Studio Scale X-Wing Fighter

This page will show the construction of the Studio Scale Xwing model from "Captain Cardboard".
April 24, 2003. The Model is finally DONE!! Please keep in mind, this is a model of the "FX Filming Miniature Replica." Therefore, there is no "window" and the details are designed to reflect an actual studio model, not a model of an X-Wing. There are more than 70 parts to this model! The model is about 2 feet long and weighs nearly 5lbs. The molding quality is absolutely amazing. Crisp and clean. The 'ruler' in the "parts" picture is 18" to give you a sense of scale.
