold Squadron Y-wings. This one is Green 12 and so far I'm liking it quite a bit.

I agree!  Much better than your larger X-Wing kit.  I am loving these builds Dennis.  Too fun!

      Hello everyone... So i did some work on the X-wing today. Since it is from Blue squadron and and my favorite # is 4 its is now Blue-4. I opted just like the Y-wing to go with different markings to differentiate from Red Squadron. 3f7la0K.jpg

I used hash marks on the nose for this one, not the only place I've done that.

I added hash marks to each of the wing cannon as well. Which will give the markings in multiple locations.

Here we have the pair in formation together. Questions, comments, or thoughts ?

Will add the main cannons to the X-wing and the turret to the Y-wing tomorrow and see if they need anything else ? Questions, comments, and or thoughts ?
