Rejoice, fellow Lego nerds, because Mike Psiaki just sent me the instructions and a part list for the best Lego X-Wing model ever created. Yes, my friends, now you can build your own.
A while back you wrote a piece about my Lego x-wing model. I figured it might be of interest that I just completed “instructions” (I was too lazy to do any CAD, simply took extensive breakdown photographs) and a parts list. The parts list is a little different from what I show in the instructions (when I use a 1×2 tile and a 1×1 tile next to each other I wanted to use a 1×3 tile, so I list that in the inventory). Also, when I built the original thing I used a lot of parts in colors that I didn’t need to, so there could be some more simplification as well.
Suffice to say, it’s not perfect and it’s nowhere close to a real Lego set, but I think it will do.
It may not be perfect, but it is better than the real Lego sets—including the last 2012 model.
Then, go to Mike’s Brickshelf Gallery to see the construction steps. Have fun! [Thanks Mike!]
