About this creation
For this model I started with the official set. I then went to modifying it to more accurately reflect the one in the movie. It's not quite minifig scale, but it's close enough to look cool and still have some detail.

According to the Incredible Cross Sections book, one would be able to cram four speeder bikes back where the rear door is on the ship. That's a real load of crap, unless the bikes are piloted by pixies. Even on this slightly downsized version, I could not squeeze one in there.

   3/4 rear view. I left the rear blaster as it was. It looks fine like that.

   Here you can see the missile launchers. I've seen quite a few methods of rendering these things, and mine is probably a ripoff of several. But it suits the model.

   The door fully deployed. Most of the workings around there are very similar to Gareth Bowler's UCS RGS. Come to think of it, one speeder bike MIGHT fit, but it's too much trouble, and then there's less room for troops.

   Door is raised. The side doors don't fit as snugly as I would like them to.

   Detail of the missile-loading mechanism. Yes, they do turn.

   Here you can see General Kenobi.

   Pilot compartment sans windscreen. You can sort of see that I nixed that stripe on the gunner's windscreen. It would look super cool, but I don't have the right windscreen parts to really play around with it.

   Detail shot of the side gunner station. I spent nearly an hour engineering this little bit, and it's only a half-sphere. Making it a whole sphere jsut left too much of a gap in between the halves, or too little space for the blaster and cool-looking seat.

Nice! I like how you heavily modded it. You should probably make it so a minifig can fit in the wing bubble though. That's where the gunners sit.

Guy below me, the bubble things on the wings are remote controlled and do not hold a clone, great job better than the official.

the bubble thing is a ball turret and it needs a seet for a clone...

Very good. I love the way you handeled the rocket barren launchers. Can you send me some pics on how to build and attact the barrels? I'm working on my ship now and I thought you handeled them better then me. I think I have an idea of how you did them but I'd like you send me some pics please. Thanks!

Looks great! Just wondering though, how did you make the doors slanted? Mind sharing your this idea?
