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.

The initial sketches:



Basic form takes shape:


Cockpit details:


Paneling and puttying:


Home-made greeblies:




Astromech port:



Primed:


Main colors (before weathering):

The finished fighter:







From top and bottom:



Astromech port detail:


Shot with Artoo:


Cockpit:



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.

I think what really stands out is the non-typical paint job (the stripes). It contributes to it's uniqueness.

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!

Looks good, it has a nice aged weathered effect yet its not real dirty.. I like the cockpit nice detail.
