still a work in progress...but I always wondered how cool it would be if they painted the X wing fighter to look like a real rebel vehicle

(the kit is an older snapkit, empire strikes back, I think)

I still have quite a bit to do, mostly detail painting and final assembly, but she is close enough to tell

 

really the only big change that needed to be made was the opening up of the motors, to fit the turbine wheels (stock on the right, modified on the left) about 30 minutes with the dremel did the trick

the turbine wheel came from a 69 buick Riviera, and will be stripped and repainted steel

the only other modification I made was cut out a bunch of clutter from the body to allow the flag decal to sit flush

on second though, I should have cut a LOT more and put a whole new panel on the back, but I think it worked out

thanks Jim

I am not sure if I actually came up with this idea myself, or if I saw it online somewhere. I tried googling it by different keywords but all that came up was a millennium falcon in DOH livery.
