Fabricating X-Wing Star Wars Fighter

How we fabricated the X-Wing Star Wars Fighter Spaceship

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

We wanted to create a 3D prop using a simple 2D machine.
We used our FCX848 CNC Hot Wire Foam Cutter (our 2 blocks machine), which is used for creating two dimensional projects.

Using 2lbs EPS foam, we cut all pieces separately, then glued them using epoxy glue.

Next step - We will coat the fighter with Polyurea hard coat and paint it. 
Here is how it will look like once done:
