I like the V wing a lot. Pity it did not get much time on screen. I love that you are putting out a kit for it.


Your 1/60 scratchbuild is simply fantastic. 8-) Inspiring really. All I did here was try to make this old kit a little better before re-releasing it.

Off to a great start!
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 was inspired some months ago when I saw the original Fantastic Plastic kit built by Slave1, and his thread is located here https://www.keeperoftheforce.com/viewto ... 979#p20979.

I decided to go with subtle two-tone winglets as Slave1 did. They're still glossy so there's a bit of glare that makes them look weird in certain areas. That should go away when I hit them with a dullcoat after it's completed.

I like that two tone look. It kind of makes it look like on side is angled instead of being just flat

Not going to weather it. Slave1's build has fantastic weathering if you haven't already followed that link I provided.

Sorry for the delay. Got ready for Thanksgiving and then the grandkids gave some sort of crazy illness. Still kicking me right now, but I should get back to building the model in a few days. Kit was supposed to be ready by now, so whenever you see my completed build, the kit will be available. I've got about 20 sitting on shelf that need a home, but I need to finish my build first just in case I see a problem I need to correct.
