On more technical note,

While it is an X-wing, is it a T-65, or T-65A or T-66 or some other designation?
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

I'm sorry but it looks like crap ... I really don't like it

I hope the Falcon will look better

Looks better with the wings open- I saw as well that the "engine" splits like the RMcQ version

The new X-Wings design is pretty much following the original concept paintings of Ralph McQuarrie,...hopefully you'll get used to this (original) design

Just a few drawings by the original JJ.....(Joe Johnston)

I wonder how close they'll keep to the design of the rear of the ship?.....back to Ralph

You really can't keep a great design down

Looks like a Snap-On branded X-Wing from those drawings. Maybe they are just a sponsor.

Whatever it is, I like it!

Speaking of Z-95 kits...:D
Need to build 30 models per year until I'm 90 to clean out the stash. Time to get cracking!
