Its certainly unusual badgerboy. Built from whats left at Hoth, am I correct?
Good luck with the comp.

This is brilliant. I think the guns on the AT-ST head are too short, but I guess that would detract from the guns of the T-47 if they were longer, and with a backstory like yours, anything could happen. :laugh: But my favorite part by far is the incorporation of the T-47's radiator grille into the back of the AT-ST. It looks perfect. :wub:

Excellent! You ignored the urge to just use two fighters, very cool.

That's best entry yet in the competition.
Good luck, my entry won't be as half as good. :sad:

Gee, I didn't know they had Monster Garage on Hoth ! :laugh:
Excellent designing - a fusion of a Rebel snowspeeder and an Imperial AT-ST....sheer genius ! :grin:
Good luck in the contest 'Badgerboy' and may the brick be with you ! :grin:

This is awesome, such a creative idea. You executed blending the two vehicles perfectly. Good luck in the contest, not that you'll need it  :wink:

Very interesting entry badgerboy, who would've thought that the wacky idea of combining of a T-47 and an AT-ST would look this good. Very nicely done and good luck in the contest! :thumbup:

Jaw-droppingly good work - you have every right to feel chuffed; well done there! The idea is really clever, and the execution very well done. A good "ugly" isn't about merely smashing two sets together, it's about integrating them in a way that looks weird but makes sense, like what you've done here.
