Well as some of you may know I have been buying up parts for a Clone Wars Y-wing project.

The aim is to make one of the Y-wings in group leader colours like the Anakin Y-wing we already have. Something like this.

Posted Image

Then 4 more in normal colours again something like this.

Posted Image

I have made about 14 large parts orders and bought 2 ship only of Anakin's Y-wing to get me started. 3500+ parts is a bit of a eye opener. *huh*

Posted Image

While looking for pictures I found a someone has already given the Group leader ship a go. It looks ok but I don't like the normal red mixed in with the dark red so this will be the challange for me to do.

So tonight I have got things underway and put my Group leader together. Let me know what you think. :classic:

Even though it is basically a glorified parts swap, it looks good in red, can't wait to see the full squadron(s)

Are you going to MOC them? IIRC clone pilots don't fit in the cockpits.

I would have to agree with that, this looks like the red Y-wing set that ADHO did in LDD. I'd love to see you do a custom Y-wing from the ground up, but this looks pretty good already.

Well it kind of is and kind of is'nt. There are so many parts that you can't get in the dark red it made for some interesting changes but I think it turned out ok. The worst part is the lack of a dark red 12x3 wedge plate for the rest of the squadron. :laugh:

I had not even tried a clone in it :wacko: . Looks like a few more part orders are neaded. :laugh:

I'm only kidding! This real-brick version is much more impressive. I can't wait to see what all the finished models look like together! :thumbup:

The fin gets caught in the gap in the cockpit connections, and the 'bubble turret' isn't tall enough

Well I missed that! Very nice work ADHO15!

Well I have had a go and a clone gunner fits on the bubble just fine but the pilot does need seeing to. Back to BL I go. :laugh:

I like it. Maybe you could do a factory version, in all grey, and white.
Are you using the stock model, or making some mods, because that ugly turret kinda ruins the whole ship (which isn't to say that your isn't nice).
Anyway I look forward to seeing the whole wing.

That's a cool project you've started there.
The Y-Wing looks awesome in dark red.

This really looks great mutley! Yeah I know it's more of a MOD than a MOC, but it's still nice to see the Y-Wing in the dark red squad leader color. And ordering 3,500+ parts ain't no joke, so kudos for doing this and showing us how a real brickbuild Y-Wing squadron will look like. Looking forward for the completion of this project. :thumbup:

Mutly, that looks awesome, it's great to see something built exactly to spec, but in a different color scheme.

Most Impressive.

Looking forward to seeing what they all look like together! :sweet:

It interesting in that the TLG and Mutley model, the white and coloured parts are switched from the CW image you provided. I wonder what it would look like if it was the other way around...

EDIT: Just had another look and it's the correct way round for the first image but switched in the 2nd. Where did the 2nd image come from? The yellow version is still switched from the image.

The second picture is a grab from the great "Landing at Point Rain" season 2 episode.

The CW Y-wing colours can get a bit confusing, so here goes. I my first post you have the Flight Group leader (first picture) and then the normal colors of the rest of the squadron second picture. For the Yellow Y-wing we have Anakins Group leader colours and then reversed again for his squadron. These pictures might help explain. :classic:
