The landing gear on the B-wing is some leftover legs from the oversized Bandai "1/72" A wing, I just cut out a few panels and scratched out some room for the landing bay.
That's very much what I was planning on doing with my B-Wing when I get around to it.

as far as the GS-figures are concerned, my impression didn't fool me... thanks
yes indeed the good old groud crews :D
i am looking forward to new pictures (also the 1/144 line-up) ;)
you could do me a big favor...
can you measure the length and width of the 1/144 a-wing?
i got another RB26 A-Wing here, maybe they'll match

Thanks a lot
Meister, the little A wing measures out to 67mm long by 42mm wide or 2 and 5/8" long by 1 and 5/8" wide

Here are the blue prints for the full size A-Wing. Notice how small it is

https://us.propstoreauction.com/view-au ... lot/16585/

If I am reading the grid right each mark is 2'0" and there are 11 that stop at some point near where the engine ring is

So based on that grid, front to back of the engine before the ring (not the end of the fins) is 22 feet or 6.7 meters.

A guesstimate to the end of the fins would be another 4 feet making a total of 26 feet or about 7.9 meters

At 1/72 that should come out to around 3.67 inches or 9.3 cm long to the end of the engine part or around 4.33" to the end of the fins

Bandai's 1/72 and 1/144 kits are based on a 9.6 meter size so they are clearly oversized based on these blueprints assuming they are aaccurate.
Also the pilot figure is a dead giveaway. it can't be denied it is oversized as it is way larger than a 1/72 pilot.

In 1/72 that comes out to around 5.2 inches

So the 1/144 kit at around 2.625 inches is only 1" smaller from 1/72 where the "1/72" kit is 1.53" larger

Which means the 1/144 kit is technically closer to a true 1/72 compared to the actual 1/72 kit

Of course, it all comes down to preference. Some people prefer the larger looking A-Wing, some do not

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.

great breakdown Blake - and ya everything I have ever read/seen put the A wing at about the 7 meter mark so it is what it is. the "1/72" kit is a great stand alone, and actually looks really good sitting next to the 1/48 bandai snowspeedy and my hasbro hero 1/48ish Falcon. you just can't pair the 1/144 with other 1/144 kits, nor can you pair the 1/72 with other 1/72 kits - it's a shame, but hey that's life!

many thanks for measuring the kit
I immediately measured the RB26kit...
does not fit together of course :( 93mm lengh/ 54mm wide (without guns)
but this now confirms the statement of blakeh 1 and also yours - alone yes, with other 1:72s no - well known problem, with different measures which can be found

so what, everything is only fictitious and lies in the end in the eye of the beholder ;)

furthermore still happy modeling :D
