    Well this is the ARC-170 by Julius Perdana from Paper-replika.
    Its a nice model, a little bit complicated specially the engines. I had a problem when i finished. The wings kept falling dawn with time. Every day or two i had to turn the model over so the wings came back to the original position and then turn it over an so. Consider that if some one decide to do this one.




    Maybe some day i'll try to find a solution. Right now it's in a box until the display cabinet its done.




    I finished this one in October 2009

    Opinions... anyone??

    it looks like a decent build.
    Nice straight wings.
    great engines with enough detail.

    And it's star wars :)

    Where are you working on at the moment?

    Great build! :thumb:

    As for the sagging wings try to attach a little support strut to them. Maybe a small beam with a triangular cross-section or small cardboard triangles attached under the wing where the wing connects to the main fuselage could help. You could colour them so that it looks like they are part of the fuselage.

    And welcome to zealot! :wave:

    in my xwing i used corrogated cardboard inside the wings..
    but look that carboard sits in the correct direction.

    Excellent job. I remember those engines were a pain in the butt to build.

    I have the .pdf files for this ship, but it looks very intimidating! :) I am working on some easier models, first. YOUR build is very beautiful.
