Hi my fellow Lego Star Wars fans. I just finished my latest MOC, Plo Koon's Jedi starfighter.

After Lego releasing the beautiful Plo minifig last summer, I just thought he deserved his personal fighter in which he (sadly) dies in EP III. The model is constructed with official bricks, but I had to paint the original Eta-2 cockpit. The striping is done by using stickers which I created myself.

Hope you like it...

Hey, that looks ace! You've got his ship's markings looking just right too.

Great to see someone modelling the other Jedis' fighters. Have you got plans to do anymore?

Thanx pedro, my next project will be modifying the Republic Gunship and after that I would like to build a UCS Tyderium Shuttle, so another JSF will be unlikely. But when I change my mind I'll let you know!

Dude, where'd you get those leaked images of new lego sets? That's an awesome MOC, and if TLC made the set, it'd sell really well, even without a Plo Koon, because the ship is so well designed.
So am I still waiting, for this world to stop hating. Can't find a good reason, can't find hope to believe in.

Amazing! It's perfect to the movie, and the paintwork on the cockpit is spectacular! Now this is what I want for the Order 66 series in Lego (Plo Koon's version), but maybe replace the booster ring with an ARC-170. :sweet:

This is one of the best MOC of a starfighter I have seen  :oh: :oh3:, DutchRebel  :thumbup: . I think is way better than an official set  :tongue:  and the decals are just simply amazing  :thumbup: . Well if you try to do another jedi starfighter build the Sinsee Tinn one  :cry_happy:  :thumbup: . Good job  :thumbup:  :thumbup: .

The decals you have created are exceptional. Well done. I certainly look forward to upcoming images of your modified LAAT/i with great anticipation. I am sure they will be smashing. Hopefully, your customized gunship will inspire others to create and post their own LAAT/i modifications.

Very nice :thumbup:
The stripes are excellently done without taking away too much of the set's original look.

Great MOC!

It's so beautiful that words cannot describe. They should have brought a poet.

One nitpick: Although Plo Koon's live action death was shot in the Ep.3 Starfighter cockpit, the fighter shown in the movie actually had an ep.2 cockpit.
It's still awsome.
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Good eyes Norrington! When I was getting together my pix for reference I noticed this too. You see him flying this fighter but when the camera shows Plo inside the cockpit it has the grey lines above him (exactly as the eta 2 JSF). What a coincedense that my MOC has the right combination!!
