Upgraded V-19 Torrent Starfighter

Post by astoriabluelegos on Sat Feb 07, 2009 8:44 pm

I love the V-19 a lot, besides the ARC-170 it's my probably favorite Fighter. So I bought the LEGO version (4 in fact Razz ) and was dissapointed to discover it lacked a lot accuracy wise, so I modded and upgraded it, this is what I came up with:

Overall of the ship landed:


A shot of the cowling that "real" V-19s have, but LEGO's didn't:


The heavily upgrade back, that again, LEGO's complelety lacked:


The cockpit section, in Flight Mode:


The cowling in Flight Mode:


And an overall in Flight Mode:


A refrence pic:


As always comments are appreciated! Smile Blue Arc

Nice little MODS, I can't see many but the ones I see are good.

Wow! That's really good. I don't have a V-19, so I'm not sure what's different, but it's still nice! Smile

Yeah, my mods are meant to be subtle ones, it's my hope that they can't be noticed unless I point them out. Wink Blue Arc

Wow, I used to not like the V-19 but you have completely changed my mind Razz .

You made a good comprimise between TLC`s basic design and the real one.

(P.S. I saw a V-19 for $30 somewhere. Hola Wow! )

That is awesome. I have one thousand V-19s, but my 100 pound dog fell off the couch and onto the Torrent and it's platform. I also agree with you, the Torrent is only bested by the ARC-170. Hola Wow! Gasp! I'm a 10 minute member! YAY!

Razz

Joe... that was so hilarious! Laughing
My dad used to do that all the time, like when I bumped my leg on the table, he'd go, "is the table ok"?? Razz

Nice Job ABL! If I ever get this, I'd mod it blue... Wink

I'm not a fan of V-19s (or any Clone War's era starfighters in general) but they are some nice mods, especially the cockpit - it does make it look more canon. I think they need proper star wars fans to design these lego sets (unless they do... ...) - there's all sorts of details they miss out

The problem is that Lego is based as a toy for small children - so functions and playability are more important then detail. Kids don't notice if the cockpit is the right shape and if a grill or something is added.

Really DP, ABL has just overcome two major relatively unnoticed design flaws in the V-19's structure without incurring playability; I think Zulu's point is well placed. Wink

I, myself don't have a V-19 but my cousin does and on his it was missing some parts so the wings didn't move on it. Anyway... nice mods they make it look more realistic.

I understand your point DP...

But I also think it's due to pricing, if they made everything EXACTLY canon and accurate, it'd be pretty dang expensive...

I know it's not just that, that's why you and me like that but the original concept is a toy for small children.

Also, lego would save lots of bricks delivering an already satisfactory product I suppose, rather than going for every detail - it would also be easier to pack and build.
