Excellent work and the lighting is perfect as well, especially on R2
You're side by side comparison brings up an interesting topic for me
Do those pics show a bit of disparity between how far the wings open into the X on the studio model vs the Bandai model
Are the Bandai wings fully opened?
If not, that would explain why it is hard to reproduce that one famous side view shot of Red 5 in the trench run. I know the Fine Molds X-wings could not open as far as Bandai's can, but can Bandai's open as far as the studio model's?
I'll have to look into it a little more. Maybe some of my wiring running to the lasers and engines is preventing the wings from opening all the way.Re. the s-foils not opening as wide as the studio model, I have seen other builds of this kit where they might not open as far as the studio model, but wider than this build (which is stunning by the way).

In fact, this one’s not far at all from the studio model.
I just searched online. I believe they ended up being on YouTube, and I just downloaded the video and split it into separate .ogg files, which is what the audio board that I use plays.COlson, would you be able to let us know where you got the sound samples from? I love the idea of the random dialogue samples from the films.
