I agree, those simple changes (which I'm sure weren't easy though) really make a world of difference.  I love this.  Excellent work!

I think I am the minority here, but I like it better with the solar panels/airfoils on. It still looks great now though. The weathering is top-notch, and I really like the color-scheme. Great work Fritz.

Brent- You are off to a great start. I like the big curved wing area on the back. I'm excited to see the finished product here. :)

Nirvana- Wow, excellent snow camo on those. I really like the added battle damage on the ARC. The banshee looks pretty cool too, do you have a shot of one of the Clone pilots near that? I'm curious about its scale.

Thanks, the banshee fighter is pretty much in scale with the SW line. Here's a pic you asked for:

Fritz I think I've changed my mind, I went back and looked at the tie panel pics and acually think it looked better how it was... it just looks too much like a helicopter now.
I think it would have been better if you'd just added a little red and white to the panels to blend them into the ship a little more rather than remove them.

Wow, that banshee looks pretty good with that rodian pilot! 

I picked up a cheap garage sale vehicle that I'm going to try something with... of course, I still need to finish my gladiator from last month first.   ::)  :-[

Since I've been kind of Slackin on the Previous Monts Challenges.
 I thought I'd through together another Custom for this Challenge.
This was a fun Project to work on.It took a lot of Brain Storming
 to come up with some Ideas to Make an El Cheapo CORPS Tank fit for Duty in the GAR.
LMK what you think

Hi everyone. I'm new to this site, but have been a member at GH for a while.  I also have a few friends here at JD and have been browsing for some time.  I have been admiring everyone's customs and Photo Novels a lot.

I saw your latest challenge and thought I would post something I worked on a while back.  I know it doesn't qualify, but felt compelled to post it anyway.  I have two very small children so I don't get the chance to customize very much.  This was finished right around the time Hasbro announced that they were releasing their own version of the Clone Wars Cartoon Republic Gunship.  Oh well, I like mine better just because the paint ap on the wings is on the top and bottom, and the wing turrets are black like in the cartoon.

Thanks for letting me share and keep up the great work everyone!

Cutsheet: is a plan you print off of your computer, tape down to what ever media you are using(be it wood or styrene) and cut. Actually to any of you who want it I'll be more than happy to help. ;)
