Large scale X-Wing

Saturday, 26 September 2015 by

The second of James Cherry’s models that we are showcasing is this X-Wing Starfighter ‘Red 5’. Although LEGO has made two large-scale ‘Ultimate Collector’s Series’ versions of this iconic Star Wars craft, James felt he could do better. The resultant model is 78cm x 54cm (or 99 studs x 68 studs) making it about 1/16 scale.
