My son's X-wing Fighter

Recommended Posts

My nine year old son Drew wanted you all to see his finished MPC X-wing. He's utterly obsessed with Star Wars and is eagerly awaiting the new moive; he's already watched the trailer five times!

He did the airbrushing with minor help, and used a wash for the first time on this one. He did all the hand painted detail work himself. He even used Future for the decal gloss coat. Let me just say I was NOWHERE near this when I was his age, that's for sure.

There was a nice in-flight clear stand for it, but somehow the "Dark Side" of the force made it collapse. We think... :P

Well done Drew! It loks great the decals are well done and the details pop out. Don't worry about the stand - get a small piece of wood, some brass tubing and ask you Dad how to use a drill. It will be flying in no time!

How about a Tie fighter next?

:P

:cheers: 9 years old!

All I got to say is WOW!!! I still can't come anywhere near this level, and I've worked on about 20 kits.

Sweet work, Drew! :cheers:

Excellent work! I don't know about the X-Wing, but MPC's AT-AT is a very difficult kit fit-wise, which makes this result even more impressive.

Drew, that is excellent work. I built an AMT X-Wing when I was about 16, it wasn't anything near as nice as yours. Fantastic job! Star Wars rocks :wave:
