    Hi all,
    I'm wondering if people here can indulge me a little with something.

    I re-read the thread about the history of the Capatin Cardboard X-Wing and found it a fascinating read and it got me interested in the other SS X-Wings. Now I'm looking for some hi-res photographs of any SS X-Wing kits that have been produced over the years. These include:

    Estes Maxi-Brute X-Wing
    Captain Cardboard V1
    Salzo (aka CC V2)
    Salzo V3 and 3.1
    Frank Cerney's Pyro
    Poseiden Young
    Art2 Models (X-Wing Revisited)

    Hopefully, I haven't missed any but I would not be surprised if I have.

    I would like to get multiple photos of the different parts if possible but I also suspect people might think I'm going to use these photos for some sinister purpose but that is not the case. My aim here is really to kill my curiosity but I also want to know how different they are from each other with perhaps building whatever I can get into a document showcasing the genesis of each one.

    Thanks

    Hmm, didn't you start the the thread above which includes just about every SS X-Wing thread on the board? Oh well, I 'll throw this in for you. It's my Salzo V2.

    lol yes I did, but not all the posts have images like the one you have posted and that is the sort I am looking for. Do you have a higher res image you could email me?

    No, sorry that's it. I bought the kit off ebay and copied the picture. I never took a pic before building the kit.

    This knocks around what you're asking about. Not full kits though.

    Thanks Rob. The Maxi-Brute is interesting because there is a slight undercut (for want of a better word) that is similar, and not as pronounced, to that of the AMT model.
