Star Wars the Force Awakens

Stormtroopers aren’t the only ones that get a new look in Star Wars The Force Awakens.

X-Wing pilots get an updated helmet and flight suit in the new movie.

The actual X-Wing looks mostly the same as the classic model, though now we get to see it fight in-atmosphere too.

PlasterWars6 tested the ‘plaster’ of Star Wars rocketry in a way that hasn’t been done before. Model builders tested a scaled X-Wing and a Y-Wing both of which didn’t do better than a 100 ft of lift before the thrust ripped them apart.

Not surprisingly though  an A-Wing type cylindrical model made it a whole lot higher.

GREAT FUN to watch – we’ve got a montage video below – Enjoy!
