    [MOC] BTL-S3-ish Y-Wing x 2

    Hi, I tried to redesigne Jerac's Y-wing's cockpit a bit and could use some help with it. First of all I have to say it's a pity they don't make the 'Windscreen 4 x 4 Roll Cage' in sand blue, and for that I had to change the color of the cockpit top part to light grey. But my biggest problem is, that I'm missing one pair of side windows and I can't figure out how to include them in my design. Now I'm using 'Slope 45 4 x 4 Double with hinge as my cockpit roof/hatch, but it obviously does'n have those much desired side windows. I'm extremely open to design suggestions with this. Thank you.

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Here's my x-wing story. First of all I want to thank and praise Jerac for this amazing design. It looks stunning and the way it’s put together leaves me utterly speechless. Standing ovation, incredible piece of art. I choose to build the red-5 version. The building process itself was extremely rewarding and I got it all finished pretty easily. The hardest part for me was attaching the top part of the nose fuselage (page 94, step 11). As I got the other end attached, the other end popped loose. I had to adjust it maybe 5 or 6 times before I got it right, so in the end even that wasn't excessively tricky. And here's a photo of my finished beauty. It's pretty much like the original design. Only a few subtle changes here and there. The most visible one being the larger engine exhausts. To my eye they were originally a little bit too "skinny". I have this 30-year old x-wing model kit and when I compared the exhausts of the lego design to my old model kit, they were more or less the same size even though the lego design is otherwise bigger. Yeah, I know the exhausts might be a little too big now, but somehow the overall silhouette of the ship pleases my eye even more this way. Here’s a picture to demonstrate the size comparison. Next I'm planning to purchase the parts for Jerac's tie-fighter. I already bought the instructions and can't wait to get to build it and have it displayed next to my oh-so-precious x-wing.
