Feel free to consider it a teaser for my 1:40 X-wing WIP project. I wanted to build and X-wing, so I've finnaly made one.

Also, I would like to thank Fallenangel309 for providing me with some very usefull links, that are helpfull no matter

in what scale you're making an X-wing.

I know I've made rear end and cockpit wrong, but this time I wanted cool look, not acuracy.

It's to small to nitpick on every detail (what I almost did).

I promise that my minifig scale X-wing will be the most acuratte one you've ever seen.

I hope you like it!

Please C&C!

EDIT: I should really visit EB SW blog more often. Thanks for blogging!

Nice work! :thumbup: Despite any inaccuraces, it's got a sleek, clean look to it. Love the hexagonal back.

W-W-...Wicked! I love it. I'm not skilled enough as Brickdoctor to spot any inaccuries, so for me it looks perfectly accurate. :tongue: One of the best Mini X-wings I've seen. Good job!

Very Very nice Stardusty. Some very clever techniques in there. As for accuracy the rear panel is actually quite good, I mean it's hexagonal right. The only problem I have is the wings appear a bit too thick. Oh and the guns extend the correct length up to the start of the block at the end of the nose.

Thank you for your comments.

I got the guns right, actually, but it isn't visible very well on this pictures. I think I have picture of it.

They extend all the way to the 1x1 tile behind the nose (that's white, since I don't have LBG cheese slopes). :wink:

What can I say, Stardusty. This is just awesome. Very nicely done. This is the best mini X-wing I've seen in my entire life.

I'm looking forwrad to your minifig scale one. Based on the WIP I saw at your place, you are telling the truth: It's really going to be the most accurate one.. ever!

The whole moc is astonishing , but I will agree with BrickDoctor on the back part being the best.

Stardusty, I'd like to congratulate you on making a great MINI. :thumbup: I've always felt that having just the right mix of detail and shaping was one of the hardest things about making MINI models, but you've pulled that off very nicely.

I like that even at this small scale, you've managed to include certain major details such as the hexagonal cross-section of the rear fuselage and the length of the laser cannons. Plenty of NPU here as well - it's great what you've done with the flick-fire missile and the clip light plate (and are those pneumatic T-pieces holding the wings together?).

It is true that the wings seem a tad too thick and that the rear and canopy are somewhat off, as you mentioned, but I think that this way it allows for a sleeker and more detailed overall appearance. Nice work. :classic:

Very nice, I'm really impressed how you packed this X-Wing with all the interesting and accurate details considering it's in mini-scale. Great job! :thumbup:

Very cool Stardusty! I really like the scale you've got here. just the right size in my opinion. :thumbup:

I'm glad you like it!

...(and are those pneumatic T-pieces holding the wings together?).

...

Yes, yes they are. :classic:

That was only choice I had, and it works really good (although wings can fall-off while changing the S-foil mode).

I'm a fan of Logo's 30051 mini x-wing, but yours is far superior. The hexagonal rear section is great but what I really like is how the top wing's connection doubles as the greebly area at the back. Love it :thumbup:
