X-Wing Revisited by Hikaru84 X-Wing Revisited by Hikaru84
This is a photographic composition of the X-Wing Model finished with a Hasbro Legacy Tie Fighter enhanced to a studio scale model standard to give more action to this photo session.
I chose to paint Luke's Red 5. It took me a week to paint all the weathering and different panel color details studying all the possible reference material of Luke's fighter ( Not much left I must say)
I am still working on this model as still needs more weathering on the fuselage to resemble the magnificent paint job the ILM modelers did so long ago.

Excellent work - modeling and photography...  I've just recently acquired several X Wing kits (smaller scale though, including the Finemolds Xwing) and have embarked on a mission to one day end up with a Studio Scale X Wing or Tie, or both.  But I have to put some work in first and see if I'm worthy, haha.

Love the paint/markings and weathering (so far on this) - thanks for sharing!

 Before painting my studio scale X-Wing I practiced on the 1/48th AMT X-Wing, 1/72 amt Falcon, these modelsare here in my gallery too.

Extremely nice work! What is the X-Wing manufacturer or did you scratch build it?

Hi there, thanks for your words.
The X-Wing from the pic is a resin copy of an original X-Wing scratch built by me. You may see some pictures of the construction process in the X-Wing folder in my gallery in the following link:

Your very welcome Rod!

Thank you for the link! You have some truly amazing talent! I plan on building some of the older kits from MPC and AMT and maybe try some from a company called "FineMolds". I hope you won't mind if I need some help from time to time with them.

Thanks for your words Darin.
I also build some MPC kits. I painted and MPC/AMT X-Wing as practice for painting the 1/24th X-wing Red 5 scheme, Luke's X-Wing. I modified it by changing the cockpit and taking the clear plastic out of the canopy to make it look more studio scale like. I also changed the guns for bronze tubes because the plastic guns are awful and pasted a bolt on the rear of the ship to attached to a stand.
Here are some pics of the AMT X-Wing and a AMT Falcon:

I am building another AMT Falcon heavily modified. There's something very wrong about the disc side walls of the AMT Falcon as they have the same height as the mandible walls.
The AMT Falcon is quite a good kit representation of the big (167 cm long) ANH Falcon model.
But to make it more accurate you need to cut the mandibles out of the disc to make them thinner in height in relation to the disc side walls. Yo can see in the pics of the one I build that it looks fat if built without modifications.
I'll soon post some pics of the modified AMT kit :)
The Falcon is my favorite ship so sorry if this reply went to long! XD
