My second (and far better) attempt at a Jedi Starfighter. ALSO includes bio of my Star Wars character, Rave Allor.

Where does this vehicle originate from? All will be answered in Rave's bio.
The landing gear retracts! Zoom in to see for yourself. Also note the missile launcher (carries 4, leaves 2 out in the open) and the dual laser cannons down the middle.
Head-on, the camera distorts the size, giving this bad puppy a rather large nose.
There sits Rave in his cockpit. Wave to the wonderful audience, Rave!
The left wing, with R4-M6 [completely] seated comfortably in.
Those awesome missiles. Didja like the ice cream-smoke trail effect in the main pic?? Didja didja?!
Some Construction Secrets Pour Vous:
Here is the ship with the right wing removed; you can now clearly see the nose. Remove the legos attached to the nose…
… and there it is!
Here's the cluster of pieces attached to the side of the nose.
Removing the wing and nose attachment gives for a better view of the laser cannons.
Sig-Fig Name: Rave Allor
Age, after the Battle of Endor: 39
Lightsaber color: Emerald green
Originally, Rave Allor was a Jedi Padawan of the Republic, fighting in the Clone Wars. He was 16 then, and in desperation the Council appointed him a Jedi General and gave him the hasty rank of Jedi Knight. He led the 475th "Norm" Corps to the Bogden system, to uncover information about Jango Fett's mysterious encounter with Lord Tyranus. They found nothing, nothing except for a Trade Federation listening post on the bog moon of Bogden, that is. It was neutralized, and Order 66 was enacted. Trying to escape in his original Jedi Starfighter, the Agile Offensive, he was shot down by an AT-TE. He luckily survived after it crash-landed, and he ran to a nearby hangar, successfully escaping in an abandoned Y-Wing.
Rave went into hiding during the Dark Times, getting shelter from the Wookiees on Kashyyyk, joining a small group of space pirates (look in the Space Pirates folder), and eventually affiliating himself with the Rebel Alliance.
He participated in the Battle of Yavin, flying his trusty (and modified) Y-Wing. He was driven out of the trench by Darth Vader's TIE squad and picked off turbolaser towers instead (have you noticed: an unidentified Y-Wing survived the Battle of Yavin? Unless it's anyone's concern, that spot is up for grabs!)
Later, Rave was present on Hoth, and escorted a transport off the planet in his Y-Wing (accompanied by an X-Wing). The transport, however, was destroyed in orbit, and the both of them escaped into hyperspace empty-handed.
While at the secret Rebel rendezvous point, he grew fed up with the fact that people like Han, Luke and Leia hadn't appeared, and that the Rebels were always subjected to fleeing from the Empire. So he ditched the Alliance, entering hyperspace for Bespin, where he knew an old sabacc friend from his pirating days…
Once there, though, he discovered the place was under attack—by the Empire! He caught a glimpse of Luke and the others, thus curing him of his worries about them, and got in a fast but furious brawl with Boba Fett, who had someone in carbonite… In any case, Rave knew then that the Empire would never leave the Rebels alone, and quickly fled back to the rendezvous point. Not too long after he returned, the trio of heroes also did, though Luke had apparently lost his right hand…
During the chase for Han's carbonite-encased body, Rave was barely involved in the ordeal. However, when the word was out that the Death Star II was in orbit around Endor's forest moon, he was part of the commando team to disarm their shield. It was a success! Only once did he have to use his lightsaber, and that was when he was absolutely overwhelmed by troops.
Much later, Rave returned to the location where his Agile Offensive had crashed and, relieved it was still there, set about remaking it. Getting help from old friends, he completely remodeled the ship into a sleeker, more shielded craft, and dubbed it the Agile Offensive Mark II.
Final pic: Say cheese, R4!……… I do hope you said cheese, R4, I don't speak Droidspeak. Rave, why are you laughing?! WHAT'S SO FUNNY??
EXCELENTE' really, really, really good! And on a different not (B-flat) I am throwing together my 270th legion, and its kinda like the AoT, i'm still figuring the whole thing out - but do you want to join? do you have a 999th legion or something? please reply asap!
I like it

Judgeing: For the Jedi I´ll give you a 8 of 10 (to much like Obi Wan, still cool), for the Starfighter I´ll give you a 20 of 20 (AWESOME!!!), for the color I´ll give a 10 of 10 (red and grey are a read combination and you macthed it in a cool-caotic way), the detail gets a 10 of 10 (AWESOME!!!), the story gets a 5 of 5 (really good work) and for my opinion I´m giving a 5 of 5 (this is genius!). Final points 58 of 60 P.S.: If you would have used a little bit more creative Jedi, you would have got 60 of 60, if I could leave out the Jedi part in my judgeing I would be very happy, because that this has not got 60 of 60 is a little bit depressing.
You must have spent quite a while thinking up that story, and I hope you had fun while doing it :) It's a nice little ship, but I think it could stand to have some more of your own creativity added into it's basic shape design, otherwise, good job!
