Hello my friend.
I was searching around on sketchup warehouse the a couple of months ago and came across an amazingly detailed X Wing fighter made by a guy called Matthias K. I saw your comment and i agree that it is indeed "the best made x wing out there"
BUT. i was extremely upset to see that the guy had completely ignored the color code for all x wings and had drowned the whole fighter in a rusty light brown texture.
I have now corrected this error, i have re painted and textured Red five back to it's full potential and glory.
I used pictures from the original new hope hero model to be accurate with painting and even found a 3D rebel pilot chopped him up and sat him in the seat with his hands firmly planted on the joy stick.
Here is the link and hope you like.

I always love your re-paints.

Honestly, I can't fault people for having badly textured ships. I hate doing that part. (And, I'm colorblind)

But every time you do one of these, I have to admit you're much better at it!

Thanks mate.
I do understand you and other modelers with the painting part, it must be frustrating to spend weeks on a model and then think oh shit now i have to pant it,
Painting usually takes less than a quarter of the time it takes to build a complete model so i don't get so weighed down with it although the X Wing took way longer because of the research taken in order to get the correct color code for the original red five, the cockpit and pilot is another story completely.
thanks again and take care mate.
