    Hi. I have the opportunity to introduce the final version of THE X-wing Imcold is working on. Everybody knows that this is the best paper model of an x-wing on www an I can only confirm this well kown information :p
    It is not the easiest ( not for me at least) one , but believe me - you´ll get the most accurate shape and texture (maybe better than the origial :D ) you can imagine ...

    I'm happy to see this over here so I can comment on it (here). I think it's friggin' awesome! To be honest, having an 11 year old, I getting a little Star Wars "burnout" but this is really refreshing.:thumb:

    Guys , thank a lot.. We really appreciate your kind words , but you are a little bit exaggerated :) it is only a paper model . :) But if you mean it seriously - better for us :D Nevertheless there are a lot of more complicated and sophisticated models all around this forum ...

    Thanks again

    Hi guys, the model can be downloaded here: X-wing paper model
    I'm still working on the instructions, fuselage and laser cannon instructions will be uploaded later today or tomorrow, wings will come later. Comments&criticisms welcomed. Also, I still don't have any photo of completed final version of the model, I will add it to the page as soon as someone finishes the whole model and sends me a photo.

    Pepakura wasn't used on this model at all, so no pdo. I can make a US letter sized pdf relatively easily though, if it makes printing easier for you guys. I'm preparing a slightly improved version of the model anyway.

    You have a bright future ahead of you. Just make sure when you get out of school, you move to an area where people of your talent work. Sometimes people think that with the Internet, it doesn't matter. Society has not come that far, yet, it never may.

    When I try to download the PDF for the fuselage instructions I get a 404 Error message (all the other links work fine.) Does anyone else have this problem?

    Zahtros: I certainly hope so!
    MTK: If you do, could you please let me know if they print out fine? I don't have any printer of that format to test it on
    cblf49: It's fixed now, thanks for the heads-up!
