I figured I'd throw this one out there...I made it over two years ago and always kind of liked it. I had a rough idea for an 'original trilogy' rebel alliance fighter...I wouldn't describe it as all that ground-breaking in terms of design, but it had a comfortable Star Wars universe feel that was reminiscent of a snowspeeder.

It isn't perfect or anything, and I kept the profile angular to make it easy t build, but I still have a soft spot for it.

That is a beautiful piece of work....and the original design that you came up with could easily have been popped into a McQuarrie sketchbook. Awesome work as always!
