Vulture droid

Post by Commander Lukas on Tue Aug 25, 2009 1:43 am

The Variable Geometry Self-Propelled Battle Droid, Mark I (also known as the Vulture-class droid starfighter or simply as the Vulture droid) was a droid starfighter used by the Trade Federation. Later, in much greater numbers, it was utilized by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. It participated heavily in the Clone Wars, at engagements such as the Battle of Kamino and Coruscant.

Like most of the Trade Federation's armed forces, it carried no living pilot, but rather a droid brain that was linked to a central control computer, often aboard a Lucrehulk-class Droid Control Ship. Each Trade Federation battleship carried 1,500 such droid starfighters.

The Vulture-class was designed by Haor Chall Engineering, which was founded by the fanatical Xi Char, a religious order dedicated to high-precision manufacturing. As a result, it represented classic Xi Charrian design— an insectoid appearance, multiple weapons emplacements, and a compact body that offered only a small target for enemy fighters.

I made this using parts from the hyena(?) bomber and random parts I found.

I use to have the naboo N1 star fighter, so I remembered how to make the walking mode.

It looks very similar to Lego's version. And dark blue just doesn't do it for me, I prefer sand blue legs.

I disagree with Joe. I kinda like the dk. gray. But Joe's right... its basically the same set, just in another color.

I agree with TB and Joe. it's basically a re-color of an existing set. But it is purdy.

Some more tiles on the front part would be nice. It's not bad...but nothing extraordinary.

I actually like the vulture in that deep blue...

It's downright sexy! So what if it looks too much like TLC's, it's the thought that counts Razz .
