X-84 is a Bounty Hunter droid. His spacefighter is a modified version of a stolen A-Wing and is equipped with two  rapid-fire cannons, a double class engine and two sublight boosters.

Nice design. :thumbup:
Maybe try not make it look like everything was placed upon the wings but incorporate them in the design?
Keep up the good work.

Not bad 'Lord Of The Fries', I do feel there is also too much grey and bottom is quite ugly....but on the other hand - the bounty hunter is no beauty queen ! :laugh:
I wish you luck and may the brick be with you always 'The Lord Of Fries' ! :grin:

One can do what one can... :wink:

Although I do like the modified A-wing concept, the engines could have been executed better. Perhaps you could attach them to the dark green structure rather than having them plopped onto some plates. Actually, now that I think about it, getting rid of the plates and rounding out the bottom with some sloped bricks might look good as well.

I too think the bottom could do with some work. But it's not uncommon for TLG to leave the undersides unfinished. IMO you should either work more on the bottom or just remove the image - there's no point drawing extra attention to an area that's not the 'spotlight of the ship'.  :wink:

Good idea Praiter Yed :wink:
I have removed the image and I am going to work on the bottom but not for the competition just for fun  :grin:
