Hey Fritz,

I like the Swoop a lot, and the skull like mask on the rider is really inspired. The Republis craft looks really cool (Especially the cockpit.) Like the others I find the TIE panels a bit distracting, but you did a good job nonetheless of making it seem less like a helicopter and more like some Republic vehicle. Nice work!

Wow what a great update Fritz, I really like the last vehicle. I actually like the TIE wings on the back, the look like they would be used for steering vanes or tail fins or something like that. I think you might be able to blend to colors a little better so it fits in with the rest of the ship, maybe you could add more red to them? The only thing that kind of bugs me is the bright green interior, it just seems rather out of place. I think a grey or a more neutral color would look better.

The little war droid is pretty cool too. I could definitely see it terrorizing a battlefield somewhere.

I like the Swoop but it doesn't really sceam 'Star Wars' to me, it alomst feels Joe like. I think that may be more because of the driver than the bike itself though.

Fritz - I like version 2.0 much better.  As I said before, I just was never a fan of the TIE styled wings.

Hi Fritzkrieg,

I like the improvments you made with this custom ship. I got a couple of recommendations that you could add. On the wings, I would recommend replacing the side guns with the ball cannons that came with the AOTC clone pilot. On the front of the ship, I would recommend placing a second dish cannon for semitry reasons, ballance the ship. On the tail, I recommend putting Pod Racer engines, one on each side. Kind of like how an A-10 warthog fighter looks like, or maybe the ARC 170 engine and wings.

Again, the overall look of the ship and using the Hind-D helicopter base body work out well. I wish you all the luck with this project.

 :D Yeah, she looks better w/o the TIE wings... Nice job!

I love all the details - like the back end sensor array and the mando decal on the nose! And speaking of which, do you have any plans for some pin-up-style nose art?

Wow what a improvement.  The other one was very nicely done and awesome but this one takes the cake.  I'd go into battle with this on my side anyday.

I think losing the TIE panels was the right thing to do.

This is a GREAT vehicle!  Wow, well done!  It really looks like it fits in the SW universe.

Excellent!

That ship reminds me of the ships on the new battlestar galaxtica a bit, good use of vehicle fodder, impressive!

I love the updated design of that attack ship.  The paint apps came out very well, I love the connections to the Republic Gunships.
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

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

I really like it, the paint apps and battle scarring look fantastic.  Just a question though, why did you decide to make it asymmetrical?  That's the only thing that throws me off a bit.  I think it would be really cool if you added the right side wing to the other side to even it out. 

All of the greeblies look great and you combined the parts seamlessly.  Well done again Fritz!

Hold on, I gotta get my jaw off the floor....there we go.

MY GOD this thing is a work of art, and you pumped it out so fast, I agree with Greg, the assymetrical look doesn't do it for me if both were wings it would rock.


BTW what line did you get the wings from.
