MOTY 2017 Entry BTL-S3 Attack Fighter/Bomber
BTL-S3 Y-Wing Attack Fighter/Bomber – Grey Leader (ROTJ)
This is the 1:72 scale Fine Molds kit, scratch/converted to the two-seater S3 version, I built it when the kit came out in 2007. I used one Studio Starforge figure to go with the kit figure. Grey Leader’s fighter wasn’t shown on screen – I airbrushed my own markings, scratch built two different exhaust vanes for the engines and lit them and the Droid’s dome with simple GoW Bulbs. I wanted to model my impression of Rebel Ace Pilot Colonel Horton Salm of the Expanded Universe.
