Steven Carricato’s Force Awaken’s Resistance X-Wing
The kit is the new, released Revell X wings from The Force Awakens. The first thing I did was carve out the seat and added my own pilot. The pilot is half of Anakin Naboo fighter legs and a 15 millimeter gaming figure that had Star Wars helmets. Next I drilled out the engine so I could light it with orange LEDs. Step 2 was drilling tiny holes for the mag wire to fit inside the fuselage. (Mag wire is the size of your hair ). Step 3, I drilled holes in the cockpit and added fiber optics. At the end of the fiber optics was one clear LED and a green LED for the navigation screen. Step 4, I wired it all to ear phone jack at the back of the fuselage. This will be the stand for the power supply. I then added extra detail on the engines and bits of squares all over the ship. I closed off the landing gear holes, for in flight mode. Then I airbrushed blue color to the bottom wings because the model comes pre-painted from the top but not on the bottom. Last weathering pastels and washes finished.
