This is particularly interesting to me as aside form my entry I've been trying to build a 74-Z speeder and have toyed with the idea of using 1 stud thickness at the front. I've been looking at using curved slopes and didn't even consider using the 1 x 1 slope which works really well here.
I really like your nose section - you have been successful in creating a sleek and compact look. I also like your innovative part usage in creating the pedals and the way you have used the binoculars to hold the outriggers. But, IMHO your success with the nose section has caused two slight problems:
1. The rear seems overly long, I think if you could fit your back-pack/blanket on top rather than hanging off the rear this would tighten it up. Despite TLGs instance on hanging the back-pack off the back in the film they are
2. Again because you have been so successful with the compact front section, the steering vanes look too large IMO. Maybe a 1 x 1 modified tile with clip
would work here? I don't see this as being any more or less accurate than the traditional triangular road sign.
These are just my opinions and perhaps you disagree, overall I think this is a nice speeder and to be honest I might have to 'borrow'
some of your ideas on the version I am currently working on.
