    This model looks absolutely STUNNING!!!
    That is definitely a museum and studio quality model.
    I am GREATLY IMPRESSED with your skills and the amount of time, effort, energy, and detail that you have put into this mode.
    KUDOS to you on a FINE job well done.

    Thank you all for all those kind words...
    Never thought that i could build this x wing.....and that it would look like the x wing :)

    I'm very proud to have a real Imcold xwing XL :)

    Now i hope that the snowspeeder will be as great as this one...and then i'm a happy dude...

    I'm also assembling this model and want to do it on a larger scale and more detailed.
    Great job with the X-Wing and congratulations, was one of the best jobs I've ever seen.

    Dnalor, it occurs to me that if you haven't, you might want to check out Firfeks TIE pep over at therpf.com. Huge scale already (the 'large' version is 1m tall), and as I recall, nice real detail. You'd need to paint it as there's no texture, but that's significantly easier than on the X/W.

    Fierreks tie hum...that are those pepakura models.
    i don't know...they have no internal construction..i think it will collaps without something

    I'm waiting on the loenf tie....he's nice :) and has a chassis.

    But thanks for finding. :)

    Behind every success, is a motivation. Look where it started, and look where you are now. Just imagine your paper world ahead of you!

    I follow your threads avidly. :thumb:
