One of the most challenging things is trying to fix something that the Lego designers did not put into a set. Or more so, just going for a cheeper and easier route. I found this out after buying the new V-wing on Black Friday. I unfortuently could not stand the thought of having a ship that landed by facing the tip of its blaster barrels downward into the ground/mud/dirt/ect. I had somewhat of a design before I bought the set... but a few weeks ago, I decided to fix it somewhat so my design was not so bulky as it looked before.
This is the result which I am happy with. Even though it is a pretty easy to break design, I would think that would be just like the origional as it is just an interceptor. One good shot would take out the ship anyways I would think.
Some real Legos now!
24MAY14- New updates... changed the cockpit and the wing details. No more yellow glass!
Missing the new V-wing... but LEGO can never decide which way they want to fold the wings.
Quoting Vitor Faria
Loved the color scheme, and the fact that the wings fold correctly even at this small scale.
Thank you! Only downside is that they are flimsy. But after some changes I managed to fix that. They just look more bulky. I guess you can call it more of a modification as I did not touch or change the cockpit.
