Yes, yes! But this isnt what you think, ive had this kit for about 4 yrs and decided I wanted to make the red"jammer" version just to be different, so i reserched and made a few calls etc... and after all of the grinding and sanding and filling and replacing some kit parts, i find out that the proportions if the front fuselage is off and the main body is off also, so i decided to make a different Y-wing, a y-wing from red squadron.
Im about 75% finished with this, I do have a few greeblies left to put on it and continue with the weathering.
Now onto the pics.

Splendid Jerry !
I love the colors, may I ask you what yellow did you use for the canopy ? It looks exactly like the yellow used by ILM on Red Jammer and some X-Wings canopies. I would repaint my Red4 canopy !

Re: Oh No! Not another red Y wing!

Would this be the same color we see on some red leader panels also? I always thought that color was Floquil D&RGW Yellow. Here's a chart of their offerings:

Sorry for the brief hijack. Could you tell us more about the modifications to the original kit? Planning on putting some cannons on top of this thing?

Re: Oh No! Not another red Y wing!

Hey Paul, this is a better Floquil paint chart-

Some of the colors are a bit off but most are pretty close.
The mods are mostly parts removed, the replacement parts are from the airfix bf 109, a bunch of them come from that kit then the centurion parts on the wing.
The correct cannons on top of the canopy are from the 109 kit too and are the machine guns that are in the nose cone of the aircraft, the ones in the wings fit the gold y-wings.
Also the top laser cannons had two little rockets on the sides of them.

The "tubing" is green insulated single strand copper wire.
One of the most important mod was the installation of the partial r2 strip on the lower rear fuselage and then the S-5 part on the right hand nacelle.

Al, thanks bud! Im working on this and trying to finish the resource colector and some BSG stuff.

Julien, it is Floquil south pacific armour sand. when photographing it, it looks more yellow than the reefer yellow, which is probably the correct color on the red leader.

Thanks for the info Jerry.

I like very much the weathering on the cockpit it looks like on old planes when they blew up another one and had oil stains on the cockpit !
I know you're not replicating Red Jammer but do you planning to add some decals ? I really think it would be cool !

Thanks Dean!

Julien, if you look at pics 22,23,24,25, you can see a couple of decals already on it.
Ive already have the small kill marking on the underside (tie fighter) near the nose.

Re: Oh No! Not another red Y wing!

I finished up the weathering on this and all i have to do is place 10 more parts on it and she`ll be done!
Martyn has asked that i take some pics in natural light, so i did, and i couldnt have picked a sunnier day to do it.
Be warned pics are large and a lot of them.
