Revell X-Wing snap kit...

Recommended Posts

I bought this kit for my nephew's birthday and he asked me to build it with him (he's six). The kit builds up nice but it looked very boring as is. I told my nephew I would take it home and weather it up for him.

There is a nice amount of detail on the kit and the weathering really makes it pop. I left the paint job as is out of the box. I didn't want to take the time to re-paint and I don't think the nephew really cares. He's happy and that's all that really matters....

The weathering looks great!

Does it come with the wooden base? It looks like wood in the pictures.

Nope. It does have optional landing gear parts, tho'.

Nice X-Wing!

Cheers,

The weathering really does make that kit pop.

Was it pre-painted out of the box, or did you do the paint scheme as well?

Nice weathering job! I did the same thing with my kit, and have another one sitting around. I'm thinking of taking before and after photos to show what the weathering does for it. Although my weathering skills are not as good as yours.

dmk0210, it does come pre-painted.
