251st Bomber - Update

Post by PhiMa on Thu Apr 23, 2009 6:38 pm

This a bomber for my Air support regiment. It's very smooth to be swift and be able to quickly escape the battle to reload. The Battalion is lead by My Padawan Commander. (If You haven't seen it, go Check it out!)

Overall shot:


Back Shot:


Another Shot:


Yes, I know it is just a modified A-Wing. But, I think it's simple and effect. Enjoy!

I've updated it into a bomber. For pictures, check out page two.

I like it but it doesn't have that good of weapons. Looks more like a bomber to me. Nice use of the original jedi starfighter wing thingies. (The original jedi starfighter didn't really have wings did it?)

Sorry, but oddly the Delta-7 (Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfightir in EPII) was classed as "Aethersprite", thus showing that yes, the name has been used before.





just my technical side, and, yes, I like the A-wing resemblance, sort of shows how it evolved.

The "back shot" isn't a back shot... Razz very sleek design though!

I have to say, it's a wondeful A-Wing-esque Clone Wars MOC... however....




Nahanahabaaahabahaah!


Hah Razz !

That's not an Athersprite! Athersprites are wedge shaped with nice fins. I mean, it could possibly be from another family of fightercraft than the Delta-series (Delta-6, Delta-7) but it'd be nice if you specified what family it's from Wink .

I would agree with Rook and Sial in several aspects, and I would take up someone else's point that it sort of looks like a bomber. Perhaps build into that bulky rear area a nice little bomb mechanism with a pin sticking out the back? That would make this a lot nicer methinks. Wink

@Sial: Sorry, I asked in the beginning if any knew if a type like this existed.

@80-0: I could work it into a bomber...give me some time.

Thanks for all the great comments so far.

Yes yes, I'm sorry, double post. I won't do it again.

BUT

I've modified it into a bomber.

I added a republic symbol and put on a few more slopes:


And I added a bombing hatch, because it does look more like a bomber:


Open, with a couple of bombs. In total there are ten, I could fit more, but then they don't fall out that well:


Better?

I like it as a bomber way better Phi. The use of that hinge piece on the back was a good thought and the bombs are well bombs.

For a second there I was worried that you had no basis to call it a bomber, but I'm satisfied now. Nice work. Smile

Nice little vehicle you've made there PhiMa! It really reminds me of the Republic Recon Speeder and think it resembles that more than a bomber. The technic pins infront for blasters was a nice touch you rarely see anymore, and the whole smoothed out back-part & engines looked great too. Overall nice work buddy Smile

*Edit- just saw the back hatch for the bombs deployment! Love the playability!
