Custom overload! This is awesome! The slanted sides, the back, the stickers on the front! Even the top is great! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Hello!

A fantastic creation! It's great to see a lesser known vehicle in system-scale. :classic: It seems to be the perfect use of the large cockpit piece in this shuttlebus. The repulsorlift engines are also nicely designed.

Cheers,

Nice work, Kiel! I've always loved that little speeder, and you've captured it briliantly! The bottom needs to be a bit wider though.

Lovely shuttlebus, KDM! :thumbup:

Very detailed and movie-accurate! The stickers are very well-applied too! It's a shame its not purple and that the base isn't quite the right shape (that's what I noticed about the door). Still, its an excellent representation!

Good work! :classic:
Thanks ADHO! Yeah, it was supposed to be purple (or near purple) if not for the aforementioned over-editing of the photos. :grin: And I understand that the base isn't quite as wide as I would have wanted it to be. Actually I could have done it using other techniques, but it would compromise the interior space (I had to stick with the 6 stud-wide interior for the 'convenience' of the passengers. :wink:)

Wow this is absolutly amazing one thing though I think the top back cock pit should be turned around and then it would be perfecto :sweet:
Thanks Darth Jar Jar! Actually I could have positioned the pilot cockpit piece either way, but I chose that position to achieve a continuous sloping position at the back (as you could see in this ref. pic)

Great work as usual! I think you captured the shape and size of it rather well, the only thing I dont like about it is the CW minifigs  :tongue: But that is just my personal preference. Keep up the great work!

I appreciate the kind words the Inventor. Posted Image Uhmm, those strangely colored tan pieces are actually painted parts, that was the closest color match to TLG's tan available in our place. It does look weird but I just have to look at those uneven colors as a something of a 'wear-and-tear' surface effect of the real shuttlebus .
..
That explains the color difference, it still looks a bit weird.

That's very cool - Belongs in a diorama.

You could make a very nice Coruscant scene using the shuttle. Well done!

Thanks for the kind comments prateek! The stickers are ok, but not the perfect of all applications. Posted Image The glass top does look refreshing for a SW ship, one of the main factors that drew me create this one.

Thanks for the kind words Legostein. When I first saw the trans-clear Slave I cockpit I knew that would be the perfect use for that piece.

'Little' speeder? I don't think that's the right word to describe the shuttlebus. Posted Image Yeah as I stated above I could've widened the base but at the expense of the interiors. But I'm glad you still liked it!

Can't believe I havn't seen this yet, It looks really good!  It's always hard doing cannon models, for me at least, because you want them to look as accurate as possible, and I can say that you did a really good job at making this accurate alright.  Can't wait to see what your working on next!

To be specific, this is what I did with the stickers: I spray-painted (more professional finish than printed ones) two bare white sticker papers with tan and purple. I measured the specific dimensions of the cockpit area that need stickers, and then I cut it out and applied them. It is kinda tedious to do, you really have to have some sort of sense of right proportions. I guess it turned out pretty decent, except for the observable peeling. :hmpf_bad:

You could try using very fine sandpaper (I like 600 grit sanding film, which is plasic backed and can be washed and used many times over) to make the surface of the windshield rougher and therefore easier to adhere to.

The peeling problem happens on the edges and not on the 'flat' surfaces, add the fact that the cockpit piece is curved. Nevertheless, thanks for the suggestion Doc. Maybe next time I would consider using the what I think is the better technique - spray-paint! :devil:
