Revell 1/48-ish X-Wing Fighter . . .
Posted by fotofrank on Saturday, March 26, 2022 1:37 PM

The latest to come off the bench: Revell's 1/48-ish X-Wing Fighter. Built completely OOB. The only mod I made was to clip off the tips of the guns to look more convincing. Although the X-Wing is painted to resemble the Mustangs of the 332 Fighter Group, it's still an X-Wing with BB-8 riding shotgun. I guess it could be a Red Squadron X-Wing. The overall color is AK Dark Aluminum with AK White Aluminum highlights. The red and yellow are Tamiya colors. I still need to do a couple of touch-ups and paint the stand, but here it is.  I picked this up at Modelpalooza back in October.

OK. In the stash: Way too much to build in one lifetime...

WOW!  Super job on this W-Wing!  Really liked how you incorporated that paint scheme into this Sci-fi build.  Any plans for more Star Wars vehicles with historical paint schemes?

Not immediately, Tom. I do have a Revell 1/72 Millenium Falcon (it's BIG) and the Bandai 1/144 Millenium Falcon in the stash. I'm waiting to receive an AMT 1/72 Razor Crest that's on pre-order. That one will be big too. After they get built, all I have to do is find space to display them.

Oh wow that's cool! Looks almost like the scheme belongs on the X-Wing! Yes

It's a lot of fun to see how you take existing fighter group markings and translate them to the spacecraft of Star Wars.

The scheme you chose seems like a natural for the X-Wing.  Also like the inspiration of clipping off the flashback suppressors.  My impression, it gives the craft a more aggressive profile.

On The Bench:

TBD

Thanks, PhoenixG. I have a Bandai 1/72 X-Wing up in the closet I'm trying to decide how to finish it. I'll certainly trim off the gun tips on this one too.

Nicely done. Revell did some very nice models of the final trilogies.
