Hi Loz, "ad-verbatim" :think: that's not a real word :) there is "verbatim" which means to follow exactly word by word :) I think you may mean "step by step"
It's my new years REVOLOTION :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

Ok well as promised here is my build dairy of the UCS Y Wing

High res instructions within the booklet

As per the norm we have a selection of new elements in new colours.

The central body structure coming together - you can see the position where the Y wing rests on the supplied stand

ImageDSC00014 by Lawrence Glendinning, on Flickr

Yes everything is truly awesome (Emmett agrees) there is a lot of modular steps on this build which adds to all the 'gribbling'

ImageDSC00014 by Lawrence Glendinning, on Flickr

ImageDSC00017 by Lawrence Glendinning, on Flickr

Some shiny new side pieces allocated to the build

ImageDSC00018 by Lawrence Glendinning, on Flickr

ImageDSC00020 by Lawrence Glendinning, on Flickr

You can start to see the level of detailing appearing on the build

ImageDSC00021 by Lawrence Glendinning, on Flickr

This is the action feature of the Y wing- the mechanism to rotate the gun on top of the cockpit

Some interesting uses of elements to make the exposed conduits and pipes
