Hello everyone,

Today a Geonosian I traded arrived. I really like it but it doesn't have wings. Since I'd really like to have some but don't want to spend $7-$10 on BL I'd like to print my own. Could anyone please scan these wings for me so I can print them? Here are the wings I'm talking about: http://www.bricklink...mPic.asp?P=bb30

Many thanks in advance! :thumbup:

PS. I don't known if this is in the right sub-forum. If not, then please move. Thanks.

You want to print a trans-clear plastic wing?
Good luck :grin:
This'll do just fine in the Star Wars forum.
Now if anyone does the scan, I'll add this to the Instructions Q's & A's topic.

Hey guys,

one user from the german forum "Imperium der Steine" has printed the wings on overhead projector slide. In my opinion the result is very cool:

You can find the thread with the pictures here.

€: Oh I forgot. The right pic can be used. It's his scan of the wings.  :classic:

Darth Lion, thanks for the link! With some adjustments I can print, fold, glue and plasticize my own double-sided wings. Great! :laugh:

Wow.
Thanks for linking to that.
I've taken the liberty of copying the scan.
So here it is:

I surely hope someone could do that.
Also I've added this to the Q's & A's Index.

Hey, I'm thinking about giving my Geonosian some wings. When I was in my dark ages I had just bought the set randomly, and threw out the wings, but if you could take a bpicture of what thry'd look like in paper, I might print those out too.  :tongue:

You can also just print 2 and glue them together, like I did. If you're interested in buying a plasticized on, I'm soon going to sell things like this together with someone in America.
