Default DeAgostinin 1/18th Scale X-Wing Fighter Partwork Sort Of WIP *DONE*

Greetings all!
Not a full WIP as such, there are more than just a few build blogs/vlogs out there of the whole deal.
This is covering the mods i'm doing to this one, with a bit of assembly hoo-ha here and there. Client build by the way.

So to business...
At this time of keyboard pounding, I have all the assembly work done.
Next task is the surface clear up/detailing and full repaint.
Measures 29 & 1/4" or 718mm long.

But stepping back to when I had up to issue 55 of this bad motor scooter, it started with the top engine detailing.

This is the engine just assembled as stock.



Could use a little extra here and there so it was done.





The covers also needed a bit of work so the engine detail can be seen. So panels chopped off and new ones 3D printed, magnetically attached.





Both exterior and interior got some work done.





Interior paint and dirt done.



Put together for a look see.





At this point, I had enough parts to assemble three of the wings.







The laser cannons had LEDs and fiberoptic supplied but the FO that DeAgo sent was rubbish so the got replaced.
Sheathed decent quality 2mm FO got fitted on and tested.





All good thusfar.
So three wings, the cannon barrels, nose and front fuselage frame dealt with.



After a brief spell of no deliveries, got enough parts together to get all four wings done, detailed the other top wing engine
the same as the first and get the guts of the thing all together.
Lighting and wing open/close tested out and found to be okedoke.











Did the R2 unit up as well, some extra paint and wash didn't go amiss.
He's fitted with a LED as standard and the head will connect to the supplied motor drive to rotate it.



So that got me a fair way in but there was a break due to logistical problems, the lockdown, brexit etc. and so on ad absurdum.
More fun and games to come in the next post

Default Re: DeAgostinin 1/18th Scale X-Wing Fighter Partwork Sort Of WIP

So with the above lot sorted and the long wait for new delivers over with, leaping ahead more than a few months got me to the next pile of bits.



Some part assembly with a little bit of paint and plenty of dirt weathering to the internal detail removable parts.
No idea if ther client really want's these but part of the deal and a paint/weathring excercise so all good.

Something the magazine blurb called the acceleration compensator...I just call it a 'thingy'



Clips in here.





The proton torpedo rack.



Magnetically attached here.





Droid strip and hyperdrive looks like this. Oh the strip has been painted in Tamya AS-20 Insignia White.
That will be the base colour for the repaint.





In place and magnetic/slot secured cover on.





Stock coockpit is just pretty poor so got the Falcon 3D Parts upgrade and pilot figure for it and it's very well detailed.









So removed the main cockpit part from the support material, cleaned up and photo etch attached.





Flat black base and several coats in varying shades of grey, dry brushed on.





Panel decals in place.





And even more in the next post!

Default Re: DeAgostinin 1/18th Scale X-Wing Fighter Partwork Sort Of WIP

Onward!

Screens in the front just had a clear part but me being me...
A couple of decals drawn and printed, the clear bit shaved down in thickness just a smidge and it was done.



Fitted and a LED torch assited look see.





Upgrade supplied and stock cockpit greeblies painted and attached.





Pilot figure cleaned up and ready for paint.



Paint was done!
Helmet decals came with the upgrade set I am thankful to say.
Added the helmet mike and wire.







Joystick sorted and figure in seat.



Stock cockpit lighting setup wasn't great.



So did some lightboxing on the cockpit main part.



The LEDs are supposed to shine directly up which caused hot spots, a no-no in my book, so the lightbox gig made then shine mostly indirect or at a distance from the panels.
The directions as indicated by the red arrows.



Much better even lighting over the whole thing.



Because of the light boxing, some lump removal from the cockpit bucket required.
From this...



To this...



All this worked out nicely and the last of the current pics in the next post

Outward and onward!

Cockpit canopy hydraulic rams added.



Time for the dry fit dress rehersal of the cockpit.









Yep!
Stock canopy ram arms fitted and they work just nicely.





The last of the parts arrived so fuselage plating, greeblies and push fit landing gear built/fitted as appropriate.
A look round as it were.









Lastly, a very rough youtube vid of the working features as i've been building this.





And that's it up to date.
Much faffing about still to be done but that's for later.
Take care out there now gang!

The modelwork is so amazing, I can forgive the music in that video.

Kidding! I kid!



Was there a "dark room, cockpit lights on" shot in that video? Can't wait for that...

Default Re: DeAgostinin 1/18th Scale X-Wing Fighter Partwork Sort Of WIP

Cheers muchly SF, we shall see about the 'in the dark' lighting shot at some point mate



Well things are still a going on, started on the front fuselage reworking.
The front fuz 'as is'



Some wet sanding after the Aves filling the panel gaps had cured. A bit of scribing and then plenty of Sheet styrene chips and bits got thrown at it.
Along with shallow drill holes for plating fasteners.





Used the big 5 foot X-Wing model built for ROTJ as inspiration for the detailing and that's as good as any.





The inevitable and necessary primer for a look see.







A half decent start methinks, time to wind this lark out to the rest of the thing.

A small bit of modding on the stock switch and stand cover.
Made a hole for the yet to be made 'In flight' stand and detailed it up a bit, added the cut out notches which the studio X-Wings sem to have.



Scratch built another cover plate from heat formed styrene. This is for the 'gear down' version should it be required.
Mangetically attached like the stock plate.



More to come at some point!

I live vicariously through Raytheon -- that is awesome work.

Panel lines look a wee bit chonky (?), but that's on DeAgostini, not you) --
your build-up has pushed this to the top of my "want" list...

Many thanks SF, just another plod along but getting it done as best I can.


They are but nature of the beast and the fill in/clean off/rescribe is most certainly not in the bloody budget for this one!
Like the Falcon they did, it's a decent basis to start from so problems (of which there are quite a few) aside, it'll do.

Default Re: DeAgostinin 1/18th Scale X-Wing Fighter Partwork Sort Of WIP

Nay worries SF and ya welcome mate!


And there's more!

A bit of surface detail to deal with. The five raised circular thingies.



Studio Model here. You can see the two brass/gold things, they were the power sockets for the models.



A quick mesh and print whipped up. Not strictly accurate but they'll do for this gig.



Offending lumps removed.



Replacements fitted. Decided to do things a little different because why not.



Did the ones on the other side a straight swap and they will do.



A bit of masking and a coat of primer/surface fault finder done.



A few putty messups to take care of but not too shabby.







Did the drill shallow holes to represent panel fixing like thingies on all the wings.



A quick squirt of primer to the cover plate and like what i'm seeing overall.



More on this a bit later.

Well got to where I wanted it to be at days end.
White-ish coats applied so now that can cure fully overnight.















So the different coloured panels up next, always a laugh riot.

If I could get the proper geometry for a cockpit "chair and walls," plus the X-Wing pilot costume, I'd 3D scan myself in a seated position, in costume, print myself in 1/18th scale, and turn the knob on a custom paintjob for the X-Wing up to "11"...

Looks OK. Let me know when you start adding some detailing.
