Now you need to give it call sign!

I'm thinking maybe it could be blue leader. All of blue squadron was destroyed at scariff, so they had to replace it at some point right?

"Blue Leader" isn't a cool call sign though... I'll get back to you! ^_^

@Oberron Oh my goodness, how did you sculpt that? I have an ugly T-65 that I screwed up early on, & tried to repaint now 3 times. I tried stripping the paint off, but it didn't ever completely come off, just mostly, so a lot of the details are muddy. Making a mod like this would suit it perfectly.

Used waterweld epoxy (cheaper green stuff), an exacto knife, copper wire, superglue, and a dremel saw.

The WIP pictures while I was making it are posted here if you wanna look at them.

 

Sawed the back of the ship in half horizontal and carefully separated it from the cockpit. With the epoxy i made a ramp to angle the back half up then slowly built the flames on top of it. The pillars of flames poping out and the one with the wing blowing apart from the ship have copper wire inside of it and superglued to the wing to hold, carefuly masking over it with an exacto knife and using the blade to make the flames

Partisan X-Wing Repaint - Just "finished" this moments before posting here (so I'm sure I'll return to it several times for touch-ups before she's truly finished...)

 

I dunno what it is, but I love this X-Wing. It looks great!

Those look amazing, I need to see more pictures! Thank you for sharing. You're now my new best friend :D
Also, what colours did you use for those? I haven't been able to decide on which colours would match best, but these look pretty **** good!
