I really love that off-white light green panel. Nice little detail ;)

An excellent build, particularly like the weathering

Cheers fellas  :)

Here are the wip shots of the T-16 that was done ages ago. It was drawn in cad and cut from 0.5 acrylic and then layered up to allow for the panel lines etc. Serious gubbins work on the engine and underneath.

It isn't an exact replica of the film version as I wanted a personalised one used by a engine jockey in the Beggars Canyon races. The wings fold though so it can 'land' (although how it does that is still debatable).

What a great ship, shame it was not highlighted more in the movie.  The Star Wars radio play made it really soar.

As always, I love the model.

What sort of glue do you use when building these creations?

Thanks gents  :)

What sort of glue do you use when building these creations?

Basically Plastic Weld for plastics (acrylic and styrene etc) and super glue for the other stuff. I’ll occasionally use a bit of wood glue but not often.
