why chase perfection. after looking for years for a minty white x-wing.

i came across this in a joblot. it has all its original decals and cockpit cover and quite yellowed. its landing gear was broken and r2d2 dome was very worn and wing mechanism wasnt working. i thought as all its decals were present and cockpit cover why not get her going.

a quick clean with some wetwipes a a rummage through my spare parts its got now got a good clean dome guns and landing gear wing mechanism working and is play and display worthy.

before and after shots below :)

Nice pick up Poncho, you got to love a bargain :wink:

Off to a pretty good start in 2019. I just picked up these three 41 backs that I needed. I hope to reach the half way point soon!
