Custom X-Wing
when i got the lego x-wing, i thought it was perfect. but when i went to england and got a small model of the ship, i saw many flaws. first the guns were way too short so i used a technic x-pin and the tips of the stock guns. then i saw the landing gear. wrong positioning. the front landing gear was moved up to the tip and the rear was moved to under the engines. then i saw no details. i added them. then the color scheme was off so i changed it. the exaust was elongated. then the most difficult part was the back. the stock version was all wrong so i changed the whole back and added detail on it. (not shown in pics) sorry. the cockpit was easy but fusterating. i added a targeting computer which comes from behind luke. the controls now have buttons rather than the 2 by 2 slant with the death star trench view. overall it is more movie related than lego related(in terms of detail)

Good idea making this more movie-accurate, but with mine I MEANT to only change the colors. I wasn't trying to modify it I just like blue better than red.

Customizing Lego sets has become favorite thing to do. You got a great start with this one. I have this set as well and have plans to do the same. Keep up the good work.

Nice model; being a bit of a perfectionist myself I appreciate the way you've tried to improve this model and make it more accurate; and you've done well !
