Greetings!

I got my first 2 parts for the X-Wing Fighter subscription today so thought I would start a build thread.

First up, some of the equipment I will be using.

With the first 2 issues I am provided with a series guide:

and some blue prints:

I haven't had a chance to make a start yet but wanted to post an introduction to the build. I hope to get started soon.

Greetings!

Thanks for your good wishes Number1 and Casper.

Starting off with Issue 1 then. We have the Cockpit canopy, part of a laser cannon and some of R2-D2.

Image

Firstly the two parts of the canopy click together.

Image

Image

Image

It feels a little flimsy at the moment but will be more solid when the glazing has been applied and it is fitted to the hull.

Next come the barrel sections of a laser cannon. A small amount of glue was applied to hold the pieces together firmly.

Image

Finally for this stage R2-D2s dome had 3 projectors applied. One of these required a little glue.

Image

That finishes stage 1.

Stage 2 includes the cockpit base, more parts of a laser cannon and additional R2-D2 pieces.

Image

Starting with R2.

Image

These parts are pushed together.

Image

The laser generator includes an LED.

Image

Again all parts are pushed together.

Image

The cockpit base is set aside for now and that is stage 2 complete. The laser cannon and R2-D2 should be completed over the course of the next 2 issues.
