[MOD/MOC] Darth Vader's Sith Interceptor

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, i wanted to show of my project from this week.

After seeing the leaked sets for next year, it dawned on me that i didnt have an Eta-2 yet, even though i really like the ship. Closer examination of Obi-wan's version yielded that that version is changed from the current one (75038), and imho, not in a good way, and since i dislike anakin, i figured i should just make my own. (also, Ive been reading Tarkin and now the Rise of Lord Vader novels by James Luceno, in both novels Vader flies a black Eta-2)

Essentially my craft is mostly just anakin's yellow one, color shifted to black/grey, but i think it came out really well, it is easily my favorite lego star fighter now (toppling 8017 from the throne)

Excellent look.

Not having the interceptor myself, is the canopy from anikin set? Or is that also a replacement? Did you order the parts?

Thanks guys!

Looks nice. But personally, I would have put more black. The grey almost looks white next to the black. But that's just me.

I didnt want to black the ship out on purpose, all the full-black models ive seen (hasbro stuff) also have the S-foils and cockpit black (or very dark grey), and those parts arent available in that color, so i figured id rather go for some extra grey on the body to tie it all together, and have a semi-interesting pattern on the wings, then have a grey cockpit, black wings, grey S-foils type thing

Excellent look.

I ordered all the parts from Bricklink, but im sure the cockpit come from the anakin set, since i used that part list as a template, and the specific part number for the cockpit only appears in that set (it must be slightly different from the green one from 2012)

I did one of these a while back when set 9494 came out. This looks good too, I did stick with mostly black though. Nice job keep up the good work.
