Hi guys  :classic:

Finally 100% completed my minifig-scale Slayn & Korpil B-Wing (Link) a few weeks ago. It's very swooshable! As promised I have also built a Dagger Squadron B-wing to sit alongside the standard B-Wing. I'm currently working on a Rebel Hangar for all my starfighters and troops. Enjoy!

Just beautiful! I love how the cockpit stays horizontal no matter the wing configuration. Very swooshable you say, also nicely detailed to boot. Nice in sand blue or dark red. Well done.

Thanks for the comments guys  :sweet:

I'm really happy the dark red version has turned out so good. Its quite easy to change the colour scheme with only a handful of bricks - I might try yellow or orange next. It is remarkably stable which is what I was aiming for. I'm thinking of posting some construction pics soon.

Very nice!  :wub: The B-Wing is actually one of my favourite Star Wars ships and your version is much better than TLG last (half-decent) version. It seems you have a spare; can I have the sand blue version?  :grin: (It looks like you got those parts from the Life On Mars sets.)

Impressive.
I've never really liked the B-Wing as a ship, because of its 'non-cliche-spaceship' look, but you really make me change my mind!

Keep MOCing!

Thanks  :classic: The B-Wing is one of my favourite ships from the OT. I tried to put as much detail as I could into it, whilst keeping it in minifig scale.

Here's a rear shot of the engines.

Wow, those are purely amazing... :wub: I love the B-wing, but never much cared for the ones LEGO made...These, though, are simply amazing. Very detailed, very good. Keep up the good work.  :thumbup:

Theses are amazing! The shape and colours are just so perfect and the way the cockpit can swivel around depending on how the ship is orientated is really well done.

Great work!

Great B-Wing(s)  :classic:  I am wondering how you were holding your camera in some of your shots (just curious)?

That is really good.
The detail is much better than the official version.
The guns and cockpit are cool.
Top Class! :thumbup:

Hello!

These are pretty impressive! :classic: It's clearly superiro to all official B-Wing designs. Especially as your center wing is fully symmetrical with studs on both sides. Among my favourite details - although there are many more excellent details to discover - are the little engines for which you used those old rigid space wheels. :classic:

Very well done!

I`m truly impressed with this, the B-Wing is one of my favourite SW ships (or at least starfigters) and these are great.
I have one question though: are the two models completely identical (except for colours of course) ?
Just call me Rob.

For the most part they are identical.

I put together a small diorama this morning.

Enjoy!

Posted 31 January 2010 - 06:24 PM

Those are great! I swear I've seen those techniques before, but what matters is the perfect matching you did! You're going to get a MOC expert badge for sure!

The think I like most is your choice of red and blue. They aren't bright and flashy like the lighter colors so they blend in with the gray well. Keep it up! :thumbup:

Those are amazing. Fantastic details and much, much better than the official Lego versions, which I never really liked much. These are fantastic. The colours do set them off nicely and the colours are well chosen.

Like the diorama too.  :thumbup:
