Here’s my modified Poe Dameron Resistance X-Wing from The Rise of Skywalker. I’ve aimed to improve the width and slope of the nose, add some detail to the lasers, add landing gear, improve the wings so they close much closer together and hide the wing-opening lever.


I usually keep my mods simple with surface changes only where possible, but on this set I’ve changed a few structural parts in the nose and rebuilt the wings. With the last three X-Wings I felt that the nose was too skinny so its now slightly wider along the white part and has a little more height and depth in front of the cockpit. The landing gear are a simple addition, easily done on its own, as are the admittedly fragile laser mods.



The wings now close with only one layer of studs overlapping, it was a compromise for strength and simplicity but they do at least look more like one plane when closed. Luckily the engines are excellent so I haven’t touched them at all, thanks Lego for doing such a great job! The hatch covering the lever is a very simple change and doesn’t interfere with the mechanism at all, I removed the internal bar that pokes out underneath but you could always leave it in if you like the play feature.


I’ve tried to keep the number of extra pieces for the modification low... but I failed. It’s a total of 77 pieces, they’re all common though and the total cost should only be around £/€/$5. The instructions are a mix of my own steps and referenced to steps in the original set instructions, my idea was to be thorough so that you can easily identify how much of each area to remove before modding. I hope that its easy to take some parts off the wings and nose and add the extra pieces but if you spot any mistakes or have any questions I’m more than happy to get back to you :)

I hope you enjoy the mods, it's been a good way for me to learn more about the Stud.io instruction feature so more will be on the way!
