Revell 1/29 Scale X-Wing "Easy Kit"
« on: May 25, 2017, 03:15:11 pm »
Well here she is in all her glory.

I got my big 1/29 scale x-wing finished up and ready to be displayed. I had a ball with this build as although it is an "easy kit" which essentially means it's a kids toy to be bult in about an hour the size of the model (27" long by 14" wide) means it is a smidgen off the studio scale models used in the film.

But as always I am waffling on when a picture beats a thousand words.










I can thoroughly recommend these kits jst for their size and I will be looking at getting some more in the near future.

As always many thanks to you all for following this build and I hope you enjoyed the journey as much as I did.

And as has been my custom a wee video to close off this build.

Iain!

Absolutely beautiful!!

You did an excellent job on the build, weathering and use distressing! I would almost swear it was one of the original filming models!

But the lights! OMG! The lights are incredible! The engine bays are up to your usual standard of excellence, but what floored me was the cockpit lights and the R2 unit lights! BEAWESOME! The different colors in the FO are superb and very well done!

You make me want to get a kit myself and see if I can even come close to your build!

Outstanding job, Sir! Outstanding job!
