I tried updating this by using tips given to me by various members, I hope it turned out better! Sorry for the bad pics, I have no cameras in my house that take decent pics of legos.  :(

Updates:

- Slightly more angled wings.
- Smoother wings.
- New cockpit area, no so bulky and messy.
- Second wing underneat is farther back.
- Assorted bricks in different places.

Not bad, but is this a fanon creation?
According to Wookieepedia, a D-wing looks like this:

Cool Republic attack craft 'Gerrard' - sort of reminds me of a Cylon Raider (original series) ! :grin:
Great designing even though it doesn't look like the one in 'Brickdoctor's picture.
Keep on bricking 'Gerrard' keep on bricking ! :sweet:

I like it gut I have to agree with Brickdoctor that it does not look like a D-wing.

Maybe I should clarify, I'm not saying it looks bad or inaccurate. I was asking if it was intended to look like the canon D-wing, because if it wasn't then it's a good design. Only if it was intended to look like the canon D-wing would it be a bad model.

Hmmm, not bad but I personally don't like a couple of the major elements:

1) the cockpit is too small and cramped IMO, the pilot is literally almost lying down and he does not look comfortable in that position. Maybe you could make it bigger so that the pilot can have a normal sitting position inside. Or is that 'lyding down' position normal like in Slave I?
2) the wings are too "thick" for a starfighter that size. I don't know if I'm just used to sleeker wings but maybe you could lessen the thickness a bit.

That's a good start and you could always improve it Gerrard.

Thanks guys, it wasn't based off a D-Wing, I named it a D-Wing because there are two wings on each side. But thanks!

So...
'D' for Double-wing?
Like 'B' for Blade-wing?
