X-Wing "Red 4" - Building the wings

The wings of the Hero models built by ILM were made from a layer of plexi (top) and a layer of styrene (inner wings plates). They were hollow. I just build mines like that, using the original kitparts to detail them. Thanks to Kevin for the Holgate and Reynolds brick pattern sheet !

 

The wing plates

I built the wings from plexi and styrene plate. I added brass U-channels to make them stronger. Then I added all the little chips which are accurate to the pyro models.

The intakes

The intakes are made from vintage 1/144 Airfix Saturn V rocket. There are 2 of those parts in a kit, but there are different. On Red 4, the four cans were identical so I had to buy 4 kits. I did the plating with vinyl tape.

The engines

I built a master pattern for a half engine. I molded then did cast them in resin. It means 8 halves for the 4 engines. They are made from 1/32 F4 Phantom and some other bits.

The cannons

.

The bodies of the cannons are made from plastic tubing. The plating is vynil tape. The barrels are brass tubing. I used the original heatsinks and 1/15 Hummel and 1/72 Sherman bits to detail them.
