Hi,

For those of you that have already started this build.

I'm just about to get started on the X-Wing build and had a question relating to the R2 in the build.

Does his lighting bleed through, does his body/dome need blacking out inside at all? Same question for the engines and lasers too I guess!

There is some light bleed on the laser cannons, which on the official build diary does suggest painting them black on the inside. With regards to R2-D2, again there is some light bleed so I would suggest painting the inside first to stop this.

Regards
Mark

Thanks for the replies, I'll definitely paint the insides of the R2 unit and the cannons, looking forward to seeing your possible mod too!
