But it has to be said that you can take the standard x-wing kit (9493 or 6212) and SNOT them by simply adding smooth panels all over the wings and some on the nose/fuselage, you can go a bit further by changing the nose tip and the built up wedge panels in front of the canopy (especially on 6212) for a few sloped smooth wedge bricks.
Just saying, it can be done, and the look is pretty good. I did it to my 6212 a while back just for fun and the change is dramatic. Didn't keep it like that but may do it again and post the pics.
I suspect LEGO don't do this with standards to both keep costs down and so it doesn't make the UCS's look less worthy of their price.
I mean, would you pay £200 ish for the UCS if you could get your standard to look anything like this?
i am struggling to find a way to reduce my comments so they will all fit on this page... absolutely awesome and cunning design. the fact that your design involves the snot technique is most impressive. perfection achieved...
to my knowledge no one has built one. that said it is possible, but it would likely be a military aircraft as it would be rather unstable and would need an experienced hand and a computer to guide it.
The MOC is very nicely done, even though you built an X-Wing, it still has your Style throughout the MOC. Though, I am confused about the last few Photos, why change the Background? The first Background was excellent, the Second was an strain on the eyes.
One of the best Lego X-Wings I've seen (and I've seen alot)! The "nose" design is what separates this from other designs and is very accurate! The SNOT wings are beautiful, as well. My only minor nitpick is the back of the ship should be hexagonal (easily fixed with some slope pieces) not square. Great work!
That is the best X-Wing I have ever seen. It seems so solid and the lack of studs is fantastic. When I first saw it, I didn't even think it was made of Lego. You've displayed a skill that is very, very difficult to master and rarely seen on this website. If you have a free moment, i would greatly appreciate any advice you could give me on my Flying Rhino.
Awesome, at first i thought that this was a very huge moc (thats usually how such perfect lines are made) Then I saw the minifig! Just a thought: How about a comparative shot of this one next to the set.
