- Make the blasters smaller.
- The rear part (behind the cockpit) should be grey on the top, yellow on the bottom
- And if you could add a wedge-shaped yellow highlight in the wings to approximate Anakin's JSF's real colors.
I would love to see this in brickform (any plans?), and in other JSF colors as well.

I'm not really sure what you mean. Could you make a demonstration version and show me.

Hmmm... Cavegod gets away with that because he doesn't have the wedge but that's not a sacrifice I'm willing to make. I can't make such a simple connection like he does. Also I wouldn't be able to get the yellow point.

Ok then I see you are a man of conviction and I respect that. & I hope I did not offend you that was not my intention. Again I really like your MOC and IMO it is one of the better Jedi Starfighters I have seen online. Keep up the great work!

No offense taken. I do appreciate the suggestion but I think it would be a lesser compromise. No if I were to do it UCS scale who knows what I could sneak in ;)

Very different to most JSF MOCs!

Refer to the reference picture below as you read:
Click this. For some reason I can't deeplink it.
One defining trait of the Delta-7B - as well as one reason I don't like this ship too much - is the large "blade" in the front of the ship that is more pronouced than in the Delta-7 due to the "wings" on either side being a bit smaller and more offset. It would be better if you could achieve this in your MOC. Which leads me to the guns; they are about the right size on your ship but they should be shorter, as the guns on the actual ship are like small canisters. In addition to that, the deep grooves directly in front of the cannons (deeper than on the Delta-7) are next to nonexistent on your MOC.
Another thing that's lacking is the dark square-like structures on the rear of the Delta-7B, carried over from the Delta-7. I see neither the mentioned structures nor the yellow arrows in front of them.
I will say, however, that I like the style in which this is built - perhaps more detail could be included if the ship itself were to be built in a larger scale (around 1/30)? I know from experience that construction is slightly restrictive at that size.

I agree to some degree and would love to work out a way to pull it off but at the scale I'm yet to work out a solution.
I agree about the guns. I based the whole thing on various pictures including those of the Delta-7 and may have used the wrong guns for the MOC. But I'm sorry I think complaining about the groove is just pointless without offering a viable alternative. If you can tell me how to get a small groove on a slope I'll add it in. I've got nothing against sensible critique but seriously... that's just an unreasonable complaint.
I see no yellow arrows on the picture you link to but agree that those squares are very obvious in that pic. Unfortunately that obviousness doesn't seem to be remotely standard.
Upscaling always offers the opportunity for more detail. But I'm far too lazy to try it ;)

Yes I could lose the slope and get the groove. But then I'd have a hole in my wing which I think would look much sillier than having no groove. And the panel wouldn't fit in the space available.
Can you demonstrate a way, with this or a similar construction to achieve BOTH the groove and the slope? If you can show me a way I'll be rather happy but I'm fairly sure it's impossible.
And to get away from specificities while I don't disagree with your comments I do think that one should offer a plausible solution when calling for the near-impossible and very difficult. It's very easy to just say "that's not quite right" but if you're not taking into account the limitations of building with LEGO (which is, after all, what we do), it's somewhat meaningless prattle.
