After a series of MODs in my previous projects, I decided to create something original that has not yet been done in lego before. One of the more prominent background vehicles in the SW movies that has really caught my attention when I first saw it in RoTS, I'm proud to present to you, The Jedi Shuttlebus.
The Jedi shuttlebus, also known as the Jedi shuttle or Senate shuttlebus or Senate speeder bus, was a model of airbus used on Coruscant during the final years of the Galactic Republic by members of the Galactice Senate and the Jedi Order. - Wookieepedia
With passengers inside: The jedi are going into a li'l field trip...
A closer look inside:
The front can accomodate astromechs (Left) and the Pilot station at the back of the shuttlebus (Right)
Opening door with platform
How big is this thing? Technically, this shuttlebus is 48 studs long and 8 studs wide. The comparison photo below shows its relative size to other SW vehicles. I tried to be as accurate as possible with the right proportions, and I think it turned out pretty well.
The Inspiration: The real Jedi Shuttlebus (as it appeared in this scene in RoTS).

Behind the Scenes: This is my Post #2222. I've had this weird habit of commemorating my uniquely numbered posts.
Well, that's it I hope you like it guys! C & C's are welcome!
UP NEXT: Revisiting an old MOC (you just saw a glimpse of it above )
