Y-Wing

 

ABOUT:

Since I first saw Star Wars as a kid, I have always loved the series. The set and prop designs are still some of the most prolific and iconic images in all of film. My favorite ship was always the Y-Wing. I loved the odd shape and the little details everywhere. I wanted to build one for some time and finally felt my skills had progressed to where I could do the ship justice.

 

BUILD:
For the most part the build did not provide many unique challenges. the hardest part was all the little details which were very time consuming and took a good deal of patience. I ended up using bits of wire for the tubing and hosing on the model and some dowel rods for the engine supports. I also used some plastic putty for the engine domes. Other than that everything you see here is paper. The paint job was a blast and I always love weathering so I really took my time to make sure it really popped.
