The E-Wing is one of my favourite Legends EU ships. I made this one by building the cockpit and nose from the Resistance X-Wing, a custom body and nose, and the basic wing structure from Jek 14's Stealth Starfighter. The only major problems I'm having with the build so far are that Stud.io is currently lacking the new windscreen, which I think is necessary for the shape, and I can't tell if certain hinge connections would work in reality. Below is the wing connection I'm unsure about. It looks like the larger hinges should be able to join up to the small one at the top, while the clip hinges below hold the wing. But I'm not sure if the third stud down on the wing is actually obstructing the yellow section of the hinge. I'll be grateful if anyone can give me some tips. :) UPDATE: It lives! For the most part, I'm happy with how it turned out, but there are some modifications I'll have to make, specifically to how the engines are held together inside, and the landing gear. The axles inside the engines seem to be at the wrong length ratio, so the front can easily be knocked off. The landing gear is just badly designed, and I might have to completely rework it. As you can see, I'm missing a 3L bar on the front skid, I got a 4L bar by accident. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Otherwise, the front would be ok. The back skids need a less flexible framework, and one of the clips collides with the skid underneath. The cannons aren't quite as long as intended, it turns out the pin hole on the end of the 3L technic pins with an axle holder end aren't the right shape for connecting bars, so that's another thing that I might alter, but it doesn't detract from the look of it. Apart from those the only thing I'd like to change is that the only thing holding the nose is a pair of technic pin bricks, but it's not too wobbly. The lid for the astromech compartment comes off easily enough, though the 1x4 bricks sometimes need pressing back on. :) Booty shot:
Hello EB community! My entry for the SWEU Contest (Category: Starships) is the E-Wing Starfighter. Commissioned by the New Republic during the Thrawn campaign as a replacement for the X-Wing, the E-Wing remained in service until after the Yuuzhan Vong War. E-Wings were often carried into battle by Endurance-class Fleet Carriers, MC90 Star Cruisers and Imperial-II-class Star Destroyers. Since the NJO novels aren't eligible for the contest, this fighter is active during the Black Fleet Crisis, particularly the Battle of ILC-905.
