[MOD] Poe's X-(better) Wing

Recommended Posts

As Vodnik, I didn't like the wings of Poe's X-Wing, too wide and not accurate, as they should be totally flat when closed.

So I tried a little something :

Here are the pieces I used. Most of them belongs to the original set :

I used the corner plate to elevate the wing (I could use any other plate, but I needed two identical plates from my tiny collection), and the 2x6 plates is here to lower the other wing. The idea is to get them at the same level when closed.

On these pictures you can see where the different plates go :

Et voilà ! Now I have to deal with this canopy issue... :tongue:

Great! You erased the major flaw of the set and I'm surprised how easy this mod can be done. I wonder why the designers didn't made it accurate diretcly. Perhaps because they had not enough source material.

Nevermind, good work!

Im liking this a lot, and seeing such a simple fix for this is making me desperate to get one now! Are the wings still just as solid as before the mod?

Thanks for the comments.

Until now, the wings seem solid enough. But your question is relevant Fuppylodders, as the wings are connected to the engines by their top side only.
