I build a scene of the Rebel frontline on the ice planet Hoth, depicting a Snowspeeder T-47 zooming into action, and the Rebel infantry below.
The original set (7130, Snowspeeder) was released in 1999, that was one of my first Star Wars Sets. I've dreamed to rebuild the scene as a vignette for a long time.
I just love the suspense captured in the movie: The rebels are waiting for the big battle on hoth.
"When the P-Tower gets ready to fire, you can feel the charge, hear the hum, see the dish light up it's a moment of hope. And then the blast just bounces off an AT-AT and you realize that the situation is hopeless"
Some details: You can open the cockpit for minifigure access. The detailed seat and control panels. I don't like printet plates. So I've used some unconventional parts like the radios. The harpoon gun has a working retractable cable. And there are movable air brakes. More details like the remarkebel red signs on the bottom side. The cooling grill and the engines behind it.
The design of the snowspeeder is inspired by Larry Lars creation. There are also some new Sets included, such as the 8083 Rebel Trooper Battle Pack and some new parts (windscreen) of the set 5866-1: Rotor Rescue.
