Boba's Heavy B-Wing

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

So this is a mash-up of Renegade Clone's B-Wing (70%), Xiei22's B-Wing and 75050, with a few bits of my own (the chunky 1980's-looking bits).

****

After a short stay, Boba is regurgitated by the Sarlaac, his armour bleached by the digestive juices. He needs a new ship since Slave 1 has been stolen in the meantime by some Weequay Pirates. Thankfully, the Jawas owe him a debt and furnish him with a modified, heavy B-Wing.

This version can land on its back instead of its side, for quick getaways.

It comes with storage for your personal possessions (this scene is not real - it is Boba daydreaming about former glories)...

...as well as an astomech housing compartment. The astomech was thrown in for free.

The space for all this is achieved by replacing the normal four engines with two high-powered Rodian power units.

The cockpit has been altered to fit two people, but Boba tends to fly alone and slouch back.

The casing has been removed from the high-powered lasers on the wing tips, to avoid over-heating.

Flying in the outer-rim.

Manoueverability is good. Bit hard to spell.

Customer satisfaction.

Very fun and sleek, I like the color scheme and overall bulkiness!  Good job overall, I'm a sucker for hidden compartments.

I really like it! I love the blue stripes and the ships design the most. Something tells me that you used some U-Wing parts......I wonder what it was:look:

Yes, an unfortunate U-Wing was sacrificed for this project! The official U-Wing set is a nice, sturdy toy to play with, but I had found it increasingly dull and boxy as a display piece.

As an aside, here is a comparison to Boba's original ship...

Really like your Slave 1 mods! Did you make that before the release of 75243?

Hi, thanks. I made the Slave 1 mods after the 75234 picture leaks came out but before the official pictures were released (I think!). Link to Slave 1 post is here, if it works...

strange mods of slave1 great job

Thanks! Again, credit to Renegade Clone for the structural principles and Xiei22 for the great weapon ideas.

While we're here, these are a couple of earlier shapes and colours I rejected. 

This one was too red - it looked more like a rebel ship than a bounty hunter craft;

This one was...too much like a Dutch football sock;
