Mr. Plinkett’s The Star Wars Awakens Review is Brilliant

Pretty much every Star Wars fan knows who Mr. Plinkett is. If for some reason you don’t, drop what you are doing and go watch his scathing analysis of why the Prequels “SUCK HAIRY BALLS COVERED IN VOMIT” (his words not mine).

Mr. Plinkett’s videos are long mind you, and you’d be hard pressed to watch everything in one sitting. They are also interlaced with extremely morbid humour.

I was more than happy to play the Rebels since, like a normal person, they were the side I rooted for in the movies.

Custom Repaint: B-Wing Red Squadron with Rebel Logo

This repaint I used as a Dagger Squadron ship, or a thematic Red Squadron ship. It’s been modded to be fully rotational as with my other B-Wing mods. A few freehand rebel logos on the wings make it really stand out. Continue reading Custom Repaint: B-Wing Red Squadron with Rebel Logo
