[Concept Art] – Colin Cantwell's X-wing

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've had the idea of making the model of Colin Cantwell's concept X-wing model for quite some time, and as soon as I saw the contest, it became my opportunity to make it finally:

which is based on Lucas's original sketch from 1974:

Excellent work!  Could you post more detailed pictures (maybe a cutaway view) of the wing mechanism?  I've been thinking of building a Cantwell X-wing in Studio for quite some time, but I haven't been able to figure out the wing box.

Here is the mechanism for wings, which is a bit cheating because they won't move and stay like this, you have to take out the pieces, turn wings 90 degrees to each other, and lock it on the axle.

@Artizan The ship's volumetry built is perfect, the shapes and the techniques you did match the source material perfectly :) The Force Is Strong in this one!
