Hey.  A few weeks back, watching episode 15 of season 1 of Clone Wars, I saw this ship appear.

Posted Image

It made me think of an X-wing quite a lot, so I thought I'd MOC it.  All my sets are stored separately, I don't want to mix them up, so I thought this would be a good chance to mess around.  I used an A-wing cockpit though.

I'm mostly happy with it, but I like it in my hands more than in these pics.  Things I'd like to tweak: Make the nose two blocks longer, add a second steering handle, and put something slope-ier on the engines.  What do you think?  XP

Very good MOC :thumbup:  Could you give us instructions so we could build this ice beauty?

Well, since you asked nice  :wink:  If you have an X-wing, the pieces are just about all there.

That's brilliant! By the way, I believe it's called a Freeco speeder...just so you know.

Agreed.  I couldn't get the legs like the pic with just X-wing parts, but I modded my moc  :tongue: Two robot arms and an arm holder.  Also, I extended the cockpit a brick, threw in the extra handle, and put that grey piece on top that looks a little more techy.

Nice build !!!

Constructive criticism:
I would build the "nose" 1 or 2 bricks longer.

Respect all Lego bricks !!!

From the original in the first post, I've lengthened the nose 2 bricks, and shortened the tail just a bit.

Another great moc in the SW froum. :thumbup: I'll be making this tonight, except a shadow version. :devil:

Btw, add some Rep. insignias from the new clone BP. :classic: Then it would be very precise.

That is a nicely done MOC, def (Leppard?).

The only thing I would change is to replace white bricks with light grey and L. Grey with Dark Grey.

Just because I'm saying this doesn't mean that you have to go and buy an old X-Wing now.  :tongue:

Hehe, that's pretty good. :thumbup: The front is a little wide, though, and it's too bad you can't close the cockpit around the drivers feet. :sceptic: But I'm sure that if TLC decides to release a set of this, it would be similarly designed. :wink:

Thanks for the suggestions!  I think the grey would look nice, but I don't have the pieces, specifically the engines, though maybe I could do the rest.  Still, after a nights sleep, I gave the nose a big tweak.  I used a couple pieces from the little rebel gunship, 7668 (forgot the proper title).  The narrow nose was a good idea.  I'd like to extend it a little bit more so that it could be smoothed out on the top, but it's getting fragile at this size.  

So, here is the before

and after

Cheers all!  If you can make it better, please show me :wink:

I was kind of naive to work from a screen grab  :blush:  The star wars site has amazing resources for everything that appears in the clone wars show, so if I see something good in the next few episodes, I'll look there first  :pir_yoda:

One last try in light of the pics above.  Unfortunately, it's gotten so minimal it's become flimsy  :cry_sad:

I think this is it for this one, I had to scrounge pieces from a few different sets to get this shape.
