In parallel with the oversize playpal car, mentioned elsewhere, I have also been building one of John's amazing X-wing fighters. Being relatively new to both bandsaw and scroll saw, I struggled to accurately reproduce four identical wings, so a fair bit of sanding was required! I used oak, reclaimed from a 40mm kitchen worktop that I recently replaced, for all the components except the dowels. I really enjoyed this one, although I have yet to tackle the transporter! The final 2 pictures were taken after giving the model a coat of Danish Oil.
I will now have to build another one, as my grandson wants a painted version and I like the oiled oak one!

Well done, Tom, well done.

It looks fabulous. I'm working on one now and made the wings out of 2X4s. I'm leaving on a trip in 2 days time and will be gone for a while.

Thanks for sharing.
