The One-Stop X-Wing Thread (1/24 original trilogy studio models only)

What happened to all the saved threads in this post?

They get lost when the site was upgraded? I hope not, this was a gold mine of information.

When photobucket changed their hot linking policy, a great many of the postings lost their crucial content, because many of them said, the difference between X-wing "A" and X-wing "B" is visible through the following picture... Or for reference material on the hero/pyro FX miniature here are the following pictures...

Considering the huge span of time, a great number of the people who contributed have either virtually or physically moved on, and their repository was photobucket, which may also have been deleted or edited. I'm sure if they frequented the site today, they would at least cooperate with resurrecting the material, if not the thread.

This loss of information was somewhat frustrating, as that I have one of the last of the original Captain Cardboard studio scale X-wings, and understanding what its accuracy issues are took substantial effort. In the end, I decided it was model making blasphemy to do anything but build it as is. For an accurate FX studio scale X-wing, the Salzo is the best bet, and I seem to be perpetually one step behind on ordering one. Cie lest vie.

Sad thing is, this thread was created to try to re-collect info that was in the ORIGINAL X-Wing thread circa 1999, most of which was lost during board moves. Here we go again....

You can still find that thread if you google Red 10, I believe. I am working on making a full studio scale red 10. I have some good pics of the model. It was not detailed but it had some interesting stuff. It had yellow nose and yellow down the main body to the nose. Grey cockpit canopy.
