In the middle of July, we’ve got a closer look at the new LEGO UCS Star Wars Republic Gunship. Now, LEGO shared a designer interview video featuring the set’s designer Hans Schlömer.
In the short video, Hans tells about a couple of challenges the team had to deal with when creating the model. As it turns out, one of the biggest issues was the massive wings and the attachment points, but, thankfully, the solution is simpler than one may expect. Additionally, Hans speaks about weathering effects achieved by using pieces of similar colors.
