31024 X-Wing

LIKES

This is my third and, in my opinion, most successful entry for the April 2018 Creator Contest. I tried to make it as close to an X-Wing from the movies as I could, except for the side view mirrors on the cockpit. That was unprecedentedly me.
(Note: I am an average Star Wars fan. If I get any terminology wrong, don't criticize, please)
The X-Wing features:
-Wings able to go from normal to attack formation
-4 engines, one on each wing
-Foldable landing gear
-A huge cap on the back, using the attachable wheel spokes
There are a few things wrong with this model, such as not being Minifigure compatible and the awkward paint job, but considering this is an alternate build and not a straight up MOC, I hope you will enjoy it anyway.
Please give any advice/feedback, and Happy Building!

    That is one cool X-Wing! I like how it is so recognizable with such few parts.

    I need to persuade my son to persuade my wife to hunt the Roaring Power Set on eBay… I have come across to many cool alternatives already.

    This is brilliant, and can definitely count as a official B model, if Lego we're willing to mix themes. Personally I think the colors look great, and it's not like the rebels have official colors or anything. It doesn't really feel like you were working with limited parts is what I'm trying to say. Way to go!

    I don't think anyone would mind the "awkward paint job", espacially since you are working with limited parts from the car.  Besides the color scheme looks great.

      Thanks, I thought people might say it was a "junkyard" style color theme. Glad to know you like it!

        I know one person here who will call it "Ratrod" :)

    Fantastic build!

    Maybe you should add the star wars tag, you could reach more people.

    Thanks for the advice from Turbo8702 and perbonde for helping me understand it!.

    Cool alternate!

    Instead of linking your bricksafe profile page, you can link to this MOC's bricksafe page and a slideshow of your pics will show up at the top of your MOCs page.

      I don't quite follow you. Can you tell me exactly how to do that, please?

        I think perbonde explained it better. If you still have questions feel free to ask though!

        Thank you Sammy. A piece of advice: If you copy/paste the link into Rebrickable on the 'Admin' tab, under 'More details URL', your pictures will show up on Rebrickable. You can also do it when you post the build. Per
to your account to add or reply to comments.
