Looks good! I'll have to try one of these. The X-wing is one of my favourite SF vehicle designs.
Yes you should try this x wing..
it's one of the best around...
AND offcourse one of the greatest spaceships EVER ...(my opinion)
I have almost complete the back engines.....almost
damn a big network shutdown at work
so 1 x wing pilot helmet made....
and DAMN that's hard this small.
That is a BEAUTIFUL helmet. Your work is simply AMAZING!!!
So what prop room did you get the helmet from and where did you get such large tweezers?
You know that it was very hard to find those XXXXXL tweezers.. :-D
This is the link to the pilot i am trying to build.
The helmet looks nice..
Now the body
I know the guy who has this website. He does AWSOME work.
I am glad to see that you are going to make the pilot as well. godd choice.
I look forward to seeing it.
Keep up the GREAT work.
i first printed the pilot on A4 but that's small.....even tweezers wouldn't work..
i don't know how your friend does it....respect.
This figure is printed on A1...and for me it's to small..
but it looks nice enough for me..
i hope i can make the arms and body...
because as close as the pictures you will never come again..the ship when everything goes well will be hung to the ceiling...
And then everything looks great at a distance :-D
And i think i go looking for some real glasses instead of a yellow sheet.
Man, that is the most incredible head! That's really impressive. You never cease to amaze me. That is really awesome!!
thanks...the head is really super..
The body without the details is a little less..
But i hope with the details it will fit will look great.
But the main part.. i have a figure for my x wing YEAH....:-D
And from the display-distance you will only see the head...
totally awesome mate:thumb:
The body really has the look of an armature. You could easily dress it up if you think you need too. The body looks like an armature, you could easily add onto it, but depending on how you mount the craft, it might not be worth it because you won't see it anyways. Great job, great workmanship!
Thanks for the supporting words..
I want to give the pilot his black belt and his white vest.
Then he is ready to fly..
Wow! This has to be one of the biggest X-Wing fighters ever! I saw there were some questions of what scale it was earlier in the thread. The original is 1/48, so printed on A1 rather than A4 it would, in fact, be 1/12 scale. That's giant!
Impressive work! looks like it's going to be huge!:thumb:
I like the addition of the pilot (even if it does need a little work). It definitely finishes the model.
And now?..is the pilot ready..
I think that this is it.
I thought about the gloves...but i think i don't do them.
i changed the visor for a real one
also i found the tubes for attaching the engine parts..front and back.
i hope they work..
the backside of the engines are attached to the front engines..
My Father had a nice glasfiber-tube which fits great..thanks Dad
Also every engine has 4 cables for 2 leds each..
I used CAT6 network cables they are thin..and work great for the LEDS. (i hope)
And i hope i get the effect i want.
Ok today the arduino arrived, incl 20 leds..
Now starts my wonderful journey into the world of programming
Support, support, SUPPORT!!!!!:thumb:
Excellent, Looking forward to seeing this "turn on"!
