Cool....
I'm not crazy about that particular Y-wing's color scheme and pipe configuration.

I wonder who's going to be the first to redo theirs???

I've got my arsenal of new tubes/pipes, paint, photos, ETC. all lined up and ready to go and rip mine apart the minute it arrives... :lol Not a second less.. :lol

I'll get one but not until I see a review in regards to any manufacturing defects and shipping damages. Can't afford to tie up my prop budget until I feel that the product is worth it and ready.

I think the Y-Wing itself will be top notch.... but I'm actually counting on shipping damages. Damaged units seem to pop up as seconds on Ebay cheap as chips. I picked up the SE AT-AT for $270. No snow base or signed plaque, but for a $700-1000 savings, I certainly don't mind :) Got a plaque coming from Wynnstudio.

Mine could arrive in 50 pieces and I wouldn't send it back. :D

It will go through a total and complete transformation from added pilot, to complete repaint, to all new and different tubes and piping, so any manufacturing and shipping issues don't mean jack sqaute to me.

I got it for the bird, not it's collectabilty. :lol

If I am not mistaken, the guys who did the master for MR were Steve Neisen, Doug Mayo, Nick Sainton-Clark, Dan Loes, Ed Minto and Dan Satterthwaite.... knowing that.. I know it will be very nice indeed. Very talented people.

As I understand it.. even their master was changed a bit by MR,.. though I can't imagine why? Any ideas?

As Y-Wings go, even though it was one of my personal favorite designs,.. I think we're all lucky it is being done at all. LOL. :)

I will post a review when I receive it.. along with pics. I would think that we will see much of it as more of us get them in.

Some of my more important projects are begining to be finished and I will have much to share with you all soon. :)

LOL... guess mentioning it slipped my mind. :$ No need to think about the MR stuff though... you will be busy enough with the projects you will be starting in Sept.. :rolleyes

Saw the folder with your "little project".... very intriguing. Are those Rebel Snow Turrets I see being used? You are one of the most creative and detail talented people I know Bob. It's just amazing what you come up with. "Please sir,.. may I have some more?" LOL....Name that movie.

Aside from our planned work together...I am very excited to be getting this MR Y-Wing. There is no hiding or slipping of mentioning that today. :D

Speakin' o' which...I'm not waiting till next year to put ductwork in the shop for heat and AC. I'm doing that right quick. I worked only about an hour out there tonight...it was 90 degrees. Even with a fan going, I was miserable...

It was the Muppets. I see you have no appreciation of the Classics. You bastage. :p :lol

Well...you're both right.

Coby is correct that it was in fact from Oliver.

Bob (HandSolo) is correct in the fact the the Muppets did the Oliver. seen using the same words..lol.

They're both classics, but only one was worthy of serious praise..lol. I enjoyed them both.:)

Sorry to take things off track from the Y...lol. ;) I just get cheesy sometimes. B)

I know Coby was correct...more so than I. I was just ribbin' him.

Wow, no wash at all. Just a bunch of airbrushing that looks like...airbrushing.

Nice model, though.

Dirty. The Y-wings MUST be dirty. Anything cleaner is just...

So basically this Y-wing has the Gold Leader markings, but has details from the 'Red Jammer' bird and a red R2 unit instead of a blue R2 with a red neck band?
