It’s starting to look a lot like X- Wing

It’s nice to have this break from CGI and writing to build a model, especially one like this.

I should have all the parts on today. Engines are lighted. Cockpit lighting next. Notice the engine fin mounts that were broken off. I replaced them with new ones fashioned from styrene.

As you can see I came up with this nifty magnet solution to having access to the internal electronics via removing wings if I ever need to and for painting.

George keeps getting more and more done on the Iron Giant.

Studio Scale X-Wing

I have had this for awhile now and thought it would make a nice build. I just started yesterday and got about three hours into it.

Progress so far in pictures.

More shop fun

Working on the “Iron Giant” screw and I should finish today. Soldered up the circuit board and painted the parts. Next I’ll preen the paint job and install the electronics.

Ear molds opened up easy and came out great! Will run silicone ears Monday.

I am now caught up on all customer projects at long last and back to the “Iron Giant” and also that studio scale X-Wing. Its been along time since I could work on my own projects.

Meanwhile I am working on a new feature length movie script called, “A Boy and His Rocket”. Sci-Fi space movie, fun, and family oriented with a strong message that we should get off our sorry complaining asses and explore space!

More on that later.
