    Just need to flat coat it (when I can find some) then put somewhere where I can't keep fiddling with it.
    Incredibly good kit I just wish they would do a 1/48 or 1/32 scale one

    Yep, looks good! :)

    Do you know what I would wish? Getting a proper paper model of the OT Y-Wing which can be scaled up or down according to your needs. So far I have not seen a precise model of it yet. :)

    ...

    @uhu02 , please??? ;)

    This one is a work in progress..as it is stripped down to nothing for card modeling...but a quick search on Google will get you many++ to choose from that are a lot better quality...

    PS... I just found a .pdo of this on Papermaus but it is listed under an X-wing....

    looks great... now build a TIE to be blasting it to bit's so the two posed just as the blast leaves the TIE's cannons.

    Two more Bandai kits on the go, these are ideal for me at the moment as the kits go together so straight forwardly that I need only concentrate on the finishing of them so when duty calls I can easily put them to one side and have no problem picking them up again.

    Looking forward to your weathering of this kits.

    Are X-wing and Tie in same scale? If so, can I ask you to put them side by side and make few photos for me, please? And take some measurement if possible (width, height, length, fuselage diameter):)?

    I am building paper X-wing and want to build paper Tie-fighter next but I discovered that there are no one "right" dimensions for Tie-Figter (on Star Wars wiki they almost doubled them recently). So I would like to see how Bandai Tie-figter looks next to their X-wing.:).

    The X,Y and TIE are all supposed to be 1/72. I say supposed because the pilots are all over the place but this might be due more to ILM than Bandai as reading up on the studio models it turns out that ILM had a habit of sticking any old figure in them.
