There are a couple youtube build logs going - the furthest along I saw was up to Issue 30 or so... It looks good but a good deal of busy work in there as well... stuff that you can't see in the finished model. But it does look nice.
If any of you have got far enough into the X wing to have finished the main power supply/circuit board would you be able to do me a favour? I’m adding an LCD display into the cockpit (from brick stuff.com) and it requires a 5v power supply. I can see that the x wing runs on 4 AAs, so 6v. Can anyone confirm what the actual output voltage to the cockpit LEDs is? I assume there is a voltage converter built in to the main circuit board that reduces the 6v down to 3v, as the LEDs are tested using two AAs (I.e. 3v) throughout the build.
