This week, I'd like to show another famous freighter to you. We've rcently seen Han Solo's Millennium Falcon, and now it's time for Dash Rendar's Outrider, a YT-2400 transport (reference link). The ship first appears in "Shadows of the Empire", an exciting novel taking place between "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi", but was later included in the Special Edition of "A New Hope". It there can be seen taking off from Mos Eisley Spaceport on Tattooine.
The YT-2400 is an asymmetric design with unique shape. To realise the two laser turrets (as for the Millennium Falcon), a stud inversion was neccesary. This was realised by using hooks which are one plate high. The ball at the end of the hook disappears nicely into the stud notches. As a nice side feature, they add a greebly effect.
With that I am done for today.
Thanks for stepping by, and have a great week!
