Will you share instructions, or do you free-hand them?

I design these with a mix of digital programs and messing around at the table with my collection. They hardly have any parts in them, so I suspect a parts list and exploded view will suffice. Stay tuned...

There's a pre-X-Wing game with little lego microship like this isn't there.  I nearly got into the mech version but sourcing all the little fiddly bits to make the mechs was too much faff.

That image was posted in 2017.  Look like any Star Wars thing you can think of?  Maybe from a cartoon made after 2017?

I would be interested in all that as well as info about the program you use! These are frankly amazing. I’m going to have to build some of these with the kids...

Lego Digital Designer is Lego's own program. The interface is straightforward, though support is limited (does not update frequently; missing certain old and very new parts). My preferred program.

Alternatively, Stud.io is very powerful and has a full selection of parts (and Bricklink integration), though it definitely suffers from the "too many buttons" effect of Photoshop.

@QQMoore I’ve been working on some builds of these the last couple days. I’ll have to post pics. These are awesome! But I’m wondering if you could show a more detailed picture of the U-Wing’s back end & underside? Having trouble rigging up something that doesn’t feel excessively chonky while working around the hinges.

You're in luck! I made full instructions:

Wow that’s AWESOME! And apparently online Pick A Brick is a thing! Very cool—I’d love to see more of these!!

(Looks like 92582 is maybe not on PAB... would you just substitute another 33909?)

I usually order from Bricklink. I designed this model to use "modern" parts so it'd be easier to source. You can substitute 33909 for 92582, but the wings will open too far. If you have 2452 or 21445 you can subtitute that for the yellow 1x2 plate to act as a stop for the wings:
