Bandai 1/72 Y-Wing
This is the 1/72 Y-Wing from Bandai. It is very good kit but so far the first one i wouldn’t give to a kid. There is loads of piping it is finicky and fragile. This has taken the longest of any Bandai I have done. Most of the bast build was a fantastic fit. Some of the pipes were time consuming and a little frustrating. I changed up the colours some to be a little different. Then did some weathering to the base ship and pipes. I didn’t want it falling apart but the Rebels rarely had new ships and had to keep what they had in operation for as long as possible. It comes with two pilots. One in the traditional flightsuit and the guys from Return of the Jedi. I had considered doing two but not sure I would now. As its a hefty build time and there are other projects capturing my attention. But I am glad to have built it.
