Firespray Prototype 1/160

We all know the history of the Slave I, one of the six Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft prototypes developed by Kuat Systems Engineering.
I thought of a scene with a half-finished prototype performing a hover test in a Kuat hangar, some time before it was delivered to prison moon Oovo IV.

Based on a Revell EasyKit Pocket (1/160 scale), decorated with some model railroad staff, kitbash parts, repaint, custom decals and a scratched R2 unit.

I love it- I really do...

Except for the symbols, and English. It just removes it from Star Wars.

I mean, really, otherwise, it's beautiful and I love the concept...

I love just about everything about this- the concept, the paint scheme, the unique mounting- but I especially love the way you depicted a team of technicians caught in a moment working on a prototype complete with exposed wiring and hand gestures (you can almost hear them yelling over the engine sounds).

English text is a point. Maybe I can print new Aurebesh decals.
The symbols - hm, nearly essential for the "prototype" character. Any other fictional symbols would soon move it to a typical patched-up rebels vessel with its colored stripes and markings.
