Henry Wayne's Y-Wing entry in the Starfighter Contest

Starship Modeler Starfighter Contest 


Rebel Y-Wing

By Henry Wayne

The Y-wing was built using photos from the movie that have appeared in different publications. It is basically made from a few of the same kits that constructed the originals that appeared in Star Wars: A New Hope: two Airfix Saturn V rocket kits, old Leggs containers, and a Tamiya Panther tank kit, to name a few.

The main section is a frame with sheet plastic applied. Then hundreds of bits of models, Plastruct tubing, and anything I could find make up the detailing. I vacuformed the cockpit and scratchbuilt an interior. The pilot came from a Snowspeeder model.

The kit is about the same size as the movie original and has a mounting post located in the bottom.
