Alternate 6208 idea#2 Rebel Dragonfly
Rebel Dragonfly. Alternative 6208.
About this creation
An original MOC using parts only from set 6208. A one-man unarmed reconnaissance ship used by the rebel alliance. This swift and agile craft is used not only to scout out possible locations for rebel redoubts and bases but also to gather intelligence on Imperial forces and any strengths/weaknesses. It's powerful repulsors (the sting in the tail) enable this ship to both hover and fly at right angles. Darting in, out and around enemy bases and ships, the Dragonfly deftly avoids Imperial laser cannon fire (since their targeting systems are designed to track constantly moving targets) while it's sensors (or eyes) aquire vital data.

   Made a couple of clunky bots to help service it.

   The droid on the left looks like something outta 'Lost in Space'...

   3/4 view in flight. The wings are based on the same princple of the X-wing and aerlier ARC-175, acting to dissipate excess heat.

   Sorry about the blurryness.

   Rear 3/4 view from above. You can get a good idea of the proportions here.

   The 'eyes' or forward sensors swing aside to give the canopy clearence to open.

   There are two small thrusters either side of the main engines for micro-manovouring.

   Hmmm, could've used an astromech somewhere-if I had one. Any suggestions?

Way better than the first one, obviously, it's already totally cool !

I would say take one engine off, or mount them side-by-side instead of over/under. It's not that I have anything against over/under shotguns (I think they're quite cool), but the engine just sticks out too much. The eyes, though, are cool. I like the striped tail effect given in some of the pics. 2:What is blue?

good work, although i must say it does not look very practical, but with that aside the shape is very original and you pulled off the dragonfly shape well

Fantastic arthropomorphasization from the design of the real creature! Looks like it'd be light, highly manueverable and a damned nuissance to the dark side as it spies on those pesky imperial forces!!!!
