Can't afford the big gunship set and find the mini version boring? Then try the midi-scale!
This is my Midi-scale version of republic gunship, also known as LAAT. Features include side cannons, opening side hatches, a snot top,rocket system, and a rear gun. The model is very swooshable too.

A well done Midi-scale version of the LAAT-i, I like this version better than the original Midi-scale version, wait a sec there isn't one.
I love it.  :wub:
Maybe you could make some nose decals, it looks a bit empty.
Nice part use for those side gun turrets, and do I spot some flick-fire missile piece for the guns.  :thumbup:

wow! awesome. You have scaled it perfectly to midi scale. I really like the cockpit pieces they do a really good job for the glass and they are a great size. The grey front you better in lime green in my opinion but the model is awesome right now.

Fantastic work!

Very nicely done.  I think TLG should do a midi-scale LAATi and yours will be a very nice template for them.  Maybe they should jusy buy the design off you.

Very nice MOC. I actually really like the whole mid-scale idea, and it would be great if Lego would continue it. It would be great if you could post a size comparison shot because from this picture it is hard to tell how big it really is.

thanks you guys for the nice comments :classic: I might scale down the official stickers and apply them on the MOC but i cannot promise. Also i'll put a pic of it in my hand so you can get the scale. i think its size is similar to midi-millenium falcon.

Nice. Really, really nice.

The lines are excellent, the cockpit pieces are well chosen - as are the side gunpods - and I think it's very cool you've got cargo doors (though they should be a stud or two taller).

Can you do one in blue next?

That surely looks like an awesome model of one of my favorite vehicles in the SW Universe.

I have both the Mini Version (scattered in parts for a long time) and the CW Gunship (sadly still in the box waiting to be built) and this surely looks like a mid-way between those two (from the eye, I couldn't care less about scales and such honestly).

I will have to agree with some of the previous posters, on the fact it would look a lot better with some decals. It just looks a bit "empty" this way.

Otherwise, it's a great MOC you've got there.  :wink:

Cheers

I think you did an awesome job on this midi-scale LAAT, it could have been a TLC design :wub:
I'm more of a minifigure scale person but can really enjoy the mini and midi scales.

Great job  :thumbup:

Nice work Artizan!

You've captured the sleek shapes and details really well - great use of crystal-ball parts too! Not to mention the new scale... it'd be interesting to compare if LEGO ever do their own version.

I like the composited action-shot - though your model looks a wee bit stretched in that picture for some reason? No worries though!
