    OK, finally, after close to 3 months of work and thanks to my brother that give it to me for my birthday here is my version of UHU02 X-Wing Interceptor.
    It does have a lot of details and mistakes I made. In my defense I can said it's me very first paper model ever...
    I did some mistakes mainly on the cabin cover and in the R2D2 receptacle. Things I will fix somehow (I honestly have no clue how)
    Thanks to UHU02 for trust in us and share his models. I hope he doesn't feel offended by my crappy work here :(

    This is the finished work, sadly I didn't take many pictures of the assembly

    I have to say that you are a VERY BRAVE man to tackle one of UHU02's models for your first project.
    With that being said, you did a GREAT JOB!!!
    As for making mistakes, it just shows that you are human. I remember the very first kit that I made was Martin Sangers Thunder Fighter. It looked like RUBBISH!!!:banghead: However, I learned from those mistakes that I made and rebuilt it (a few times), and ended up with a really good looking model in the end. The more models you build the better you will become. Just take your time and enjoy the hobby as a whole.
    GOOD LUCK with your next project! I am looking forward to seeing more of your work!!!

    Wow, can´t beleve that you started with that difficult model. Can´t see your mistakes. Perfect build. Congratulations.
    I also thought about building UHU´s X-Wing. Looks as difficult as UHU´s Viper.
    Maybe I will start when the building thread is complete - I like building threads - they are really helpful.
