Ugly Xie-Wingceptor

Post by dark kyp » November 28th, 2021, 3:24 pm

Here is a new project I started.

It will be a mix between a X-Wing and a Tie interceptor! Both are AMTs kits.
I know that there is a scale difference between the two of them.
I hope I will cut enougth in the Tie in order that it is not seenable!

I am going to 3D print the inside of the cockpit in order to remove the ugly one from the kit.

Here are the first pictures:

I know the "Scale" isn't right, but most people won't notice unless you're a complete scale Star Wars geek... there are none of those on here, are there...?

The plan for the next steps is to make take out the inside of the 3D printed cockpit to add it in the AMT hull!

I will also make something with the Tie main ball!

Wow! You're going to town with this! I expected just a model mash up, but those printed parts are cool!

The masking and unmasking took an eternity! I let the maskol for too long, so it has been hard to find where it was :lol:
