Hello dear community!
As some of you may have noticed, my presence on these fine boards was very limited during the last weeks. I might not be able to post that many new models in the near future. Due to my difficult real life situtaion with finishing university, starting a new job starting soon, house moving, I feel quite burned out. The pressure from all sides is more that I can handle. Hence I won't have much time for our all favourite hobby. I am sorry should I disappoint you.
Today, there's fortunately some time left to show you a new model. It's the BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter from the Clone Wars animated TV series. The BTL-B is different from the successor models BTL-S3 and BTL-A4 which you know from the Rebellion Era. The older version has fully covered engines and a dome for the gun tower.
The bricked model uses a SNOT technique, allowing the attchment of 1x3 and 1x4 curved slopes which resemble the sleek curves of the design. While the 1x4 curved slopes are attched from the outside to give the rounded front wedge section with the cockpit, the 1x3 cruved slopes are attached from the inside to give the support for the engine fuselage.
As BrickShelf is again very slow in updating, I'll post all images here. Instructions can be found directly on http://sw.deckdesigns.de. I will of course provide the BrickShelf gallery link once moderated.
With that I am done for today. Thank you for your interest and stepping by.
Take care all,
