    Y-Wing - the movie version.

    I already posted a building thread for a Y-Wing, but this is the version which has been shown in the movies.

    upload_2015-1-21_18-26-34.jpeg

    It is made out of 3 papes - should not be too difficult.
    What I have seen is, that the cannon at the top is missing. As this is an essential part I will try to use the cannon of the other y-wing (hope the dimension will fit).

    :) another Y-wing..

    found it also...only it has a serious lack of greebles..

    and an Y-wing needs the greebles.. are you going to build it with extra's?
    that is why I started my own Y-wing.

    Imcold was also working on a Y-wing. what would be more detailed.

    yep greebles are missing - but it is a rather small model so greebles would kill me
    I know and love your models - they are very detailed and very big. Unfortunately I am not
    able and I even don´t have the patience to make an own version of each model I would like
    to call my own. So I have to use what is given, but in this case I will try to ad a cannon on the top.
    ------------------------
    enclosed first pics of my building...

    picture 4 shows the correct assambley of the front section - I did it twice, as at the first try I did it
    wrong.
    rest easy doing.

    next pics - made the connectors in a wrong way - too late for correction.

    Will post correct pics afterwards as I decided to create the same model a second time (double size) as a present for my nephew.

    and final pics of both fighters I made.
    1 in given size and one double sized.

    Summary - easy model - no greebles.
    Double size works fine - although I did not print in A3 but in 2 times A4.

    Very nice, and doesn't look to intimidating to build. Yours is perfectly straight, excellent! :)

    You are right, it is an easy model and doesn´t look bad. Only thing I really missed was the cannon on the top which I added from a model of the millenium falcon.
