Model Kit: Working on Bandai Y-Wing part #3
Here's some more progress on the 1/72 scale Y-Wing model, with the 1/72 R5 astromech, and a Micro Machines rebel pilot. I quite like how the micro machines scale figures look next to the 1/72 scale model kits. It was really difficult with some of the pipe / cable pieces on the model, and in the end I decided I would be happy attaching as many as I could, but not worry if some of the tiny pieces broke along the way, since the Original Trilogy Y-Wings were supposed to be old / run-down vehicles. I think I only snapped around five or six of the pipes, so I still got dozens of them attached and I love the detail of the model so far.
