This is a model based on Draez's model. I came across his brickshelf folder sometime in 2006.
As soon as I saw the available LDR files I knew I had to build the model. What ensued was my first and only large scale lego project. I learnt the basics of ldraw to make out the construction and found a lot of clipping sections and parts that I did not have access to, so I changed quite a few things internally both to substitute parts and improve stability while still trying to maintain the shaping. About a year later I was done with model and since 2008 the strike freedom has stood on my shelf.
Its missing 4 of its 8 dragoon and the colour scheme makes no sense but I'm quite proud of it.
I'll be moving this year, so I thought that I'd take a few photos and share them before I packing it.
