In 1994, I read the Star Wars novelization for a 5th grade book report. We had to make something concerning the book we had read, and I chose to create a model of the X-wing fighter. My original version of the X-wing had different engines and colours than this model. For the most part, the X-wing you see in the pictures contains most of the same pieces, and is the same shape, of the model I built 13 years ago.
A size comparison between ship and pilot.
Showing something the current set doesn't have...the belly storage compartment. Now your pilot can fling luggage just like Luke Skywalker!
Before the R2 style dome, there was....the trash can lid!
