You only need one. Amiright? It's derpy, it's expensive, it's very good in the right hands.

To be honest, I've only fielded this ship one time and it got stomped right away. I had maybe 10 games under my belt, so I really didn't know what I was doing. Time to re-visit this one and give it a fair shake.

Let's do this:

Not so derpy now, are we? :)

Interesting mods in the OP. I'm working on a 3D model for Star Citizen that I'll be modifying to 3D print in 1/270 scale for X-wing.

I've always loved the ship, but WOW, WEG and the EGVV really did a hack job on the lore.

Nice. I wish that the effects crews had given some thought into how the ID tabs actually work on the TFA X-wings. Would have liked to make use of that for my own E-wing (conceptualized as a New Canon spin with new Lore). Instead I went with the six tabs/double tabs from the classic X-wing.

After testing the idea on my Firespray and Z-95s, I tried my hand at recreating the E-Wing from the cover of X-Wing: Mercy Kill.  While the book was overall "meh" for me, I loved the camouflaged E-Wing on the cover (which sadly wasn't really in the book).  Here's my attempt at it:

There aren't really any parts to buy... except for the standard E-wings themselves.

 

As you can see in my previous post, the wings and the boxes are built from scratch, using plasticcard 1mm thick and some smaller plastic strips.

Look for Evergreen Scale Models Strip Styrene. Those plastic strips are available in every possible size and thickness. Besides that, you need some Revell plastic glue, a steel ruler suited for cutting, a cutting mat and a good cutter.

 

Here are some more pics of the conversion process:

Cut off everything you want to rebuild.

The new wings are attached, but details are still in progress.

The finished conversion. Lasers and engines are being reused.

 

The white parts are the scratchbuilt parts of the conversion. Sorry I can't provide better pictures as it is really difficult to take good photos of the whities.
