Star wars models

Recommended Posts

I had the AMT X-wing back in my younger days and I loved it (I got the stand to work too). It was built before my days of painting a model, so I would add battle damage to the kit by (carefully) taking a lighter near some areas of the plastic just long enough to brown the plastic (or in some cases, just enough to warp it a tiny bit). In retrospect that was rather ingenuitive of me for a 8 or 9 year old... wish I still had that degree of sideways thinking now!

The kit was long-since trashed. I'd love to build the AMT kit again sometime if I could ever find one. I liked the detail and size of it.

Jeremy, the AMT X-Wing had some re-releases back in the 90s ...

I even picked up the one with the circular disk stand ...

Shouldn't be to hard to find on ebay or in trade forums etc ...

Thank you to all who have responded. I have my MPC R2-D2 and C-3PO, Fine Molds X-Wing and Y- Wing ready to be built. I have to finish my Hasegawa 1/48 A-7E Corsair II first. Rob :thumbsup:

Here's my Fine Molds 1/48 X-Wing. I added some detail to the cockpit based on a photo I found in one of my son's Piano Music books. Replaced the lasers with brass tube, and painted most of the markings.
