1/72 Bandai Poe's T-70 X-Wing

Recommended Posts

Hi all and here's my first finish for 2022, Bandai's 1/72 Poe's T-70 X-Wing from Ep. 7 The Force Awakens.

I'm going to try and build more Star Wars stuff this year.




Not much of a build thread as it went together so quickly! The fit of the parts is a joy and I only used glue in a couple of places. You could build and decal this straight from the box and have a lovely kit on your shelf. But I decided to repaint the orange markings with a custom Tamiya mix of red, orange & yellow. The hull was painted Tamiya XF-69 Nato Black




My first time weathering with a liquid mask and I learned a lot - will do better next time. Rest of the weathering was a Flory Models wash and some oil streaking. Most of the kit decals were used. 














Thanks for looking and happy modelling.

All the best,

very nice build and paint, I like your subtile weathering and the painted orange is really good.


if your after some "different" Star Wars subjects give Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars Legion a look, they produce some interesting kits
