    Here is my x-wing which is an enlarged version of Imcolds design I enlarged it to 300% and copied an pasted it to fit my printer which spread it out over 86 pages. The fuselage is about 33 inches long so that's why the pics are done in sections. I've been on it for a little over a month and so far the fuselage is finished except for some details like the canopy and the droid section, the laser cannons are finished except I want to make the blue strips for the blue spiral detail also the engines are done but now I'm wishing I would have added some lighting to simulate the engines in operation. I started working on the wing outer sections 2 of which are shown here. All in all it's a great model and goes together well which is a real tribute to the designer, I wanted to post some pics earlier in the build but I had to replace my camera so a late start at posting but I hope to post more as I go along. Take care all and may the force be with you.
