Here is a quick build I did today.
The color choice in the front was a little bit forced (lack of parts in yellow) but I tried to use it as a concept (like the grey stripe which ends on the engine). I didn't photograph the bottom because it's really ugly. Maybe I find something to improve it but for now this is the result. Enjoy.

A small one-engined speeder with two seats and nothing more. It's made for fun, cruising down the streets of Coruscant or highspeed races over the wide deserts on Tattooine.

I just saw this on flickr and thought - why hasn't he posted it?
And you just did :laugh:
Good job - it's very Nabooish in my opinion.

And helped in that regard by the fact that he used the printed Naboo writing tile.

Pretty nice job, Plissken. Shaping is nice.

My thoughts exactly.

Looking good, I like the yellow and Tan, it's a great combo. Nice job  :thumbup:

I'm not familiar with the printed yellow control panel, but, I guess I'm wrong :blush: .

I really like this speeder a lot Plissken, I think the yellow color scheme look rather good for a Coruscant vehicle, with nice highlights of tan and dark bley. The overall shape is very sleek too. Great job! :thumbup:

Very much Naboo style over it as Kim said.
A nice little speeder, and I like the differnt colours of the "hood" and also that printed yellow slope you used
in the cockpit. Very well!

Great shape!  The color of it makes it possible to put in either environment.  Though I think it'd be a bit more bit up if it was on Tattooine. :wink:   Nice work just the same! :thumbup:

Thank you all for your comments.
All parts are official. The printed piece in the cockpit says "Mission Deep Sea", it was available in the Alpha Team theme. As far as the mentioned printing goes, don't look to close at every detail  :laugh:

It looks really nice and aerodinamic.

You have find a good use for yellow pieces that appear in to many sets. :thumbup:
