About this creation
UPDATE: These new photos are after a complete refurbish, and the discovery of additional information on this craft. The inscription of V9 Nek was uncovered. Enjoy these museum photos.


While on an expedition into the Unknown Regions, the crew of the Esplorazione discovered this Old Republic fighter drifting in open space. It had been drifting for over 4500 years! The crew brought the relic aboard and studied it. Unfortunately, no information was left in its banks, but after a little work, the ship's technician was able to bring one of the sublight engines online. But the crew was puzzled. How did it get there? Where was the missing pilot? Where was it based? Only time will tell...

Side shot of the craft. The new charcoal canopy I got works better with this model than the clear one.








I swapped the black angled plates for some dark gray ones, and it really compliments the scheme.








The same, really.








Top view. I also swapped out the curved piece behind the canopy as well. I like this much better, it fits the curves more appropriately.








And there you have it, the new and improved Nek Fighter. Thanks to George Bush for the name, but you all had super names! You will see a Sadow's Ember soon!





From the old version of the model...







Rear quarter view of the craft. You can see the sensor/communication array on the port side.








A starboard profile shot. The white "spots" used to have markings of the Republic, but even space couldn't preserve them.








A head-on view. The laser cannons are mounted in the chin.








An above shot. Years of colliding with space debris has caused some exterior paneling to come off, exposing interior mechanics, the laser cannon windings, and circuitry.








An above shot of the rear. Again the old-fashioned array is seen on the port side of the cockpit, and the now pathetically weak sublight engines.









A closer look at those ancient thrusters. The tech could only fire up the starboard engine, the port one had suffered too much damage.

This is a really cool, streamlined, and organized design. Well-done! The story helps, too. :-)

Great ship! i say call it something with an old, rustic, even ancient feel. All i can think of is the "Relic", :)

Great fighter, the old republic is awsome! I like all the curves and smooth edges. Great job.

I love the use of windscreens as wings and the angled plates on the sides. What more can I say? Another great fighter design.

Good color scheme, good curves, but that's been said. What can I add? It looks a bit too sleek and shiny to be a 4500 year old derelict! Leaving it outside for a good while to get weathered and discolored might do the trick.

Nice lines, nice curves, and a great color scheme.

Techs have named the mysterious craft: "Sadow's Ember" in reference to the ancient Sith Lord's exile and dormancy on Yavin 4, dated to around 5,000 BBY. (Great ship by the way; I love the curves - Shan).
