Hello everybody,

Today I would like to present you my Lego Y-wing.

This model is based on Lego UCS version 10134 Y-wing. Lego has done really good job designing it and I thought I could improve it a little bit (hope I have succeeded).  

So much for the introduction, now let´s look at the pictures!

The cockpit looks a bit small but other than that you have done a really great job. Well done. :thumbup:

I agree with Cavedog.

There are a few bits I like but you've made it worse.

I am guessing here but you don't have the actual set right? If that is the case then it is a pretty good MOC. :thumbup:  

If you are working from the original UCS set (which was amazing anyway! :wub: ) then I have to agree with some of the others and you have made it worse not better.

Great work.  The second picture looked odd, like that Y-wing was flying sideway at high rate of speed. :D

I thought that as well. I do agree the actual set was better, but still better than any of my mocs.
I do like the detail you put into it.  :classic:

Though not screen accurate it does look like a Rebel technician could easily have modified an existing Y-Wing to perform some new role.

Not bad Y-wing 'Trooper 278' :classic: , by the looks of your Y-wing it's seen many a Rebel mechanic right ? :laugh:
Is this a single seater or twin seater ? :wink:

Looks nice! I like your modifications!

Thanks guys,

well I know it is not as good as official lego set (in the fact I wouldn ´t even want it to be, because rebel fleet wasn´t perfect right? :D), but I thought I could bring back the "classic feeling" of star wars, my apologise if I have failed in that....

to lightningtiger- yes it has :D, it is single seater.

I can see a lot of your signature SNOTing in this creation, which isn't bad except for the fact that it could be a bit less studded in certain areas. Both Gareth's and OceanBlue's UCS Y-wings used prefab rounded corner pieces for the engine nacelles. More on this later.

Proportions are the other major issue to be addressed. There's a good ortho shot of Gold Five (actually Gold Two) here.
