My custom Snowspeeder
About this creation


I have two of the 7130 Snowspeeders and don't get me wrong I think they're great! I just felt like there were some major modifications that needed to be made. The colour scheme on the set was pretty much spot on unlike the more recent incarnations of the craft which are white!?! My main modification was to make the cockpit/hull fit two pilots back to back rather than have them in two seperate sections walled off from each other like how it was with 7130.



The most fun part of the build was that back which in my opinion is the most interesting part of the craft, it's got the cooling fins, the harpoon gun and the air brakes.



This underside shot shows the extra set of air brakes I added which not only make this buil more faithful to the design but also make the snowspeeder alot better for displaying in flight.



You may be able to faintly see the gunners head and shoulders behind the pilot.



Some more detailed shots of the airbrakes in action





As I mentioned before, both pilots fit back to back in the cockpit and can be loaded inside through the same opening wind shield at the front



I'm thinking of adding some decals of flight controls and monitors on the flat surfaces either side of the pilots to make the cockpit interior a little less minimal



Here is the main hull with the wings removed, I completely redesigned this part.



Since I had two 7130 Snowspeeders I thought I modify both of them, the other is Luke Skywalker's Snowspeeder which needs a few minor tweeks, the main one being that I've had to use a white flag for one of the air breaks instead of a grey one since I've misplaced the it.
