I got all excited to build a full on MOC, and got the idea all planned out, and then realized what the contest was  :blush: Anyway, this is much better than the first MOC I made, so I thought I'd post it.

The concept is a Republic Interceptor, a high-speed, highly maneuverable starfighter for clone troopers, specifically for complex dogfights, like in an area with heavy debris or an asteroid field.  The ship is meant to have it's own high speed navigating computer since clones don't have the reaction time of a Jedi.  Perhaps it is a clone starfighter?  :hmpf:

Comments or criticisms welcome, though I'll probably rip it apart soon to make a proper land vehicle.

Did I review your Academy review and you've waited more than three days for a follow up after you fixed it?  PM me.  I'll get it done.

Looks sturdy and sleek and I also like the engines which look really neat and the controls inside the cockpit
I am also a big fan of Liverpool FC, Chelsea, QPR (Queens Park Rangers) , and West Bromwich Albion

I love the use of the round pieces. I would, perhaps, have prefered grey over the white pieces, but it's still very well done. The cockpit controls particularly.

Nice MOC, it gives a Clone Warsy kind of feeling. I especially like the yellow.  :thumbup:

That's an incredible MOC! I love the controls as well as the landing gear.

Thats a brilliant little fighter and I love the colour scheme and overall shape, although I don't know why you didn't save it for later, I mean you never know what the next contest will be... :classic:

Nice creation!
It looks like it would go great with the Republic Attack Shuttle (because of the color scheme of course). It would be cool if someone made a mod to the Attack Shuttle so that it can like hold that and drop it off like one of those dropships.  :classic:
I don't know why, but to me it sorta looks like the alien strikecraft from 7693 ETX Alien Strike.  :tongue:

Nice design.  The best thing I think you can do with a SW ship is actually make working landing gear.  So often the landing gear seems to be stuck on as an after thought.  You did a great job building your ship with a nice tight design.  It is interesting that you would think of using the round pieces to make the wings.  I do not know of any Republic ships that are made in a circular design.  That is more of a CIS design.    Nice job though.
How many bricks can a Eurobrick brick, if a Eurobrick could brick bricks.

Great, I think I like the engine design the most.
