2 Jedi Starfighter minis

Post by blackninjatom on Wed Jul 29, 2009 12:26 am

I was just going to post the Actis-2, but figured I might as well add the Delta-7 also.
These aren't very recent, but I thought I would share them with you (There are more pics on flickr, images are links).


So Roguebantha already has the simplest and most accurate actis-2, and since I don't like copying people I had to make mine a little different.


I was quite pleased with the shape of this one, considering it went through three different designs in three days. It is a bit tall, but it has to be, in order to maintain the structural integrity, also the canopy needs to line up with the back fin.

These are some of my favorite ships from the prequels so I hope I captured the shapes right.
Hope you like it,

The Actis' usage of hands is creepy and genius at the same time. It gives precise coloring, but makes it look almost parasitic. The Delta-7s are marvelous, but, y'know they make hands in dk. red, right?

Those hands are mysterious... When I first looked at it it appeared to be a sorry mess of pieces sticking to each other; but of course a closer look revealed the truth. That's interesting, using hands to get each of the unique and hard-to-nail details of the Eta-2.

The ETA is dubiously designed at best. The Delta-7, however, is very nicely done. Good piece usage, and only one noticeable flaw - that being the coloration of those hands Wink .

Wow, these look great! At first the yellow hands look a bit awkward there, but once you look at a bit bit closer, it looks pretty cool.

Actually I found out yesterday, that hands came in dark red. Laughing I understand the eta is kind of a hate it or love it type moc. Personally I love to use hands in everything (my favorite piece Pilot), and they just seemed to be the best way to capture the shape, just my style. I have found this moc has an acquired taste if you will, so I completely understand if you think its messy, that's why we have roguebantha. Smile Glad you all like the delta-7, sorry about the hands, but as I've said I didn't know till yesterday.

Use those hands,

Wow, really great use of pieces! Although I don't think I've ever seen a lime green JSF.
