About this creation
The B-wing/C2 starfighter, aka the B-wing contingent starfighter, is an alternative model crafted from set 6208 and entered into the corresponding FBTB contest.

   The B-wing contingent is a variant of the B-wing fighter created to compensate for the original B-wing’s notoriously difficult controls. For this purpose, the B-wing contingent no longer features the rotational gyrostabilization system and includes stabilizer fins to achieve facilitated controlling of the craft. Also new to this variant B-wing is the introduction of the thruster fin, whose addition ensures maneuverability on the vertical plane. A primary element of the B-wing is retained: its undeniably superior array of assault weapons. In fact, the B-wing contingent features the same weapons strategically placed at the same locations on the C2 as the original B-wing.

   Note the position of the thruster fin and the stabilizer fins.

   Now see that the fins shift positions to accomodate maneuvering requirements.

   The cockpit is capable of "nodding". It is centered on the tan outline that marks the end of the fuselage.

   The hull of the ship is capable of holding cargo just like the original B-wing.

   A panel opens to reveal the cargo. The opening mechanism will remain a secret for now. However, it is posible that I may make instructions for this model since the pieces are easy to obtain.

   Without the station/display stand, the model is still capable of standing upright.

   The internal hull reveals two weapons generator channels for the tail guns. Pilots slang them the ureters, imagine the other.

   Lastly, observe the fascinating geometry of the B-wing contingent. The sketch is based off that of the Vitruvian Man.

Nannan, that's a nice, clean build, and certainly an interesting model. However, the overall look doesn't do it for me; somehow the ship looks quite unwieldy to me, especially with the nodding cockpit on top. Also, the overall cockpit 'head' is a prominent part of the ship, yet it feels a bit plain compared to the rest of the nicely decorated wings. Anyways, that's just my opinion. The platform you built goes very well with the ship, and that Vitruvian Man pic is quite amusing. Looking forward to more of your original and quality builds!

Crikey this is one crazy machine - I love the cockpit idea - it must be just sickening to fly!?! Probably reserved only for a handful of elite pilots?

I like weird stuff, but this thing might be a little too weird for me. It took me a while to even figure it out! Still, it's certainly impressive. Nice job on the stand too. I have to ask though, why are there no pictures of the pilot in the cockpit? I couldn't find any.

These entries keep getting better. Your entry, by far, is one of the more creative interpretations. Well thought out design, excellent construction within parts limitation, even inclusion of a rubber band holder as a functional piece of equipment. The stand is well done and could easily be a part of an official set. Well played Nannan, this is definately a top contender. One gripe; while I can appreciate the cockpit position, it's placement seems tenuous. It looks like any hard turns would send it flying off the ship.
