This LEGO Republic gunship by Ron_mcphatty is a smaller take on a great vehicle from that galaxy far, far away! The ship is built on the midi-scale, which puts it between miniature and minifigure scale. This size allows for greater details than a miniature model, but less complexity and fewer parts than a model scaled to minifigures. And this thing is jampacked with details! We’ve got the rockets between the rocket launchers on top in the back, ready to shoot down any battle droid fighters. Clear radar dishes represent the swivel guns on the wings. Of course, that’s not all! The coloring of the ship stands out with the bright red and green against the stark white. That bright green is one of my favorite things about the ship, so I’m glad to see it all represented!
While the build may not be minfigure scale, Ron ensures they can fit into the ship in some fashion–there’s even some storage for their blasters. And those sliding doors actually work! I’m surprised two clone troopers fit in the cockpit, but there they are, ready to fly the ship into battle.
Wonders never cease! There’s even room enough to store a tiny BARC speeder in the back. This small ship contains all the play features of a larger model, but takes up half the space! Honestly, this is an incredible little build that would do the Republic proud.
