On the bench: 1:48 bandai’s x wing


Wanted to work a bit on weathering, so I restarted the “moving edition” x wing from bandai. This can be considered an upgrade to the proshop light and sound x wing from AMT/ertl, which although was bigger, it was very inaccurate and to be honest I don’t have the electrician’s skills to wire the thing up. Here the electronics are wired up and you just need to thread the wires properly. I thought I may never build the proshop after this so I wanted to do a quick build on it, but I just couldn’t stomach all the soldering!

The bandai version is good, but personally the color division on the different pieces is a pain to work with, and they create big and deep panel lines. But that’s a minor complaint as the kit is a joy to build.
