Re: Pcoz's Hasbro Hero Star Wars X-Wing Conversion

Well guys, this is probably just about it for this thread...I do plan on posting the outdoor pics and a video later.

Here are some of the final photos. I have to say, the size of this X-Wing makes photography extremely difficult !

Although I did scour over photos and movie stills for reference, at the end of the day, I did take some artistic liberties. I think it was mainly due to the large scale of this X-wing. I felt that if you examine it closely, it may look "over weathered" compared to the original scale model but since this is so much larger, I went for a somewhat more realistic weathering approach. When you see this from a normal viewing distance, I think it works well.

Anyway, here we go....

As always, thanks a lot for checking out my work here ! I can't even believe it's over....kind of feels like I'm sending a kid off to college or something. lol.

Anyway, I appreciate all the help, advice, and comments over the course of this project from all of you the members here at the RPF ! ;):thumbsup This is truly a fantastic site with a ton of talented and helpful people.

Since this was really my first crack at scratch building and modding, I definitely had a TON to learn. If you look back to the beginning, I don't think much of my original ideas survived as I learned a trick or new material to work with. So now I can take what I learned here and apply it to the next project !


Thanks !

G'day Pcoz ,
Congratulations on your beautiful build , and thanks for sharing ....Just finished going through your earlier ' BobaFett ' figurine thread ( another amazing project ! ) , and ended up on your scratch - mech thread . Was wondering , did you ever end up taking ' final / finished ' photos of that and if so where did you post them ? . You really do have enviable skills and talent mate .
Cheers Ged

Thanks a bunch guys, I really do appreciate the kind words, especially because I'm such a huge fan of a lot your work ! You guys have provided me a ton of inspiration and actually helped me complete this project ! (I'm a bit of a procrastinator :facepalm) In all honesty, it'd still be on the bench, lol

As soon as I get things together, I'll post those outdoor shots along with a video. The video is a must to see how the cockpit lighting turned out.

Also, yeah gedmac66, I did start to photograph my mech warrior, but I was having a hard time getting some good pic's.....I'll post those soon when I go to another location or two. Until then, here a a couple:

That mech warrior is awesome! How tall is it?

Thanks Joe, that was my first ever scrap built. It's about 18-20" tall and made up of pvc fittings, foam board, flashlight parts, plastic shims, cordless mouse, pc speakers, balsa wood and a ton of scraps laying around. My only gripe is it turned out a little too monochromatic for me. I may give it a fresh paint job one day.
