I am in the process of updating my website to a new look.  In the meantime I went ahead and condensed the four pages of the X-Wing build up into two pages.  I didnt cut anything out, I just made better use of space and such and I feel it is better.

Your site was great and is even better now. Thanks for putting that together. I have been visiting quite often. :thumbsup :thumbsup

Question: How did you drill the engines straight? I've been toying with this but I'm afraid of drilling and having it break through off center.

Thanks.

Well I hate to admit this but one of them isnt. It was the last one I did and I just eyeballed it instead of measuring like I did for the other three. I measured the height of the piece and through some wizzy wig math figured out where the center of the engine needed to be.

After I got one where I felt it was straight I did two others. The last one I just looked at side by side with another. Once it was all together and too late to change I noticed one engine was off kilter.

Sad thing is, when I look at the model that is all I see. Grrrrrrr

All I see is a fantastic piece of work that I'd be incredibly proud of. I've followed your progress from the start and I must say that I've really enjoyed the WIP updates and really appreciate the effort and time that you spent to document your progress on the project.

Kudos.
