Star Wars T-70 X-Wing Model Replica!

At this year’s Wondercon, we check out the new prototype of the T-70 X-Wing made for eFX collectibles. Modelmaker Steve Neisen walks us through how he built this replica in “studio scale”, even though The Force Awakens only featured computer generated ships on screen. From the articulating S-foils to the weathered detail, this model looks great!

  1. Hmm, wonder why die-cast on the AT-ST? Seems like a great way to ratchet up the price I guess (and sell fewer units). I’d be happy enough with more studio scale model kits to build! Though my DeAgostini Millennium Falcon doesn’t exactly take up a small amount of space…

  2. Fascinating to learn how things have changed. Not so much kit bashing anymore i guess? I Kind of want to visit a Chinese toy factory… I imagine some cross of “Factory Girls” by Leslie Chiang and old blogs about Kenner when it was in Ohio. Maybe not the best timing now but who knows the future?
