GAT 12j Skipray Blastboat
About this creation
Yes, for a change I built a ship with its own specific category. Presenting my Sienar Fleet Systems GAT 12j skipray blastboat built using images from Kenix Kil, the Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels, and words from the classic novel Heir to the Empire. The skipray was commissioned and built around the time of the Battle of Yavin. It is famous for its use by smugglers, mercenaries, pirates, and scoundrels of every kind. The blastboat possessed a rotating laser turret, two laser cannons, three capitol ship medium ion cannons, and a magazine of 25 warheads, some concussion and some proton. It was 25m long and crewed by four individuals: the pilot who gets the cockpit all to himself, a sensor officer\copilot, and two gunners, who occupy the tech\weapons area directly behind the cockpit. My skipray is 13 minifigures long from stem to stern. Reference image compliments of wookipedia.

Do you like the landing gear?

The pirates who own this little skipray have captured the son of a wealthy Corporate Sector boss and are keeping him in the cargo hold for ransom. Naturally, he is not too happy about that.

If the Imperial authorities come snooping than the floor can drop out of the cargo hold to dump any illegal cargo. My friend Derek and I decided to ditch the oft-used Imperial theme and fallow the pirate mania that is sweeping America. So here are our crew of independent star pirates, the Drexel Gang.

From left to right, Captain Tiraff Yun: Pilot and leader. Once he was employed by the pirate Kybo Renn before that he was a collector of Jedi artifacts like his lightwhip. Keterak Shayy: Gunner and demolitionist. A half crazy fish dude I made up out of pure whimsy. Deirdre Fegnn: Copilot and medic. A Former Lorrdian bio-scientist with a taste for Tenloss disruptor rifles. Tarein Numb: Gunner and gunslinger. Once a conman than a mercenary for Sorosub Corp. NOTE: The above characters are the product of fansí imaginations, they are not official elements of Star Wars.



REPLIES:



Sam Parkhouse, all respect to you and the estimible Mr. Scorp, his is indeed FAR cooler and more original. The thing I almost always aim for is accuracy, other attractions are bonuses. A good example would be my TIE Raptor; it's accurate and that's about it. I think Scorp's STingray is slightly inaccurate, since it is his modified vehicle. Still, you have brought up the fact, I need a better color scheme...dark blue and bluish dark grey would be nice.

This is pretty cool. Certainly alot more acurate than most of the other blastboats I've seen. The most impressive part is that you've actually got the size right, unlike most other people (including me).

i was thinking, if you got rid of the back tail bit, and the side wings, added a new tail (smallish) and engines on the sides (big) it would look like the Sherperd in Battlefield 2142 :D!

As Luigi said once, "oh, gnarly!" This boat is really detailed, but to see an even better one, go see Justin "Saber-Scorpion" Stebbins. His is incredible, too.

Hats off to you. I think you got the overall shape a bit better than I did. The back wings are really nice!!
