Skywalker Class Stafighter

Hello all, this is my first post, so be kind. It's my interpretation of a new class of New Republic heavy starflighter that I've classified as Skywalker Class in honour of the BofY and also the significant contribution that he made to it's design. I thought about calling it a W-Wing, but then I thought that the 'Wing' designation was getting a bit old hat. I've tried to keep update the starfighter style in line with the direction things seem to have been going with the A-Wing (in my view the last true SF design). I tried to reduce the side profile to make it more stealthy. I've thought about how to improve durability in space combat and I've protected the engines inside the spaceframe and covered the recess for the R2 Unit accordingly. It has four heavy turbo lasers and six torpedos, two of whih are rear facing, as well as a bank of rear facing lasers for that extra suprise. A prototype built to production standards, this is Luke's personal starfighter. Later versions may be sligtly smaller. I think that it works better than the ugly E-Wing which to me looks like a regression in design rather than an advance. It was built in December 2010 when I got my lego out again for the first time in decade after I had a big knee op.

Smart design which corrects one of the evident weaknesses in the many pre-exsisting star wars 1/2 seater fighter class vessals
