    It's common, the Force is not with out significant others, we can only hope that they realize and do not fall to the dark side of the Force, where lie evil things such as alimony, divorce, loneliness, bad breathe. The unbearable. :)

    Dnalor, you did a great gob on this x-wing.

    On the basis, it's a very beautiful model to be built but you made an extrahordinaire work with the lighting.

    I would like to know, how you made it. With which electronic component. Is there a software you works with......that kind of stuff.

    My 3 foot Galactica have lights but mine do not arrive at the ankles of your work.

    Great work :thumb:

    Life, an illusion it is, not. All you think what is not, is not what you think it is, in your head, as it is now, happening it was. The Force, can be felt, all over, and not felt anywhere, it can be!

    When you look at the dark side, careful you must be, behind your eyes, dark it is, in your head, for the head, dark, looks back.

    Change your mind yet? :)

    That large nose-cone would made a nice hat ;)

    Wow!! I thought I was the only one who sees hats in things. Many of these models would make great hats. Maybe it's the first person perspective wearing such a model would bring. Not only would you have made the model, you can be the model too!! :mrgreen: :thumb: :lol:

    The SnowSpeeder is an excellent candidate. It is a wonderful model in itself. :)

    Ok i made my transport holder..
    nothing fancy but it should work...

    and then slowy heading home...
    i looked for the best highways without to much speedbumps that he will survive the trip.

    i started also my new project..the Snowspeeder :)

    The size would be around...bigger then the x wing...smaller then the falcon..:)

    I imagine you will turn a lot of heads. I would try to light it up for the trip. It might be hard to do, but it would be worth it. Make a couple of stops and watch the crowds grow!! :)

    wHAAA :)..

    ok...i'm home of the scariest rides home...
    Every bump in the road the x-wing moved a lot..
    Had to stop twice for securing that he wouldn't turn in corners i took.

    And i noticed serval headturns in cars that passed me :)


    So this project is complete..
    Only thing i have to do is to install the cables at the arduino..
    But that is something for when it rains.
