Hello there!

Here is my second iteration of one of my favorite ships of Star Wars -- the Delta-7 Aethersprite Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter.  

@khatmorg & @atlas_er are big influences on this design -- especially the cockpit area of @khatmorg's, and the wings by @atlas_er. Biggest difference in mine is the overall length; it's shorter by two studs (which I think is more accurate).  Making it a little smaller in comparison, but still has a lot of detail.

Overall I'm really happy with how it came out.  I tried my best to eliminate all gaps, and make it smooth as possible.  I've very proud of the green accent on the back wings, and how I was able to keep the front wing/hood area smooth.

The only thing I'm bummed about is that I couldn't squeeze in rear landing gear, but I love how the smooth underside came out.  And the little bit of stickering on the back section to better convey the curve of the green. 

It's quite sturdy, but it does have some weakish points in the design.  

Thanks for checking it out!

Always have to applaud a build that puts proper effort into the underside.

Fantasic MOC. The underside is great, the shaping is great and that centre section is just *chef's kiss*!

This is really well done, just a bit smaller than most Delta-7 mocs but the perfect size, overall small flat and sleek like it appears when Obi-Wan is standing beside it on Geonosis. Great job :)

Really nice work on this, like the Hasbro version the engines were the rear stand!
The smooth underside looks fantastic

Amazing work! Do you plan to create instructions for this build?

Maybe -- I would consider it if I got enough requests.

This topic has only just come to my attention but I’m always a fan of a nice Aethersprite. Congrats on a great build. So glad the introduction of new pieces has enabled better color blocking. Great MOC and thanks for sharing!
