Is the paint scheme fictituous or is it an X-Wing from Rogue One?

Anyway, the subtle weathering is awesome. I like the slight tonal variations on the nose - they´re so subtle that it´s hard to see them. Perfect for the scale, same as the chipping. You, Sir, know how to paint! :)

It's the X-wing of General Antoc Merrick's, who flew as Blue Leader in Rogue One.

Great job!
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.

Fantastic work. I really like the vibrant colors...especially the yellow. I also like the different shades for the panels. And you did a fantastic mottled basecoat....very realistic.

I'll second Unreality- it's fantastic work!
The mark of any scale model is to make the kit look larger- and you've certainly made this look like a large movie prop!
Bravo- it's great!
