If you’re planning on building the Revell X-Wing and using a pilot figure, the Falcon 3D Parts pilot is a must for your build. As the company name suggests, this is a 3D printed replacement pilot figure. The resolution in the figure is fantastic. If I did know better, I would think it was a cast resin part.

The helmet insignia is from the 1/48 Bandai Snowspeeder kit decal sheet. Also from the Bandai sheet is the red stripe down the center of the helmet. This decal also included the black hashmarks at the forward raised area. The decals were a real lifesaver as ther is no way to paint these markings.

Now that school is over, I’ve picked this up again.

I made a trip to my local Hobbytown USA and picked up some brass tube to support the model in an in flight configuration.

I ended up adding doublers to the inside upper half of the fuselage to reinforce the inner tube support.

The cockpit needs a lot of work! The pilot figure is vinyl and the head is oversized and just doesn’t look the part. 3d Falcon Parts will have to come to the rescue here.

There’s a lot of detail lacking on the side consoles and in the aft cockpit. This is easily fixed with styrene and other greeblies from the spares box.
