Razor Squadron was one of the Elite Galactic Republic squadrons that was active during the Clone Wars, and typically flew customized Aggressive ReConnaissance-170 starfighters on special ops missions from Coruscant to Nelvaan and Cato Neimoidia. The squadron is the composed of specially trained attack and recon vessel clone trooper pilots, equally skilled clone commandos, and on-board specialized astromech droids to handle in-flight operations.

This project was inspired when I saw one of these in a local TRU store. Since the parts for my other MOC are taking forever to arrive, I decided to present this one instead. This is part of my MOD series following my J.A.G. and ARC Gunship. This is my modified version of the 8088 ARC-170 Starfighter, the specific modifications will be highlighted by the comparison photos that will follow. There are two revisions that I made, one in the regular ARC-170 dark red color scheme, and the other in the dark blue Razor Squadron custom color.

Slight modifications on the rear part, including the rear guns.

As a way of giving back to my fellow Eurobrickers (and just for the fun of it Posted Image), I'll be running a mini-trivia contest in my MOCs/MODs, starting with this one.

Question: How many specific unique parts in this Razor Squadron ARC-170 Starfighter MOC are not available in standard lego colors? (Clue: They are limited in these colors: red, dark blue, white, and black)

Just post your answers at the end of your comments. The first one to get the right answer, or the closest one, will win a special lego prize from me. (It's just a small token of appreciation, so don't expect big prizes yet, let's start small. Posted Image) This mini-contest shall run for 2 weeks until I pick the winner. Posted Image

Thanks for viewing! C&C’s fire away!

That is really very, very good! The dark-blue works perfect with that design.
The only downside is the sticker. It is not so red as I would have wanted it to be (Lego-red).
But apart from that, AWESOME!

Thanks lightningtiger! All those dreaded decals are actually hand-cut-out painted sticker paper and not printed from the printer. I really had a hard time putting all those stickers. Posted Image But anyway, anything to capture the right look. Posted Image

My printer, unfortunately, has failed me and thus, the pale red colored noseart. So I resorted to cut out stickers yet again to put up the noseart. I will try to fix that problem. Anyways, I'm glad you still liked it! Posted Image

The set is awesome in it self, it just gets down a notch with a strong detail like that.

Thanks WhiteFang! Your description of the ARC-170 suits very well the pilots of the Razor Squadron, as they were know to fly more aggressively compared to other standard clone ARC pilot counterpart. As Wookieepedia describes them:

"As an elite surgical strike and recon force using advanced hit-and-run tactics against large enemy targets and facilities, Razor Squadron's focus was more on delivering greater and more intense fire-power and less on strengthening defensive systems."

Another stunning rendition Kiel! Well done! :sweet:
You really have the eye for customising your SW collection! The decal work is very impressive, and your boldness in customising figures really pays off! I was considering getting this fighter from the Hasbro line when I collected the figures, but this LEGO one is ten times better. :thumbup:

Can't wait to see what else you make! Any spoilers/hints? :wink:

Here are the painted parts:

CTT Wheel parts (dark blue)
parts that go in the CTT wheels (black)
The parts that go on the ends of the guns (red)

And I don't know what the white part is, but I think you painted this part but it's actually available in white.

Unfortunately, the tiger stripe stickers aren't softcopy images but just hand-cut dark blue sticker papers. I will try to post the rancor noseart sometime later. I'm glad you like it.

Thanks TGWTB! Yeah, it seems like I've becoming the unofficial parts customizer with my recent (if not most) of my MOCs/MODs.

From the looks of it, I think you have a 100% chance of winning, since you're the only contestant so far! :laugh:

It's the Empire. Either they joined the Empire :vader: , were killed off by the Empire :devil: , or became fire fighters and mechanics like most of the Fett Clones.

Thanks prateek! Yeah, the mods are quite unnoticeable especially on the dark red version, I just had to do it to improve TLG's version as always the case. Glad you like the custom figs, sadly I had to sacrifice the standard ARC pilots for the Razor Squadron aces.
