I thought I'd take a break from figure building to return to the original thing that got me moccing in the first place: mini SW vehicles. Also, it's been a year since I've built anything in the Steampunk Star Wars (or Steam Wars) theme. As with all my builds, I tried to add as much detail as possible. The wings rotate, the boarding ramp opens underneath, and the front opens to reveal a hidden cannon! Also, I do plan on building this in minifig scale at some point. As always, please RATE and COMMENT!:)

Haha this is brilliant. Love those 'wings'
Thanks, mate! When I build in Steampunk, I always try to imagine how each part would function in real life. In this case, how would the ship fly and stay in the air? The best conclusion would be that it flies like a helicopter and the blades would be on the wings.

Why doesn't this have more comments? Awesome idea, much better than trying to accurately recreate the actual Slave 1, because this looks great for it's own merits and your own design!
Thanks! I have built various mini versions of Slave 1 in the past, but I wanted to challenge myself to build something different.
