Thank you so much for the link!! It's always nice to have a lot of good references to model with!
I'm still waiting on the purchase of the Fine Molds X-Wing, but in the meantime I just picked up at a local craft store a Revell "Snap-Tite" X-wing. The box doesn't give a scale size, but the stock number is 85-1856. I was surprised that when I opened up the box that it was all ready factory painted and quite nicely done at that! Even the canopy, Pilot, and R2 unit is very nicely done. Of course I will be adding some better paint to the engines and some other area's along with some weathering. I'll get some pictures soon and do a little build photo project on it. Any help and suggestions from you will always be welcome!
Yeah, some of the Revell Snap kits are really well don, the X-Wing is an example. I have one but have never had the time to build it. The detailing and shape are very precise in deed. The other Revell Sanp kit I recommend you is the Y-Wing, it is a very nice kit with a very good shape and tries to imitate every detail. I built and painted one, I'll post some pics for you to see it.
IŽll be waiting for your build up gallery. bests: Rod
