Absolutely great, a great counterpart to the Fury.
Though I never understood why the game had a Shuttle (Fury), Corvette (Defender), Escort (Thunder Clap), Transport (Mantis) all as equivalent ships :wacko:.

Excellent build! The similarity between it and your source material is impressive  :thumbup:

Huh? Since when did the Fury become a shuttle? :wacko:  According to the SW:TOR website and Wookieepedia the Fury is a multi-purpose warship/transport. The Thunderclap is classified as an assault ship on both websites, and the Mantis is described as a patrol/picket ship. That makes them all more or less equivalent, though i admit that if game mechanics hadn't been involved these ships probably would have differed a lot more in their role, characteristics and performance.

Excellent job! :thumbup: The color scheme is nice, and it's even better that you built it out of real bricks.  Very definitely one of my favorite good-guy ships.

Just going by the size of the Fury it's definitely too small to be warship. The actual definition of the ships is irrelevant. Most of them are small Falcon sized ships, supposedly equivalent to the Corvette sized Defender.

Awesome rendition.

Crews at least 8, having played the game you get 5 companions, your shipboard droid, yourself, and an astromech.  There's talk of a hunter killer droid joining your party but I haven't played since April.

This looks very accurate to the original!  Definitely has a "real set" look to it.  I love the shaping and little details throughout. :thumbup:

Very nice rendition, maybe could have been a lil more sleeker? Qyzen Fess looks great and can almost pass as an official figure  :thumbup:

I think this is an absolutely wonderful design. I'm usually quite particular about which projects I support on Cuusoo, but I had no hesitation in voting for this. I really enjoyed the Fury class Interceptor model released earlier this summer and this would make an ideal companion set.

What I like so much about this is not only how well you have recreated the Corellian Defender but how much it actually looks like a Lego set. Unlike many Cuusoo projects I think this could be turned into a set with little difficulty. I will be keeping an eye on this and sincerely hope you get to 10,000 votes.

Thank you very much.  Many of you might know that I have a blog where I talk about Cuusoo projects.  So when I hear people say this looks like a real set it means a lot.  

Cheers!

You are totally right about the "sleekness" of the build.  The sleekness is one of the factors I sacrificed to allow for greater accuracy in other aspects of the build.  It was very hard to give up on.  

The curvature of the front was an aspect I worked on several times, and that really defined the minimum "height" of the ship.  

That being said.  I used profiles designs of the defender and the overall dimensions of the ship are very accurate.

Of course, this is a fictional model so some presentation of it appear even thinner and longer than others.  In the long run, Fitting the minifigs demands the wider build so I consider it rather serendipitous that it turned out this way.

Wow nice work! I really hope LEGO makes one of these seeing as how this is the ship I used most often so far in the game (have a level 50 Knight and level 22 Consular).

Thank you very much.  I would be very appreciative if you could mention the project in the official SWTOR forums.  I don't have an account (my computer is not good enough for the game) so I can't post there.  

Cheers!

It's been posted in a topic about the SWTOR Lego sets, I also believe a different site about SWTOR also made an article about it.

As to your ship, I raise you this.

That looks amazing! I wish they released that alongside the Fury instead of the Striker-class starfighter.
