V9 Nek Starfighter V2.
The Original V9 Nek Starfighter, in all it's glory. Cardin Asgard pilots his V9 along with the rest of Fang Squadron. Just off the assembly line, his ship still smells of lubricants and new plasteel. The controls, as ergonomic as he had ever used, felt easy in his grasp. When he took off, he found that the thrust was impressive for a fighter this size. He soared out of the hanger bay and into the battle...
About this creation

During the conflict with the ancient Sith Empire, 3000 years BBY, This beauty was responsible for many a Sith death. Cardin Asgard, a battle-hardened, veteran pilot, stands next to his new ship.


The cockpit now utilizes my standard design. Also, notice the communications suite nestled between the aft stabilizers.


The undercarriage had the most rework. Unfortunately, The design was too compact to allow for working landing gear, something I really wanted to incorporate. Instead, I had to settle with removeable gear.


I tried keeping some aspects of the original design intact. However, I felt it was too clunky overall. I wanted as few studs as possible. I also felt that a refreshing white/dark red color scheme would better connect with the Republic.


The Republic found that though not a militaristic force, these fighters were quite hardy, and it was a shame they were lost in history...


I wanted the color scheme to very "Old Republic", and the overal redesign to be very mechanical, yet with a fluidity.


This side view gives a good representation of what made the overall design of the first version so special.


This rear-quarter shot is nice. Shows off the lines, gives a good feel. Those wheel hubs make excellent thrusters, I have used them on 3 craft now. I originally was inspired by the large wheel hubs. They just scream, "THRUSTER".




I like this shot. Sith learned to respect the crews of V9 Fighter squadrons, and the name Nek actually came from the Sith, as the fighter pilots were tenacious, and the fighters themselves vicious.


I actually constructed landing gear for this craft, I usually don't.


The rear went through MANY iterations. I am not the best greebler, as many of you know. I like clean models, so I try to "design out" greebling. I finally settled on this design, and I am very happy with it.
