I am new to signing up to Eurobricks, but have been a lurker for a long time. I built Mirko's U-Wing and it did cost a bit, like many here the pain of Last Jedi impacted my like of the ships, but Mirko's Bomber is amazing!
If it helps, I am nearly done sourcing the bricks for the silencer and I will spend under $300. If I had more patience, could have shaved off some additional cost as well. I would not rate the cost of these MOC's based of off the U-wing, he has done an even better job limiting expensive parts in my opinion. I'll probably take the plunge on the bomber as well when the time comes.
