This is a photographic composition of the X-Wing Model finished with a Hasbro Legacy Tie Fighter enhanced to a studio scale model standard to give more action to this photo session.
I chose to paint Luke's Red 5. It took me a week to paint all the weathering and different panel color details studying all the possible reference material of Luke's fighter ( Not much left I must say)
I am still working on this model as still needs more weathering on the fuselage to resemble the magnificent paint job the ILM modelers did so long ago.

This is the product of 198 days of work: a 1:35 scale Incom T-65 X-wing Space Superiority Starfighter.

I built it out of an old AMT-Pro-Shop X-wing Fighter kit, and I kept all the motorized features and sound effects. I am in love with this bird, and the fact that the motors all work and work well just makes this an awesome model kit.

I replaced a good chunk of this kit. One of the most prominant areas I worked on is the cockpit. The area behind the pilot was just *bad*, and I mean BAD. It would have made a good *mural*, but as far as representing the targeting computer, hydraulic pistons for the canopy, and the various wires and piping that runs down the back of the seat, it's no good. I scratchbuilt a lot of detail, including two functional pistons for the canopy that really raise and lower when it moves. The 'intakes' for the engines have a new support beam. The exhaust can turkey feathers were thinned and detailed. The ridiculous detail inside the wings was removed and replaced with simple piping like on the miniature. The laser cannons are almost completely scratcbuilt save for the main body. The engine deck has a ton of new greebles to break it up. The torpedo launchers are now completely hollow and have actual torpedoes in them, ready to kill a Death Star.

One of the biggest areas of improvement though has to be the base. I felt all that space needed *something* to break it up. I thought I could get by with simply adding descriptive text, like in a museum, but then I got completely carried away and added a bunch of small displays featuring components from the 'real' starfighter: the ion drive, repulsorlift projector, hyperdrive, laser cannon, and a selection of missile weapons the ship could be fitted with. Each of these has a light above it and small plaque next to it explaining what it is, what it does, and it's rating (example: Krupx Munitions MG7-a Proton Torpedo, Charge: Baradium, Detonator: Proton-based, Yield: 9,900 Megatons). The ion engine I'm especially proud of. I work at a jet engine refurbishment facility, and I get to see real engines all the time, so I was able to put this knowledge into building a realistic-looking fusial thrust engine. Also, the turkey feathers on this engine are 100% scratchbuilt, including the flame holder.

Back to the cockpit, I created a special decal for the main console which was semi-transparent. I had to use several decal layers and paint on top of the inner ones in order to get the white and silver parts. It looks just about perfect though, especially when it's lit up.

The model was painted in Camouflage Gray with Testors Red striping. The off color panels are all various mixes of green, yellow, and blue gray. I spent a lot of time researching Red Five, trying to get as close to the miniature as possible. The panel lines on the model are not the same as the miniature though, so I had to fudge a few of the off-color panels.

All in all though I'm extremely happy with how this one turned out. It's the best model I've ever built, period.

It is not in my collection, however. I built it as a Christmas present for my niece, a young Star Wars fan and a terrific young girl (she's a big sci-fi nerd, like her uncle. She can even hold her own in a Comic Book Guy-level nerd fight! I'm so proud . . . :D ). She opened this thing up, then I had her flip the "on" switch. The wings split open to attack position . . . and I had to help her pick her jaw up off the floor. ;)

The only thing that could have made it better was if I were able to rig the box like I had planned. I wanted to put one of those Star Wars card circuit boards in it and rig it so it would play when the lid was completely off the box. But I ran out of time and had to wrap it up as-is. But it was alright; her reaction was reward enough for all the hard work I put in it. :)

I made a YouTube video of the wings and cockpit canopy in action, complete with the cliche' of using Star Wars music:

For more pics, here's the Photobucket album I used during it's construction:

By the way, before I gave this model away I took it to a Christmas party hosted by one of the guys from my model club. I brought this along, because I knew a few guys would want to see it in action. It ended up being the center of attention, with all the guys there lining up in order to push the buttons and see it work. They even asked me, one of the *neophytes*, if I would explain how I did it! These guys are serious modelers and are asking *me* how I weathered it, how I scratchbuilt the components, where I learned to scribe . . . I was a great night. ;)

The Nexus 1/18th Scale Snowspeeder Resin Model Kit is based on the 46,8 cm (18,4 Inches)
wide ILM Filming model. The Nexus Snowspeeder is 60% of the size of the original model
measuring 27,8 cm (10,94 inches) from wing tip to wing tip.

Although the model is sized down in scale, all the angles and original shape has been
reproduced as accurate as possible to maintain the original look of the beautiful ILM
original filming models.

The kit comes with two highly detailed Hoth Rebel Pilots, including heads for Luke, Wedge and a gunner, with the corresponding helmet decals for Luke, Wedge, Dak and Jansen, plus a pair of realistic looking goggles for each pilot.

Other features of the Revisited Snowspeeder Resin Kit are it's fully detailed cockpit, 4 articulated Air Brakes and a decal sheet for fuselage markings.

Just as the X-Wing kit, the Snowspeeder kit will be of high quality resin and casting with
almost no bubbles.

Kit Measures:
Length: 12,62” 32,05 cm (Radiator to tip of the guns)
Width: 10,94” 27,8 cm
Height: 3,15” 8,01 cm

Captain Commando Mako was asigned to, with his commando squad "Omikron", to a Bothan Jedi and his human youngling padawan. His squad was lost at a Seperatist factory base in the Outer Rim. The Republic losses were so great that the two jedi and the clone were the only ones left out of two squads with commanders. At this point the jedi master appointed him the rank of commander, but he will never forget his pod brothers and commando training.

Dear friends!
You can help Mary to win the competition - looks.fm/cosplay/vk3380468
:) (Smile) :happybounce: 

As you remember, we recently launched a creative noncommercial project «Venture to your Dream» (details about the project can be found here - svetliy-sudar.deviantart.com/a….
And the first participant of this project was our friend Maria Kitaeva, recently joined the ranks of the Rebel Legion Outpost Ruusan (www.rebellegion.com), working closely with the 501st Legion (www.501st.com).
Maria suggested that we bring to life a character from the game Star Wars: The Old Republic - Jedi Grand Master Satele Shan, and we gladly agreed to help her in the context of our project. Jedi Showoff by SickLullabies by Svetliy-Sudar  This probe's for you! 
Our work was complicated by the fact that the above organization very seriously in the question of the admission of new members, demanding much to replicas of the costumes of the Star Wars universe . Therefore, all cadets when joining the Legion should send detailed photos of his costume to officer of his Outpost to test for reliability and accuracy. In particular suit should fully comply with the canons, specify Lucasfilm Ltd. (lucasfilm.com) when creating the famous Saga.

We have tried to reflect the most complex aspects of the work in the master class, which you can read here - svetliy-sudar.deviantart.com/a….

And now, after several months of selection of necessary materials, discussions, sewing, waiting for a response and correction officers of the Legion, we can proudly present to you the result of our long painstaking work.
