Hey guys. Now that I had a taste of scratch building a snowspeeder, I would like to build a more accurate model in terms of dimensions and detail. Does any one know if there are any blueprints available? Or does anyone have the exact specs of the MR?
I also need reference to parts id's if anyone has any.
Thansk for the help! Take Care!
Chris

There is also the fullsize Snowspeeder in the backlot of Hollywood Disney (years ago it used to be in front of Startours). Likethe skiff they have, I always assumed it was a real set used piece.

Anyhow, there are a lot of images of it on the webif you do a google search "Disney Snowspeeder"

Can anyone vouch for the dimensions of the old AMT kit? I realize the details are probably soft and possibly inaccurate due to the pantographing of the kit from some larger version along the way, but what do we know about the provenance of it?

was that used for filming or just purpose built for Star Tours? I saw it in person and always thought it looked like it was only built for Disney.

Said this an AGE ago, but in the recent Making of ESB book, the dims for this prop are given.
Ive not had the time to check them all out, but its worth a look for sure.

Simon is right though, if you want this accurate, its a VERY costly build in donors so why not consider a kit?

The recent kit from Nick, and now in the hands of Steve and Mike, is worth a look, the casting from Mike is about the best GK ive ever worked on, i cant fault it, and its so cheap compared to a full scratchbuild.

That one was just built for Disney. As fir the AMT it's not very accurate in dims. Still one of the better early kits imoh.

I agree! the amt is cool but the dimentions are a bit off. I know when i built my scratch, i scaled mine up from the amt but had to change some specs.
