The One-Stop X-Wing Thread

Going through many of the pages here in the Studio Scale Models section of the RPF I've noticed there are 3 constants about Studio Scale modeling.

They are X-Wing's, Millennium Falcon's and everything else!

Because there are so many fantastic projects underway and new threads constantly being added it doesn't take too long before a good thread is buried under all the new topics and eventually "lost".

This thread is for the "X-Wing-philes" here at the RPF (myself included) with links to the many threads in the Studio Scale section. And to make things easier for people to find their favourite X-Wing thread I've gone through the last 20-25 pages and picked out the best topics relating to X-Wings and put links to them into a single thread for everyone's pleasure.

And if there are anymore threads that are not listed below let me know and I will include them into this post. There is no set criteria for a link to be added other than having good in-progress pics and info about the build/paint work.

I hope you all find this useful. Enjoy.

(Those will allergies are urged to take precaution against some of the threads which may be old and dusty) :)

Re: The One-Stop X-Wing Thread

Thanks Moffeaton. I was hoping this could be a sticky thread as I didn't want it to get buried in the large number of threads that get posted each day.

Gone but not forgotten.
Re: The One-Stop X-Wing Thread

This is a great idea. Plus I'm thrilled my thread is in here too. It's too bad a lot of the really old threads have lost some of the pictures. If this isn't stickied, it needs to be. Good work.

Re: The One-Stop X-Wing Thread

I actually thought I added yours, Rob. Obviously not but I will as you did an amazing job. I am being selective about what to include as I would prefer to include threads that have detailed information about the build and any tricks or tips that others can use.

But when I have a free 5 minutes I will add yours. :)

Re: The One-Stop X-Wing Thread

Hey, my pathetic little MPC build is in here too! Awesome!

Great resource.

Re: The One-Stop X-Wing Thread

I seriously hope mine comes out half as good as Guy's. In fact with his superb illustrated paint techniques it should have it's own sticky.
