Rejoice, fellow Lego nerds, because Mike Psiaki just sent me the instructions and a part list for the best Lego X-Wing model ever created. Yes, my friends, now you can build your own.
A while back you wrote a piece about my Lego x-wing model. I figured it might be of interest that I just completed "instructions" (I was too lazy to do any CAD, simply took extensive breakdown photographs) and a parts list. The parts list is a little different from what I show in the instructions (when I use a 1x2 tile and a 1x1 tile next to each other I wanted to use a 1x3 tile, so I list that in the inventory). Also, when I built the original thing I used a lot of parts in colours that I didn't need to, so there could be some more simplification as well.
Suffice to say, it's not perfect and it's nowhere close to a real Lego set, but I think it will do.
It may not be perfect, but it is better than the real Lego sets — including the last 2012 model.
Then, go go to Mike's Brickshelf Gallery to see the construction steps. Have fun! [Thanks Mike!]
