X wing Ships (Conversions)

A few weeks ago I bought a bulk load of X wing bits and bobs, some of the ships were work in progresses…they had been started but for one reason or another never finished. I think the original owner may have been attempting some pure Recon ships as armaments had been removed.  I decide to restore the weapons using bits from my 40 +year old  spares box!!! and completed the installation of magnets to the bases, and in some cases finished off the paint jobs.

We use some of these in the club, others have been obtained by club members.

Had some requests from the club for Millenium Falcons. We, and they couldn’t afford the real thing by FFG so I painted up 3 revell 1/241 scale Falcons and gave them all a set of edition 1 cards and dials and some large bases and pegs sourced from Ebay. They are only slightly smaller but with a superior paint job 😉

The kids were happy and thats all the counts….but they served to introduce them to their own X wing collecting, and I expect that Santa will be very busy in this region with boxes of x wing ships come the evening of the 24th.
