My entry for the 2012 Moccer Paired Contest. Topic: Episode 1. Category: Vehicles. I know the color isn't quite right, so I spent most of my time getting the shape of the body proportionate. My partner is Commander Hawk. Let's check out the moc.
About this creation
SW Moccer Paired Contest group homepage.

My partner Commander Hawk .

The Variable Geometry Self-Propelled Battle Droid, Mark I (also known as the Vulture-class droid starfighter or simply as the Vulture droid) was a droid starfighter used by the Trade Federation. Later, in much greater numbers, it was utilized by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. It participated heavily in the Clone Wars, at engagements such as the Battle of Kamino and Coruscant.

Info taken from Wookieepedia.

I didn't have enough tan and brown to build it to Episode 1 colors, but I feel like I did good.

To The Moc!



In flight mode. (Left)



Flight Mode (Right).



Flight Mode (Back).



Front close-up.



The joint configuration I used to build my Vulture.



I do have small claws on it, and the printed piece was added for detail (what a shame that I don't own 2 more!).



Close-up of the guns. I think I did quite well on these, although they may be a tad too big.



Left Side (Walking Mode).



Back View (Walking Mode).



Right side (Walking Mode).



Close-up of the head. I don't have any of the official Vulture's so I had to make do with my Hyena-class Droid Bomber stickers.



Front view with the tiny guns/proton torpedo tubes. Pew Pew!



Close-up of the back.



I decided to make a small dio with the Vulture in it. Here, 3 Naboo Royal Security guards attempt to ambush 4 droids and the Vulture who are taking prisoners.



Overview of the diorama.



The prisoners. 1 Gungan, and 3 Naboo civilians.



Another overview of the dio.



This picture was taken without my normal setup. I was experimenting with lighting and adjustments on my computer.

This was a great build for me. Getting the shape of everything was easy, but connecting it was tough. Luckily, my design held up for the pictures, only to fall apart when I picked it up. I think I did great!

Good luck to all of the other contestants!

C & C is appreciated/suggested!

KP out!

Quoting Mark Murphy Your score is: 80/100
Well? I thought that it would be higher. This thing is EXTREMELY accurate (except for the color), what's with the low score? What did I need to improve on?

It looks quite wide, doesn't it? In overall, it's great! But i think it's a little bit to wide. Maybe two studs?

The Vulture is very accurate apart from the colours and the extra scene will give you a higher score. I will give you a 97/100

This is not bad. The whole thing is nicely detailed, but the legs seem a bit short and the body seems a bit long. This is definitely not a bad creation though.

Quoting Space Gypsy . Impressive. I don't mind about the colours, but I think that the legs are slightly short.
Agreed, that has been bugging me lately. :/

Yeah, the colors bug me. If I had enough tan and brown it would have been even better! Thanks for the very generous score!
