Superb work David!

Keep em coming!

PS Recently I was thinking how good it would be if there were 1/24 x-wing and TIE fighter kits available! Ah to dream!

Thanks again Russell, there will probably be a bit of a hiatus as my wife and I are looking for a new house a little further north from where we are right now, hoping to find something in the next month or two.

Nothing in styrene that I know of, and you're right it would be cool. IIRC, 1/24 is studio scale and there are several (expensive) resin ones available.

My pleasure, David

What scares me most about moving is moving all those models safely! So, Good luck with the move!

Do you know if any decent plans are available to be able scratch build an x-wing and Tie fighter in 1/24th?

No doubt, I'd just get a scratch build finished and an injection molded kit would be released!

I don't know, but the place I'd start my search is on the RPF site, https://www.therpf.com/ .

Great site that, David, but no luck there.

Not to worry, plenty to build in the stash

and the non pre-order price is even huger ! (If that even is a word )

Nah, an injection molded styrene 1/24 kit for around $200 would be much nicer (on the wallet too)
