Going back to building Star Wars again with my absolute favorite from the galaxy far far away. The T-47 airspeeder, commonly known as the snowspeeder.

Even though some of the official snowspeeder iterations were decent, I don't think they ever truly captured the essence of this beautiful vessel. Making it in white was a big misstake IMO. It made it look way to shiny and new.

This Moc on the other hand has a mix of every grey/bley color available. That's a conscious descision on my part and I think it's a sadly underused method to achieve the right weathered look when MOC:ing SW stuff.

The stickers are custom made, but the front pattern is of course largely based on the official printed pieces.

The Moc is the second version I make with the same basic premise. A lot is different this time and you can take a look at the previous one at my old Brickshelf gallery for comparison if you like.

More pics of the snowspeder at my Flickr

Let me know what you think.

Amazing work. This is one of my favourite ships too. Your weathered effect looks great IMO :thumbup:. You have also scaled the model well :thumbup:.

Great work Lars, and a very successful update of your original too!

I love your attention to detail, such as the tiny intake, greebling around the engines/cannons, the harpoon cannon and cockpit - all very nice and very authentic. You're definitely an MoC'er to look out for! :wink:

It's a beauty :wub:

It looks very compact, looking at the cockpit. And highly detailed wings/lasers as well.

A comparison picture with the old models would be awesome if you'd find time for it. :blush:

This is very well done. I love it. You created in Lego form one of my favourite ships from Star Wars. I agree with your comments about not using white pieces. The weathered look is much much better.

I love it very much ! Couldn't even find a thing that I didn't like.

Good pictures also and a nice comparison shot at the end. Hopefully you will add a bottom or exploded view as well. Would be nice to build one myself as I haven't been able to capture it's beauty as you have. Very good job :)

Very good work the only bad thing about it is the lack of white. :sceptic:

Now I've added the requested comparison pic where you can see my snowspeeder MOC together with two of the official ones.

There's a couple of new pics added so you can have a look at all of them here

That's really nice! Are you planning on doing build instructions like you have with some of your other models?

Beautiful!

Since I cannot remember what the correct colour of the snowspeeder is, I'll go for what you said and MOCed; grey. And grey certainly is better that white!

Great work.

Keep MOCing!

This is really an amazing Snowspeeder Lars!

I was just thinking of how big it was in comparison to the "official" one.

The size is reallt great with a lot of nice details.

I really enjoy browsing the rest of your Flickr account as well.

I never saw this before. But this has to be the best Snow Speeder in minifig scale I've ever seen. Excellent work on this.

All we need now is the crashed version just prior to the AT-AT stepping on it.

Thats what I was thinking. :tongue:
