    WOW!! That looks INCREDIBLE Lee!! Love all the parts like that, then so satisfying when the Primer goes down and it all comes together!! Looking forward to see your treatment on both!

    DaveG certainly did an AMAZING job with this project, and the different avenues folks are taking is inspiring! Love seeing all this!

    Tested.com has an interview with me from this year's RPF So Cal Prop Party where the Y-Wing (along with Escape Pod and Vaporator) is featured.

    Today I finally finished my 'Green Leader' project. MANY thanks to Dave-G for pushing me down this 41 year quest to have my own Y-Wing.

    I know this thread is all about the y-wing, and all three of yours look awesome...but I just love that Mosquito! Really great job all around! The modeling work is so tight on your Green Leader.

    While doing some research on the Y-Wing and TIE models, I came across some thing interesting in the Chronicles book on page 110:

    "Though it's the Rebel Alliance's older attack starfighter model, the Y-wing is a rugged, single-pilot craft, though one model also carries a weapons officer."

    So there you go. Keep an eye out for the model with two pilots. It also lends to the theory that the Y-Wing originally had two pilots and may have been upgraded at some point to an automated system possibly controlled by an Astromech.

    Actually, the confirmed Canon is that the Y-wing used by the Rebellion is a stripped down version of the BTL-A4 . It was used by both the Rebels and the Galactic Republic during the Clone wars. However during the Clone War, the BTL-A4 was itself a variant of the more commonly used BTL-B which had a Bubble turret with a separate gunner instead of the Automated turret found on the later models. What's really fascinating is that the major change the rebellion did was just removing most of the hull plating for easier access. So all the greebly texture everyone loves on the Y-wing is the actual mechanical internals that on almost every other ship is covered up

    That's right. The Star Wars Cross sections book has a nice drawing of a Y-Wing with it's hull plating intact and there's a McQuarrie drawing
    in the Art of Star Wars book that shows an area of the Y-Wing with some hull plating.

    Here's the prototype with the weapons officer. More than likely, this is the model the Chronicles author had mentioned:

    Even more interesting is one of the early drawings of the X-Wing pilot which bears a striking resemblance to the Y-Wing and TIE SS figures (ILM Figures).
