I am new to this so forgive me if this question has been answered already but does anyone know if the Deagostini X-Wing parts fit sizewise with the Hasbro Hero X-Wing. They both are supposedly 1/18th scale. And buying strategically one could get the parts most needed for the Hasbro conversion rather cheaply (Wings, engines, canons, cockpit). Or is this just silly of me?
I believe there was an earlier post that spoke of the blueprints for the Deag X-wing as near identical in size. I was thinking about doing the same thing. Once the run is complete, I would assume that individual issues could be purchased, but if it is anything like the MF, you may need more than half the issues in order to get the whole set of wings, since they tend to split up the build in several non-linear stages.
Thanks! I was thinking you’d only need two wings and double them. I know the German mag included one wing which could be completed in the First few issues already.
Personally, I think you would be money ahead to buy the wing kit from Falcon 3D and an armature from Mike Reader if you’re choosing to modify a Hasbro.
Their work is amazing but 4 complete wings from Falcon are $ 1.000,- not counting shipping and taxes for Europe (I am in the Netherlands and unfortunately DeAgostini does not ship here), whereas I’m seeing the first 20 issues of the X-Wing (which I think included two wings, lighting for the engine and guns, a light-up R2 Unit and a canope and partial cockpit) for around € 150 - 200. So the math is € 400 for a set with lighting versus $ 1.000 plus.
I’ll try to get my hands on those forst 20 issues and let you know How they would work on the Hasbro.
Just checked Falcon 3D’s website and the complete set of 4 wings/parts for the 1/18 x-wing is $375 USD. I don’t know where you get $1K.
I thought that price included the cannons and engines. I may have read it wrong when it said ‘complete’ wing set...The $375 doesn’t include the engines or laser cannons etc (+$ 395 x 4) ..., maybe not $1k but getting up there .
Don’t get me wrong , Gus’ work is brilliant and top notch (got his MF exhaust & grill’s set for the Deago) , and when I win lotto I’ll be purchasing more of his goodies !
You can check here, in the build diaries it looks like they are on Pack 5 and it contains issues/stages 17 - 20. It is slow going so far.Can you tell me what month are they on? I have seen nothing new for forever. I checked the site but I could only see the first four.
Darkview received his first parts in post #56 over two years ago. Shouldn't we be seeing a bunch of finished X wings by now?????
