    Found this model on paper-replika.com where many other great models can be found.

    This model is build of 2 pages for parts and 3 pages as instruction.

    The first parts are cut and assembled rather fast, but.... there are two parts for the nose of the fighter which I do not know where to place. Last picture first row - parts 2 and 4. - We will see whether I will have an idea later on.

    ---Not all, but the most essential.

    ---Yes I am waiting for the viper - but there are other ships worth building - e.g. http://www.zealot.com/threads/buck-rogers-thunderfighter-mods.169684/page-21 or http://zealot.com/threads/battlestar-galactica-space-cruiser-viper-concept-by-andrew-probert.177074/


    --- It will be the perfect one - based on the existing pictures and information.

    So back to the A-Wing fighter:
    next parts - made a small mistake - picture 2: here you should glue the separator before the frame - might be easier than the other way.

    The rest of the fighter did not cause problem, although some parts are small.

    Pic 1 parts of the engine - small parts but ok.
    Pic 3 , 4 and 5 really small parts of the guns - - I should have printed in A3 or bigger. :confused:

    Uhhhh, real small - did not manage to glue them perfect - but in the big view it is ok.
    Maybe I will make the guns again by using thinner paper.

    In sum a good model, as can be seen in comparison with the a-Wing published by deAgostini.
