Red Leader standing by...
I seem to have more red pieces than any other, and I wanted to attempt an X-Wing build, so decided that Red Leader should get a red ship. Unfortunately I don't have a rebel pilot minifig, so a Cody Clone trooper got the job.<br>
About this creation











It turned out ok, but has room for loads of improvement. The wings and engines specifically. I found it really difficult to get the brick-width wings on and sturdy enough to open and close. They do open and close thanks to the wheel on the back, but I prefer to keep them open.
The wings are relatively weak compared to the rest of the ship. I went through more wing configurations than I care to remember before settling for this. I'm still not happy with it though. Probably didn't help that I did this on the fly with no proper planning.

Thanks for looking.

Great details. I've never even seen some of these pieces before, like the droid head and the red cockpit frame behind the actual cockpit bubble. I especially like the red angle gears as turbine fans in the engines. You've given an impression of a very powerful X-wing.

That's a really cool X-Wing, I like the design a lot, especially the greebles on the rear end. Great job! :-))

Quoting T. Young Nice idea but Red Leader wasnt just a red X-Wing. It was a normal X-Wing that was flown by the leader of the flight. But still good X-Wing
Yeah I know Red Leader's ship was no different to the others. I was just making a play on the name and the fact that I have loads of red bricks to use. Thanks for the comments guys.
