Instructions on how to build the new T-70 X-Wing from Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
I came up with the Lego build myself (MOC). Give building it a try! It took me a long while to figure out how to make the two engines splitting into four halves. The S-foil wing gimmick was even more confusing. Luckily, had the Hasbro toy as a reference. You’ll see it towards the end of the video.
Link me if you build one! I’d love to see it. Let’s build an squadron of these! If you have any suggestions on how to improve the stability comment below. I’m thinking of building Poe Dameron’s black X-Wing but Lego doesn’t make an orange rubber band. Sigh, first world issues.
Comment below if you have a question about a part you see that is unknown to you. The engines are made from grey visors, which might be a little hard to find.
It took much effort, but I’m super happy that I built, photographed, and uploaded this before The Force Awakens movie premiers. Yay.
Gosh, I love the profile of this thing – that cockpit curvature is spiffy. I should post a work-in-progress shot just to show how far this thing has come. Coming up with the engine split, the working S-foil wings, figuring out how to make the blue streak, and keeping this starfighter small was darn hard. It’s only 1x stud wide for the nose while still maintaining all the proper curves the X-wing is known for. Definitely no studs on top of this guy, san the BB-8 head sticking out. It was hard, but I’m proud of the finished product, and it’s super swooshable, as you can see in the beginning of the video. Enjoy!
