Some time ago I decided to challenge myself to build a model in 40 hours or less. I picked the AMT Pro Shop X-Wing Fighter kit, fully aware of what I was getting myself into. The kit has… issues, to put it kindly. I was determined to do a basic “box stock” build and put all my energy into the paint and weathering application. I did not use any of the kit’s decals. All markings were painted on. I came in just under 40 hours with the results as you see here.
