    Hey, congrats on an awesome job! You've done just the right amount of weathering for this scale. If I didn't know it's the Bandai kit you could easily have passed it of as a much larger model!

    Cheers,
    Steve.
    Thanks for the compliment.

    I was worried my weathering might be too heavy handed.

    If he is replicating the Studio models, this is correct. They did not have glazing in the cockpits.

    Really appreciate the time , effort and skill that went into this beautiful build .
    I have a ' seemingly ' awkward question though , and apologies if this has been answered before here , or elsewhere . Thing is , I've been absent from this hobby for over 30yrs ( just got back into it in 2016 ) , so I was wondering " when did the cockpit/canopy area " become that blue/grey colour on the xwing ? . It seems to be a new ( ? ) thing to me . I mean , I don't remember seeing it so strikingly different to the rest of the fuselage colour in the OT films when they first came out . Any help/knowledge regarding this would be much appreciated .

    Cheers Ged

    The compositing FX in the film tended to wash out a lot of subtle colors making them look grey.

    The original model does have that greyish blue tint though.
    However If i had to redo this X-Wing I would probably go with a more grey than blue.
