M20 X-Wing


I've started working on a new X-wing drawing that is (hopefully) more accurate to the studio model. The size I've arrived at is a compromise between the incorrect cannon length and figures I found in some fantastic research threads over on The RPF. It's been a while since was researching, but I'll try to find links to them and post them here. Anyhow, here's what I have so far:

Image

The length is 13.4 meters. The incorrect cannon length of 12.5 meters is actually fairly close to the length of the fuselage by itself, which seems to be about 12.3 meters. So, like I said above, I compromised between the two and made the fuselage 12.5 meters in length.

Fantastic!

Great to see this ship getting the SWDA treatment. I am guessing that the M20 R2 will fit in the correct area?

I will certainly be following this thread. And yes theRPF, is a great sight for prop and models ... And all things movie.

Looks like a great start...

Re: M20 X-Wing


Thank you Kal emoticon.

Small update. I removed one of the detail lines I had on the aft section of the fuselage that made the drawing seem a little too busy. The small(ish) scale doesn't support a ton of detail on a ship this size.

I also started on the side view. The nose cone is taken from the pyro model design rather than the studio model. I think the full-size prop also had the same nose cone. Capturing the shape of the studio model's nose cone at this scale is a little difficult. The torpedo launcher will be shaded eventually when I start to color in the drawing, it's not going to stay a solid black blob.

That circle in the middle of the page is my start on the front view of the engines. Although they are the right diameter, at this scale they'll project above and below the fuselage a little too far, so I may end up dropping them 2 pixels in diameter.
