This is the building of the x wing star fighter by UHU02.
So far I have built the wing frame.
looks like you're off to a good start.
It's looking great!
Oh yes! I'd love to see a detailed build thread! Welcome to the forum and go for it!
You are off to a really good start!!!
I will be following this thread closely!!!
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!
YES another x wing....and its an UHU02 one
this i am going to follow..
going great i see.
Upper wings done now.
Folding wings made of folded paper... Love it! ::
Subscribed and keeping close track! :mrgreen:
Bottom wings completed
Looking good but be careful on the wings. The surfaces are either too thin stock or have warped for some reason. The framework is so perfect, I'd be tempted to bring the skinning up to the same standard. Tough model. Your framework looked like a factory product!
Looks great as all UHU staff does.
I am building the UHU viper mark II - very challanging - very small parts.
I am looking forward seeing the process of this build. As far as I can see perfekt work up to now.
Added front part
You are making good progress on this build.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!
hi, it looks great but wobbly....is the paper weight not thin?
Pheebs, I thik you needs to move to thicker stock or the model will really begin to start warping and will be unbuildable, but I could be wrong, I hope I am actually. Other than the paper thickness, the parts fitment is excelllent.
Yeah I am only using normal printer paper at the moment because I don't have thicker paper.
What type of paper is it best to use ?
Small parts added
i use very much cardboard from kellogs boxes..
thinner cardboad from tea-boxes..and glue the prints on it..
for me it works...
i don't know with you scale if that would work...but you could try it.
But you are doing such a great job...it looks great!
My paper of choice is 170gsm (glossy, sometimes). For some pieces like formers, or whatever needs some stiffness, 230gsm. Whenever I need anything more than that, I laminate the paper onto another with same or heavier grammature, and voilà!
I use A4 and A3 sizes, the latter when I want to do something big or some rescaling (up or down).
