Default Hasbro X Wing Upgrade Set

Seeing all the posts on forums regarding the Hasbro Falcon I thought I'd do one for the big X Wing they do.
I'm going to make a upgrade set for it to replace the wings, air intakes, engines and laser cannons.
Here is the work so far.









Finished another part for the X wing.
These go on the outside of the laser cannons. The actual kit part is on the left (from a Salzo x wing). I know its not 100% but it's close enough I think. It's made up of 13 individual parts.


Here it is with a bit of primer on



and a picture for size reference.



Just completed the laser canon for the Hasbro X Wing upgrade set.
Complete with 3d printed replica of the heatsink used on the real ones

Very, very nice! I'm surprised no one else has thought about an upgrade kit for this.

I found this heatsink on ebay (before I went the 3D printing route) and they turned up today so I had a bit of a fiddle with it just to see if my plan would've worked.



So after a bit of this


I ended up with this


It works as an alternative but now I dont know which I prefer



I know it's not screen accurate but it's my version. I might include both in the set.
Thoughts anyone ?

Well have to say it's very slick work so far Dean

As to which looks better, that's in the province of the builder in my humble opinion. I think both look the canines testicular so go with what works for your good self and leave the buyer with the option.
That said, I expect opinions as the set progresses will give you a good idea.

With the bits I'm doing for my one and a friends beastie, we are going for the 'close enough will be good enough' approach but that's just because it's for us alone.
