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!

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

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*!

Thank you all for the positive feedback!

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

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

Consider this as another request, the build is just amazing

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!

Hello, I'm not sure if you're still around, but wanted to say that I'm also interested in any instructions or ldd

Hi there -- I don't have a plan to make instructions for this model.  However, I recently bought the new 3x3 curved slope corner pieces to redo the back of the tail area, which lead to me doing a complete overhaul of the model.  The wings and undercarriage stayed relatively untouched, but I revamped the cockpit and tail areas.  I was going to do a new post about it, but haven't gotten around to it yet. 

Here are a few pics -- I'm still tinkering with a couple things inside the cockpit, but I'm getting close to being done.  I can't promise instructions anytime soon, but once I finish the instructions on my ETA-2 model I will start on this one.

I really do like the use of the 3x3 curved slope from the space shuttle. It's basically a part that screams perfect for this application. And I'm loving the upgrades to the cockpit area. It looks even more sleek than it did before

I had found your pictures on flicker of your previous version that you took while building. Gave some good insight on some of what you did for building. I ended up deciding to see what I could do with those pictures in studio and had some success, but had to make some guesses for the main body to get by. Some of the build techniques in the cockpit area took quite some time to ensure they didn't cause collision errors. Still haven't attempted the undercarriage, engines, and the bottom half of the tail fin.

Having it sit next to the khatmorg model really showcases some of the changes you made that I really like. The lime green markings near the nose, the shorter length, and the changed wings all look very nice. And now with your reworked cockpit area, you've even added the red markings which is a detail my mind has always glossed over until now. Very well done incorporating it!
