Well, here it is. I just moved recently and this was totally destroyed, it was my favorite creation. But then...
About this creation
When I first found out that it had been completely destroyed and all the little bits of it were scattered everywhere,I was torn and had no idea what to do... I sat there for hour wondering what to do. I was my favorite creation, and all the salvageable parts were so fragile. All that was left to do was try. So for the next several hours I pulled it out, bit by bit, piece by piece. After what seemed like forever I had laid out and cleaned all the peices. The next day I got to work. I was at the project for almost a week, rearranging and expanding the model to make it look as good as it could, and here it is, back from the brink my re-born Arwing!!!!!
Here's a shot of the fusalage, I had to expand it to make it minifig scale. The whole aircraft is about 8-10 studs longer than the original model.
I added slightly larger G-Diffusers and gave the wings sharper angles. I also widened the cockpit to accommodate for the extra features.
Canopy shot. I found this digging around my lego box. It looks just like the Arwing II's canopy. There's also more detail around it and the top G-Diffusers.
The rear engine. I love how I added a few extra details. If you look closely there are lots of pipes and hydraulic tubes between the wings and the main body of the craft.
Close up of those hydraulic pipes I was talking about.
The new cockpit and controls. It's a little bigger now with more features and controls, as well as a small black seat. I also added a cool new feature. Behind the chair is a large storage bay that can fit many things. Just remove the chair and open the hatch. Sorry there isn't a pic. My camera is on the fritz right now so I'll try to fix that ASAP.
Heres a pic of the real Arwing II. See how this one has sharper angles than the regular Arwing, and as I mentioned in my 1st Awring, I looks very much like a jet. Sorry about the shape. I'll still try to make one as close to the real thing as possible.
Oh, just a final note. I tried really hard to fix it up, but it's really nothing compared to the original one. I just wanted to show the many modifications I added to it. So please take it easy with the reviews. Thanks :P
Awsome Dude! I could use a Builder like you in my Groups! Just look for the Words Team Star-Blade and STAR FOX, you'll find them. I hope you Join too!!! Love that ARWING man, Where is the V1? I wish to See it.
im the same dude as the guy below but with a new name. cool arwing but why haventyou been reviewing my mocs at all lately? remember, we're allies. i also just moved, and i stuck my legos in a fragile box but they still broke. curse my grandpa's driving!
dude just so ya know i tried to get a kubrick but found out they were too big and i couldnt find them. besides i used the lengendary helmet as a reference and made sure i made it better than the kubricks (not to be egotistic) but i did add more details than the kubricks' helmet. sorry for making the review so big but i wanted to clarify.. anyway sorry again and cool arwing
Very nice conversion of the Arwing.
I loved this aircraft ever since Starwing on SNES, and your recreation is very well done, I was able to recognize the original at first sight without any explanations, this speaks for your work!
Unfortunately, I don't like how you did the nose in your model. Maybe you should retouch it. Not that it is all wrong and ugly, its just... idk, to massive, not as elegant as the original's nose.
hard to recreate the shape with lego in minifig scale, I know, but I bet you can "fix" it!
