Hello friends, As you probably know (thanks to our Revell-Fan) Shunichi Makino is upgrading his amazing A-wing model right now: http://www.zealot.com/threads/revised-a-wing-by-shunichi-makino.180331/page-2#post-1025626 And because I just can not wait any longer, I started to experiment with his old version. This way I can build parts he did not modified now and later use modified parts from new version (cerected engines and cockpit). Hopefuly it will looks something like this when I am done So what will I do? What is the plan? First thing is to scale down the model. Because A-wing is one of many Star Wars vehicle with uncertain and changing dimensions we have few possible versions. Official length of "real" craft today is 9,6m. It is cca 20cm in 1:48 scale and it is the way Shunichi Makino design it). But for some fans (me included) this is way to big. Because if you look closely on original model photo with pilot figurine you will see it is no way that long. So I scale Snunichi Makinos model down to 60 percent of its original size. My model will be cca 12cm long in 1:48 scale: Top is original model, bottom is scale down model: Original: Scale down to 60 percent: This are also my test buils to bring little more curvature to the model, because some parts looks too flat to me and can be easily curved. I will also do little proportion changes here and there and finaly I will try to make weathered look by myself. Shunichi Makino did all the heavy lifting to wonderfully design this model. Thank you for good work master.
