    I finally finished my Salzo SS X-Wing. Not shown in the photos below are the cockpit lights, R2 lights and engine lights. I hope to make a video soon to show that detail of the build.

    As always... Thanks for looking,

    That is a thing of pure beauty! The dirty shades of the different panels make it pop and look absolutely real. Nice job!

    The fact that the colors are very faded makes this model look so much better! ILM hardly ever used bold colors back then. Nice job!

    That looks awesome! Do you have templates for the red markings or did you make your own masks?

    Thank you ILMwannabe for your observations and compliments.
    vividfury, all I did was use 1" blue masking tape from a hardware store paint department. Also, thanks!

    I just wanted to say thank you, and it was a pleasure doing business with you. Amazing communications, and a fantastic job packing this x-wing. It arrived in my hands unscathed.

    Again, I appreciate you very much!
