I present to you my newest MOC, the Mandalorian Starfighter.

The Mandalorian Starfighter was first used during the Clone Wars as a light fighter. It is very fast and agile, with abilities rivaling those of a Jedi Interceptor. However, unlike that ship, it has a built-in hyperdrive. Its main weapons are the two laser cannons located on the tip of the wings.

Here is a view from the front. I think this is the worst angle of the ship. You can see where the wings connect to the body and the cones that serve as cannons.

Here it is from the back. It was hard to do the angled part on the two sides, because I couldn't find the necessary pieces at first. I ended up using these and these, connected to these.

Here you can see more of the wing. I added the blue stripes to make the ship more Mandalorian-looking, and to make the wings less bland. The other side is the same as this, as the ship is symmetrical.

The cockpit has only two joystick pieces, because there isn't room for anything else. The Mandalorian minifig can fit in with the jetpack on. The canopy piece is the one from the Magnaguard Starfighter, and is exclusive to that set. Unfortunately there isn't enough room to have an opening function.

I really like how this part turned out to be, with all the greebles.The thing on the back is supposed to be the hyperdrive.

You can see more of how the wings are connected on the underside. I think it looks really sleek.

Here is a bonus shot of the Mandalorian with his ship.

Interesting ship! The cockpit definitely has a Mandalorian feel to it. I like the technique for the wings. And a good-looking underside? Bonus points! :classic:

It looks very good.

I'd add some knob on the wing to give it more details, and too bad the cockpit doesn't open, maybe if the ship was 1 stud longer it could be possible.

Great MOC, the only thing I think you need to improve are the wings because they lack of detail. :hmpf_bad:

In that solution the hinge is not connected to anything. Thanks for the idea though.

In fact you should use standard 4070.

Found a solution to the cockpit problem:

I'll post pictures tomorrow, as it is too dark here to take good pictures. I've also added greebles to the wings.
