Whats up gang, I don’t know if anyone else out there is in to building models, but if you are read on.
So I found this nerd treasure for 25 cents at a yard sale.
Oh Yeah! Return of the Jedi version X-Wing Fighter model kit. It was partially built (incorrectly) but hey a bargains a bargain even though I had not assembled a model kit since I was a mere Padawan.
Funny thing is after I bought it, I packed it away for years and forgot about it. Hey it happens.
Anywhoo, two years ago I was going through some old boxes and their it was. So hey why not build it right?
So after, disassembling the incorrect parts of the build, rebuilding the model, patching the holes left from dis-assembly and slapping acrylic white house paint(all I had lol)and a few old bottles of Testors acrylic, decals and a clear coat this was the result.
After I finished the build I had an overwhelming urge to build another kit, and then another. I find building replicas of the pop culture icons I love to be really rewarding and if you are looking for a new hobby to get into, there are worse ways to spend your time.
Peace and May the Force Be With You (Like I wasn’t going to say it)
