    Aug 21, 2011, 12:36 PM - The One-Stop X-Wing Thread (1/24 original trilogy studio models only) #1

    Member Junk Pilot has offered to create a "one-stop" Star Wars X-Wing Studio Scale Model thread (1/24 original trilogy studio models only). This thread will contain links to all of the studio scale X-Wing related threads.

    Continue to the second post of this thread and enjoy the reference material, as well as a trip down memory lane! :)

    Aug 22, 2011, 9:45 AM - The One-Stop X-Wing Thread #2

    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)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Can anyone point me to the link of a guy building a CC X Wing that was looking awesome? He first posted pictures of it all clean as if it was out of the factory and then started weathering. Thanks

    It's called "the Definitive X-Wing thread?" and one of the reasons why I didn't include it was because he used the name that I would have preferred to have called THIS thread!


    JK really.


    I don't know why I didn't include it but it is now at the top of the Studio Scale build links. It has some good pics of the build in progress and information about paint colours as well.


    (Actually I DO remember why it wasn't included. It was because he used the name that I would have preferred to have called this thread!!!! lol)

    Hey man ask the mods to merge the two threads and change the name of your thread to mine. I really don't mind whose thread it is so long as there is one.

    Junk Pilot,

    thanks for the idea and work making this thread. The RPF is already a great site; however, helping to organize it in a meaningful way will only make it better.
    I also believe this thread should be "stuck". By the way, here is a great x-wing build that I did not see on your list: http://www.therpf.com/f10/x-wing-build-71174/
