    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.
    Kind words mate, I'm all for helping or giving you some idea's if you want any?
    I really do just make it up as I go along but try and remember each time what I did. If I did the Red-3 again, I would do it very differently,much less pastels.

    I know pastels weren't used but they are good to replicate aged paint though.

    I started this thread and I got a lot of good tips on painting my SS X-Wing from the really experienced members here I think it can be helpful to lots of people.

    For what it's worth here's an x-wing drawing from Profiles in History's catalog I received today. I got extremely excited when I saw this and the y-wing front/back views are going to be auctioned! They're very interesting to me because I've never seen them before. I'm thinking they might be included in the new blueprints book, but I've not seen the book yet, so I can't check. But that price?!

    The description states that they're made by model maker Steve Gawley (now of White Room Artifacts, LLC). It seems they're of a series of views - these being the front/rear. I assume it's as reference for the full scale set pieces. I can't figure out what the area below between the fuselage and engines are depicting. They don't seem super accurate to the studio scale models, but maybe they can be helpful in some way. Something new to discuss at least...

    Early drawings depict a sort of dual cylindrical bump out back there.

    I have seen a draft done by Gawley from August 27th, 1975 (revised 1 October '75) that shows the cylindrical bump outs "deleted" - per notes they were the original housings/location of the landing gears...

    I plan to make a kit of the proto Gawley X-Wing from the materials out there... once I clear the log of stuff I have on the bench! It's to me a real-world bridge between the McQuarrie and the studio model.

    Ah...cool. Thanks for filling in the gaps. Sounds like a fun project.

    You'll also note the fuselage is a bit odd in the bottom section. I guess that's another area where you can differentiate. The fuselage doesn't take that big step to a larger rear like the models. As I know about the models, that rear portion was probably made bigger to accommodate all the mechanisms (and maybe other stuff) for the wings to open and close.

    guys, all the links in the collection are compromised due to the hijacking. Maybe they should either be taken down for now or corrected?

    I was in the process of adding a new link the other day and noticed they had the old rpf.com in them. However, when I added the link they all changed to therpf.com links.

    Hopefully the links will be good.

    In the process of making this thread a little more user friendly.

    Does anyone know of any good threads on the Estes Maxi-Brute at all? I've only seen an image here and there but nothing substantial.

    It's like I've always said. Thin canopy frames = heaven.

    Looks like the wings don't want to stay closed. Note the tape.

    The McQuarrie X-wing... seems to me that what we call the McQuarrie X-wing probably derived from whatever was the latest thing to come off Joe Johnston's drawing board at that point.... Same with the TIE in the McQuarrie painting, not a Ralph design, a Joe design. By this stage in the production, McQuarrie's role seems to have switched from design to production painting proper, a task that saw him sticking ILM designs into his paintings to show ILM how those designs could look together in a final shot. The whole Death Star background in the 'McQuarrie X-wing' picture is definitely copied directly from a Joe Johnston sketch.
