The Incom Z-95 Headhunter is a ship you see a lot in Star Wars EU.
It's basically an extremely primitive predecessor of the familiar
X-Wing. With no shields and only two laser cannons, however, it's more
like a Rebel version of a TIE Fighter. This LEGO is pretty simple, but
better than many of the Z-95's you see that are just rebuilt X-Wing
And just to make this page worth looking at, here is my slightly
improved version of LEGO's original Incom T-65 X-Wing set. As you can
see, I made the engines not look like they're constantly glowing, made
the nose slightly darker than the rest of the ship, put the distinctive
T-shape inside the engines, and made the blasters look more like the
real X-wing's. No huge changes, but good ones.
LEGO has produced a number of official X-Wing sets over the years.
The first one was grey, and it was the one I used for the creation shown
above. I still consider it the best. LEGO later released some slightly
junkier X-Wing models that were white. WHITE? Yes, white. There is a
large group of LEGO builders out there (the vast majority of them, in
fact) that believe the X-Wing (and just about every other Rebel ship,
including the Snowspeeder) should be white, because that was the color
(supposedly) of the models originally used by Lucasfilm. Well, I don't
care what color their models were; all I know is that in the movies, the
X-Wing looks GREY. As grey as grey can possibly BE, in fact! I used to
argue incessantly about this. Finally I've settled on one point that
should convince everyone. If it doesn't convince you, then you're a lost
On Hoth, was Luke Skywalker's X-Wing the same color as the snow? Were
the snowspeeders the same color? No, they were both darker. So the LEGO
models should be darker than white as well.
