As I build this X-Wing, I’ve noticed that there’s a lot of areas that are just screaming for additional detail.
Missing from the aft section of the cockpit is the canopy actuators. This was easily remedied by re-purposing the speed brake actuators from a 1/32 Hasegawa F-86 kit.
Painting and Chipping
I started the tedious process of painting the fuselage. Humbrol Maskol is your best friend when it comes to replicating the chips paint of an X-Wing fighter.
In a bold move, I have switched to acrylic paints. Mostly due to Model Master carrying the old Floquil colors.
Here’s the nose and the canopy painted in “blue”.
The next steps are to get the windscreen/canopy painted the correct color. Revell really botched it when it came to the paint on this model!
Until next time, MTFBWY.
