Cockpit Set for 1/18 DeAgostini X-Wing with Photo-Etched Parts
This cockpit set is specially designed to fit DeAgostini 1/18 Scale X-Wing.
The set includes:
- SLA resin cockpit frame
- SLA resin plant-on parts including clear parts
- SLA resin clear photo-conducting insert
- A sheet of photo-etched parts
- A sheet of decals
- Full-color assembly instructions
- A metalized label with a unique serial number
No modification of the stock parts is required. This cockpit slides into the cockpit tub replacing the stock cockpit.
The set comes with a hollow cockpit frame, some add-on parts, clear specially designed light-conducting insert, a sheet of photoetched parts, and a decals sheet.
The set includes both ANH and ESB front control panels as well as the targeting computer, which can be installed in a retracted or engaged position. Some of the plant-on parts are reused from the stock set of parts supplied with the model.
The photo-etched parts work as panels for the frame in order to be able to light up the cockpit from inside:
The decals are applied to the photo-etched parts. They are pushed inside all the recesses and panel lines to create an effect of a perfect seamless multilayered surface. We recommend using Mr. Mark Setter and Mr. Mark Softer decal solutions for the best results.
It is recommended to clear coat the photo-etched parts after the decals are dry in order to make them more durable.

The clear light-conducting insert slides inside from the bottom of the cockpit and fits snug at the top area of the cockpit right underneath the photo-etched parts. There is a 3mm opening on the back of the insert in order to accommodate the center 3mm LED light supplied as a stock part.
The photo-etched parts effectively block the light coming from the clear insert, which results in a bright, life-like appearance of the light-up effect:
