MPC XWing on acid (y) (y) :cool: :cool:
Yeah! I had a few mushrooms myself. Especially if you preserve them in a jar with honey, that way they don't go bad. oops! wrong post.
fun build and happy with the work work I've done to it. as mentioned earlier I love this mold/cast and profile! very sleek. yeah, this model needs work but if you put your imagination to it and some modifications you can do wonders with it. bandai - too small and the canopy looks way too big. I have many scales of this x-wing kit , resin, plastic, crappy plastic, crappy resin. 3D print - PLA/SLA - from tiny to huge. but no one has been able to replicate the old MPC version we ( or I ) love. not to mention if anyone who builds this MPC/ERTL kit it is considered Studio Scale.

Really great work. I just misread the title and realized it should have been: This OLD MPC X-Wing ;)

Well, actually they used the MPC XWing in some background scenes at ILM;)...so it`s ``Studio Scale`` in my book!

As in 'This Old House"? :D
If I may share since it seems appropriate, my own recent completion of an MPC build that took ~2 years to bring to fruition...

Anyone can share here, isn't that what this forum is about! I love seeing other people's work! I'm digging the paint scheme color choice and the insignias only the wings. I see you have a pilot, must be nice! mine is flying blind until I find one. LOL
it's great to see people who have built this kit and do all the little modifications to it that others have knowing how much it adds to the model. now I see all the mods you've done and know how much work and thought goes into it. just the subtle addon's make all the difference. for me the wings were the biggest upgrade like yours. I like the kill strike count on the side of the cockpit. one could go nuts on this kit doing what ever. in a way it's nice how somewhat simplistic this kit is out of the box makes for other possibilities/clean slate.
