1/24 scale Ralph McQuarrie A Wing scratchbuild

Re: 1/24 scale Ralph McQuarrie A Wing

As far as SW concepts go, this is my favorite design (probably because the resulting model looked so close, but not quite). Too bad this won't be a kit, but at least we can enjoy it coming together here.

Well that 1/24 pilot that goes in the usual 1/24 A-Wing kit swims in the cockpit. I get the feeling that the scale of it was off when you compare it to how that figure fits in the cockpit of the actual studio scale model. Your interpretation looks much more appropriate scale-wise.

I concur, at least here it looks more like a fighter with the smaller pilot and less like a bob sled (or a 60s Formula 1 racer).

Excellent work! Really amazing how you built this from the ground up, with minimal reference. Also loving the headhunter!

Stunning!:thumbsup

I never loved the shape of this in the
book looking at the picture of it. I didn't
really love it in primer either but with the
final paint on this it's a winner! Glad you
didn't kit it!

You brought the painting to life Rich! Who ever gets it will be very happy for Christmas!
 
Re: 1/24 scale Ralph McQuarrie A Wing

Great work REL !!

Man, I've been so out of the loop.

I've always like R MQ's version better than the actuall screen used design/miniature.

This is a must have!
 
Re: 1/24 scale Ralph McQuarrie A Wing

I hate you so much Rich!

Your builds are so figgin' clean and nice, it just pisses me off to no end. ;)
