    The level of details you put in to your Y-Wings are amazing!

    Just some fun pictures of the complete Y-wing.

    and it looks great..(and huge )

    now next...I have to do a little trimming to align the engines..on each y wing one engine pod isn't how it should be...so I have to cut a little greebles away so that It can level. (left engine on picture)

    When done I can spray paint them.
    Bring them back to my work and start with the end greeble-ing.

    maybe for the fellow minecrafters search on youtube for animalmace he has some great tricks on his sleeve, I learned a lot of him.

    Looks great. Top details - would like to have on my shelf.
    - As far as I know there is a cannon on the top of the cockpit. - I did not see it on your model - did you forget or am I wrong?

    Yes the temperature starts to get above the 0 degree celcius..
    so I have started with painting the ships..
    they look great.
    but still I need to spraypaint a lot...
    I did now 2 times....and still I find parts that are not painted...

    today i glued the first batch of greebles on the first y wing..(i took one to work and on is still at home)
    it looks nice but it is a big puzzle...just checking what i forgot and try to build it so it fits.

    i even glued the spare jerrycan to the ywing :) (second picture)

    I must apologize, I have been looking at this thread but keep forgetting to press the "Like" button. This is a beauty. One Hell of a model. You should be, and am, I'm sure, very proud of your work. We are enthralled!! :)
