    Many thanks DaveG for compiling all this information into one thread. The Y-Wing has been under-represented for so long and it's refreshing to see so much great information now.

    To everyone else can we please keep all posts informative rather than asking general questions. This will prevent this thread from becoming clogged with useless banter.

    This is the remains of the original thread, it provided me with an incredible amount of information. And since there's few pictures it made me hunt and search for myself to confirm or deny any kits mentioned within it. Definitely a great starting point and base for learning the research and time that went into finding all the info available now. I was only just beginning grade school when the remains of that thread were transferred here from the old site!!!

    I have a question about the studio miniatures used in ANH. I know we've all heard the story about the engine cones being made out of L'eggs plastic egg containers. I actually remember those eggs and they were fairly good size.
    By my estimation that would put the filming miniatures at a larger size than I've ever seen any pictures of. What's the deal with that?

    They trimmed them back a good bit. I think the dimms are in this thread somewhere .

    Would love those dimms.
    The closest I can find is 10 to 15 mm cut off.
    Not sure what is correct.

    I know I’ve seen the measurements somewhere. I just went through Dave G’s thread and didn’t find them. When I have time later this week I’ll look in a few other places and see if I can dig them up.

    Edited to add:
    Don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to just measure my Nice-n Gold Leader....must have had a blonde moment.
    1 5/8” from the tip of the dome to where it mates with the Saturn can.
    I imagine DaveG’s patterns would be pretty close to the same .
