    I wonder if he will create the skin panels for the cutaway so you could make the panels removable. It would be great for a diorama. You could remove some of the panels to make it look like the mechanics are working on the ship. It looks great so far.

    From whatever I've seen from Uhu I'm sure that is the plan. :cool:

    More texture work,lots of great details to keep any Star Wars fan happy.I don't know if it will have the exterior panels as well, the Proteus did so it's quite likely.

    And now on to the wings,certainly appears to have a hinge mechanism for open and closed configurations

    This looks like it will be one of the most complex models that UHU02 has built.

    You'd think that then UHU02 will come along with an even more complex and incredible model,half if not more of the excitement with UHU02's projects is finding out what's next.

    Two sets of wing skins, Red 3,Biggs and Red 5 Skywalker from what I can make out UHU02 hasn't decided whether to do R3,the ship he has the prop photos of or R5 Skywalker's ship who some people think is the hero (it's so Red 2 Wedge that's the hero) or do both,I pause while you recover your composure and mop up the drink you've just spilt cheering,Google translates not the easiest way of following the thread but I think that's the thoughts so far.

    They're one and the same model,Fine Moulds are responsible for the sculpting Kotobukiya the production and distribution I didn't realise that when I posted it.A beautiful model but way out of my price range,as I say though it makes me all the more excited to see UHU02's finished model

    To continue the excitement waiting for UHU02's X-Wing the engines are the next bits being worked on,as with the S.H.A.D.O. Interceptor I've been eager to see how the engines will be tackled.

    Thank you, Gixergs, for giving us these incredible updates. I agree with you, the model will become another piece of art which is going to set new standards. It seems Uhu is preparing to reveal the inner structure of at least one engine.

    Your welcome.got to share the excitement with someone!.The early 3D shows basically one half of the fighter exposed so one engine will be open to view whether the engine itself will be further cut away I'm not sure but I'm eager to find out,that would be a pretty fantastic model in itself!.
