About this creation





With the re release of TLG X-Wing I revisited my own and was not impressed.

After a lengthy battle with LDD and a couple of bricklink orders I finally have one I'm proud of again.

It's also good to feel that the old one lives on inside this build as parts.

Excellent work here. This is impressivly accurate and very clean and professional looking. I really like the back details and the wings look much more formidable. If I had any complaints it might be that there could be a little bit of a scale issue with the nose and the wings, they seem a little short to me. But I really can't say for sure and it still looks great. Well done.

Quoting T. Young So does it have any support for the wings or does it just hold on by friction? I believe my wings were a bit longer than that. So I wanted to know if there was anyway to secure it further while still remaining as small as possible.
Just friction I'm afraid. Maybe experiment with a worm gear, it may keep it small and will definatley hold the weight of your wings.

Quoting T. Young Very nice. How do the wings stay on? For the past few weeks Ive been trying to do wings like that but I cant figure out how to secure the wings. Could you please explain or post a picture of how the wings are secured to the ship.
If you check out the new pic above you can see the internals. This was about as compact as I could make it so that the wing attachment didn't take over the whole design. Using two of the grey Technic pieces for each wing secured to the white technic housing assembly in the centre by the tripple blue pins with friction provides a quite stable solution for a display model. I haven't tested it but the join may hold one extra stud length on the wings but my model didn't call for it. So far the have all remained in place just fine and the sandwich nature of all of the housing has proven rather robust. Thanks for your interest and to J.T. for the flattery.
