This article shows a step-by-step guide on how to model a Koensayr Manufacturing BTL Y-Wing Starfighter straight from the Star Wars Universe!
Step 1: Materials
Varying toothpicks can be used for the much smaller pieces like the Y-wing's blaster and ion cannons.
Wooden spoons were used for the round exhaust nozzles.
Step 2: Tools
A moto tool proved invaluable for basic shaping and finishing. Particularly handy were the drum and disc sander attachments and various shapes of wood cutting bits available for dremel hand tools. Be careful in using the moto tool since you'll be shaping some really tiny parts!
White glue was the only adhesive necessary for the project. Since white glue dries soooo sllooowwwwllyyyyy, plastic clamps were necessary to hold pieces in place.
Finally, a pair of nice tweezers was used to handle and mount small parts to the much larger pieces.
