The Starwing II is a massive remake of the Starwing I, and only its fuselage maintains parts-commonality with the original. It features 1) forward-swept 2) downward-bent wings, 3) a retractable missile launcher, 4) a compact rotating bomb rack with 6 ammo, 5) swiveling wing cannons, 6) a backwards canopy, and 7) rotating gattling cannons. The bent-wing design you can likely figure out from the pics; simply make sure to place the hinges such that you can work around the fractional-stud offsets they create. The swept wing design, however, is not so obvious: it uses 1x1 round plates to offset the wings in just such a way as to allow the wings to fit at an angle. It's much more efficient than the 2x2 turntable plates that I used to use. I'll say no more for fear of leaking my trade secrets. >:D
About this creation

Bombs are loaded into here...

...and are rotated out from here. Also visible is the retracted missile launcher.

This is the launcher extended.

Loaded and ready!

That's the cockpit view.

This is a view of how the weapons and wings are attached.
