Likely Brickwright's.  His is excellent, I have it on display.  I'd say they are on par with each other.

Yes, It was brickwrights. Quite good, the cockpit is supreme. A bit weak on the engines though, but easy fix.

Which one, if I may ask?

Just out of curiosity... Has there ever been a thread about what is ok to sell and what is not?

For instance, one could argue that selling instructions to build star wars MOCs infringes on Disney's intellectual property. What about reverse engineering someone else's MOC, and selling the instructions? The original MOCer does not own the intellectual property, so if he doesn't share/sell instructions, could he rightfully complain?

Note to Jerac; I have no intention whatsoever to reverse engineer your MOCs, I'm not insane. 

I'll preface this by saying that I've bought a few of Jerac's instructions and would like to get Kit Bricksto's Tantive IV instructions at some point. I consider their work to be very impressive and their instructions are good value.

I would be surprised if MOC designers that sell instructions aren't breaking copyright laws. Given Lucas' attitude towards Mad Magazine, Robot Chicken and other parodies I would assume that he would be flattered that people are dedicated enough to build replicas of his work. Disney's lawyers may have a different view but it isn't worth the time, effort and negative PR associated with threatening legal action against hobbyists.

Hi,
I tried to redesigne Jerac's Y-wing's cockpit a bit and could use some help with it. First of all I have to say it's a pity they don't make the 'Windscreen 4 x 4 Roll Cage' in sand blue, and for that I had to change the color of the cockpit top part to light grey. But my biggest problem is, that I'm missing one pair of side windows and I can't figure out how to include them in my design. Now I'm using 'Slope 45 4 x 4 Double with hinge as my cockpit roof/hatch, but it obviously does'n have those much desired side windows. I'm extremely open to design suggestions with this. Thank you.

I'd just try black stickers on the sides, if you wish to have this opening. And perhaps a 2x4 tile on top of that.
