Studio X-Wing Squadron Builds – WIP – by Marc Elkins

A few years ago I had purchased several studio X-wing Kits from MSLZ22 Models, and then also received a studio X-Wing variation from Poseidon Young. While the first MSLZ22 kit I had was built to be RED 5 (SEEN HERE), (accurate to the studio model), the second kit was built by R.L. Bleecker (before his retirement) to be RED Leader(SEEN HERE), (also accurate to the studio model). I have had several fantastic X-Wing studio builds come through the Modeler Magic Gallery which now reside in other collections around the world. I am now having Marc build the remaining squadron as we know them to be from Star Wars – A New Hope! The MSLZ22 V3 Kits are outstanding and will be done as Red2, Red3, Red4 and Red6. The Poseidon Young kit will be built as Blue 12 (Red 12). All will be as accurate as they can be from actual photos of the models during there existence. Marc is doing a wonderful job with the type of build weathering I require for realism in a build, but that does not take away from accuracy. You will see what I mean as he progresses.

See the below the WIP photos on how to get your own Studio X-Wing Kit!
