So some pictures are coming out of Hollywood showing a full-scale x-wing parked outside the theater where Rogue One will be premiering. Details match the prop we've seen in trailers and behind the scenes footage. How does it look compared to its sister prop from A New Hope?
Started with a photomatch of one of the images from the hollywood prop:
This is pretty quick and dirty, and I don't think I nailed the proportions or matched the perspective perfectly, but I think this is giving me a good idea of the major planes the make up the body.
here's the same thing done with the ANH version
And here's a comparison of the two
the different colors show the major planes. ANH's nose was more complex, and most of the planes are subtly curved to meet each other at the seams. The RO version seems more streamlined. That large yellow plane across the nose is completely flat as far as I can tell. Only the orange panel with the curved edges is a complex non-planar shape.
