WIP - Fine Mold 1/48 X-Wing - Part 1

Inspired by DC23 1/72 X-Wing fighter, I dug up my 1/48 X-Wing fighter from my store and started a quick snap fit of the kit. I discovered quite a few sink marks on the kit, so it's probably going to take some time to remove the sink marks and redo the panel lines. Overall fitting for the kit is pretty good.

Trying out a new type of putty for this kit. SSP-HG. This putty is mostly use for sculpting and scratch building. It's not very popular in Singapore because of the cost (abt S$30). I am trying it out, because it will not sink as it dries like the Tamiya basic putty and it is fairly easy to shave and sand (Like sanding resin material).

A snap fit of the kit, plenty of puttying and sanding ahead.

To be continued.


  1. Woot! Iwant this kit man! btw, thanks I saw my name up there. :)

  2. Well It's your 1/72 X-Wing build that trigger my impulse to start this build. Still have a 1/72 Y-wing, 1/72 X-Wing and a Snow speeder to complete. More to come.
