I got some eSun Bio from this guy:

he was cheaper than marvle3d www.trademe.co.nz/stores/marvle3d and about 5 minutes from my house!

Are things expensive to print?
Would love to get a 1/48 y-wing made one day

Not really, the best way to do it something that big would be to print in on a regular FDM printer in PLA or ABS and then print the detail stuff like the panels etc in resin. You could do it in pure resin but you'd want to make sure it was hollow or it will weigh a tonne and cost you a bomb.

I think with careful planning (as you say, hollowing and making it in well chosen parts) Resin could be pretty viable.. Some basic parts could perhaps be FDM though.

I have seen someone selling STL files for a clone wars era Y-Wing.
Would be fantastic to print one, but probably not the best if it is going to cost a small fortune.

I may try hollowing and printing some larger model components, see how they stack up in cost/detail/accuracy/strength etc.
