A group of Naboo soldiers with a Gian speeder await Captain Panaka's command to engage the Trade Federation Droid regiment creating a diversion to steer them away from guarding the hangar entrance.

Commentary:
The last pic was photoshopped to add the lens flare, if not allowed I'll substitute the original without the lens flare. Two 16x32 tan baseplates were used as base footprint and there's no overhang whatsoever as the various pics show. Took a couple of days to design, the Gian speeder alone took two days to build until I was satisfied with it and less than two weeks to complete. As with the other two entries, I've kept the design and build true to the scenes, no gimmicks necessary.


Here's a reference pic that I found for this scene.  

Unless KimT finds something that requires a change to comply with the rules, this is the final version.

Comments and suggestions are welcomed but I won't be making anymore changes as I've got to get going on the Large scene.

Enjoy viewing more pics here or by clicking on any pic above before posting your comments. I'd also appreciate if you mention what details you liked about it or not.

As always, great architecture on the Naboo structure AC! :thumbup: I also love your version of the Gian speeder, much much better than the official set.

Good luck on the contest!

That's a really nice scene - the speeder is great.

The only suggestion would be to introduce some colour in the buildings other than tan, perhaps sand green or light brown, just to give the buildings a more realistic look compared to the original scene.

This will help it look aged also. The foliage attached to the walls looks nice.

Tried to get that speeder designed more like the one in the movie and good thing I got the bricks in the right colors.

Actually considered mixing up the tan but I didn't have enough dark tan bricks to cover.

Its good that you didnt try to add heaps of detail but its really subtle in this MOC. The use of the quarter pipe piece is really cool but how did you get it upside down? :wacko:

In the actual set, the front building with the arch was just a plain octagonal shape structure and not much detail except for the windows. That's for you to figure out!  :wink:

Too early to be thinking that as I'm sure most will probably wait until the end to post their entries. I'd rather not wait that long as the next entry for small category is in progress.

Hey ACPin,

extremely cool MOC!

However, I can't help but think that the would maybe be better in dark bluish gray or something?

Anyway,  :thumbup:
