I built this A-Wing during the nineties before the official Star Wars Lego were
released. It is made entirely and solely of bricks from the 80's and 90's.
The choice of blue versus the classical red painting of the A-wing is essentially due to the fact that I had merely blue, yellow and green cockpit windows. So I went with blue.
I based this MOC mostly on a scale model of an A-Wing I built previously. Considering the scale seems to be slightly smaller than the usual minifig-size, my A-wing would be slightly larger.

Sleek and elegant for a fighter which should be more rounded to be more canon.
The good thing about having old Lego parts is that they got naturally weathered and dirt. It makes this rebel A-wing more real and in -use on some battlefield.
