    thought i'd give UHU02's x-wing a go. i see that nero_on_fire is doing his build also, this is gonna be fun. i went to my local office supply store and had them print it out on 60 lb 11 x 17 paper. 8 1/2 x 11 was too small for me to work with( yea, i know, chicken..:)). been working on it off and on for a little while and it's a amazing model to say the least. so's here are the pic's of what s going on xwing 006.jpg a old piece of a backscracher tube came in handy punching out the red dots. xwing 007.jpg all cut n ready to go xwing 008.jpg front section done.

    Wow, you're really fast and everything is already looking really cool!

    I'm trying to keep up, but time is limited and the girlfriend is already asking if I will get lost in this build (she may be right...) :laughrolling:

    ok, more pic's.. this is a blast to do. it's really a shame that so much on the detail is hidden inside the body after it's in place, but i know it's there and i can point it out to other people ( if they look at it)..and yes, i did slow down ...a little bit...on the build. xwing 026.jpg case in point on detail xwing 027.jpg nice small rollings xwing 028.jpg can just make out "danger" on the sides of the tubes xwing 029.jpg all in place
