Incom XJ-3 X-Wing fighter
Another sturdy and reliable fighter from the old Star Wars Expanded Universe.
About this creation
Hello, Star Wars fans! I know on my last creation (RZ-2 A-Wing) I said I wasn't doing another X-Wing. But like Obi-Wan said, it all has to do with how you look at it "from a certain point of view".




This craft is not the venerable T-65B from the the original trilogy, nor is it the T-70 from the new trilogy. This X-Wing is the XJ-3 model featured in the old Star Wars Expanded Universe material of the 80s and 90s. The XJ-3 was built by Incom to supplement the newer, more advanced, but considerably more expensive and complex E-Wing fighters.




The advancements made over the T-65 model are newer engines, bolstered shields, and a better armament. The XJ-3's laser cannons could be fired in "Stutter-fire" mode, which allowed it to shoot through the shields of Yuuzhan Vong ships (which also means that it shoots blue pew pews instead of red). Instead of 2 torpedo launchers, the XJ-3 had three.




This XJ-3 belongs to green squadron, while my E-Wing of the same era belongs to Rogue squadron.












































Thanks for looking and may the Force be with you!

Quoting Marin Stipkovic I like the way you built the angled intakes.
Thank you Marin! It was by far the most difficult thing to replicate.

Quoting Fell Skyhawk This is beautiful. If you made it during last year you could have entered this in my groups contest and probably would have won. Really well made. Great job. There needs to be more old EU creations from the New Jedi Order and Legacy time periods.
Thank you Fell! I appreciate the comments!

Quoting Nate Andrews "You're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view." Probably my favorite of yours so far. Those engine intakes are SICK!!! Very much like an F-22/F-35. The different armament and color scheme are also fantastic. Now THERE'S a version of the X-Wing I wish they'd feature in the movies. Oh well.
Thank you Nate! I would have also loved to see the xj3 in the new movies as well. At least it can live on as a MOC!
