B-Wing Fighter Murphs Models

B-wing fighter Star Wars
Today I finished the B-Wing Fighter from Murph's Models. It's a free model, but I've modified it a bit. The cockpit is usually only printed. I designed the seat, on-board instruments, etc. myself. The canopy is made of a blister pack which I deep-drawn with a hairdryer and a self-made shape. Wings can be folded and the cockpit adapts to the situation as the fighter rolls. Here are some pictures:

Great work on the build and it definitely looks better with a cockpit.

Great ship, great design and great model ... and of course a great build

Well done! I always enjoyed this ship because of the unconventional shape.

Wow, very impressive!

Agree that the cockpit makes the model.

Looks like a very roomy cockpit if pilot is on short side.Nice model.

Did you add extra weathering on model or that's lights and shadows playing tricks?

Thanks! Its just the light and shadow. Some parts are also additionally glued on the surface of the wings.

Will you be offering the cockpit details as an add-on pack for the model?

Hi,
the whole cockpit inside is scratch built. The individual parts (seat, switches, etc.) were adapted to the housing. I made a mold for the cockpit window. Then I built the entire cockpit twice to cut out a template for the pulpit. I can only recommend the trick with the small magnets, so you can cut lengthways directly on the template. I made no templates.
