I’ve been eagerly waiting for Instagram user TWP (@nl_twp) to complete his latest model, and it’s finally ready! While the Eta-2 Actis interceptor has been the subject of many a LEGO build, this has to be one of the best ones out there. The way all the angles match up is just sumptuous! One of TWP’s goals with this build was to incorporate a full Astromech body into the wing (something which even in the movies requires some considerable suspension of disbelief). The use of an arch piece is wonderfully integrated and works perfectly for this very purpose. Over 200 hours went into this and the thought really shows!
I encourage you to go and check out all the details – there’s a surprising amount to pore over, given the modest size of the ship. But to whet your appetite here’s a shot of the opening and fully detailed cockpit in its landed configuration. I love the use of the transparent minifigure stands for the head-up display!
