[LDD MOC] Delta-7 Aethersprite Interceptor
Posted 05 June 2012 - 03:30 AM
The Delta-7 is an interesting starfighter. It's a mixture of curves and angles, easier to shape than the N-1 (though not as easy as any of the TIEs I've done), but it's quite compact. The angles of the SNOT wings were a lot more difficult than I thought they would be to line up in LDD. As with the N-1, I decided to go with the opaque, solid cockpit instead of transparent and suitable for a minifig. It just gave me a lot more options when it came to lining everything up in LDD. I love the way the ducts on the back portions of the wings turned out.
Looking at some source material, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the trailing edges of the wings are actually quite thick. That made it a lot easier to work in the engines. (though the bottom of the model is still pretty messy)
I didn't get in as much lime green as I would have liked to, and I'm not satisfied with the gaps in the wings and nose, but, overall, I'm satisfied with the model. Certainly more satisfied than I was with the N-1.

That plate is 2x4, and the nose is around 3-wide at most at that area.
