MarioMaker – (HUGE) 1/17 Dynamic Digital Creations – Star Wars T-70 X-Wing

This is a Tony Celliers Dynamic Digital Creations 1/17 T-70 X-Wing kit. My initial reaction reviewing the build doc was that it was going to be a tough build, but once I started the build, it turned out to be the opposite. Fact is, there aren’t really that many parts to the kit and the build is quite fun and not complicated. Kit has resin castings as well as 3D printed parts. The wings and interior wing mechanism is 3D printed. The fuselage section was made from two parts top and two bottoms, and I wanted everything to blend in so filler was used. I didn’t like the nose “cone” detail because it seem too large so I used the disc sander to shave it down closer to the fuselage profile. The Hobby stores were closed due to the virus so I went to Home Depot to buy off the shelf spray can primer and paints. While I followed the paint scheme from the movie, I didn’t bother to follow the colors exactly to the movie, especially in the case of the pilot which was something I purchased from Falcon 3D. The Small paint details were airbrushed with Tamiya and the bulk of the weathering was done with budget oil paints. Prismacolor pencils were also used to “paint” weather streaks. I didn’t want X WING FIGHTER on the base so I filled it. Also, I find the base too small a footprint to support the ship which is heavy, so I went to the plastic store scrap bin to buy a larger base. This doubled the thickness allowing the aluminum rod to have more depth to insert into. Overall, it was a fun kit to build and highly recommended.
Thanks and Best!
