This Onith-Wing Starfighter by Ted Andes is so sweet that I think it should be woven into a Star Wars movie. It’s seriously that good — it has all the right elements that make it believable, with both the contours and the lovely muted grey, dark red, and white theme. It reminds me of a cross between a Y-wing with the modified engines of X-Wings with some A-Wings thrown in for good looks. The build is almost without any visible studs to give it smooth and clean lines.
While it seems that this beauty would not pack sufficient firepower to bring anything down, the underbelly sports a couple more hidden cannons.
And last but not least, how would a pilot ever be a hero without an astromech companion? Taking a page from the X-Wing playbook, a nice spot for an R2 droid to snuggle in.
Thanks TBB for blogging this build of mine.
I swapped out images of the underside late last night, so I inadvertently broke the link that you referenced. Sorry about that. This link goes to the updated one.
Hi Ted, I updated the post with your new link. Thanks for letting us know :-)
What a great build. Excellent composition, well balanced for a snub fighter, and great technique. Thanks for sharing!
