Asajj Ventress' Ginivex Fanblade Starfighter

Asajj Ventress's Ginivex "Fanblade" Starfighter

 

As seen in Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003-2005)

 

It makes an appearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the twelfth episode of Season Three... "sees the return of the Geonosian fanblade starfighter as Asajj's vehicle. Its distinctive shape was inspired by a Japanese fan."

 

The inspiration came from realizing how well 1x4 hinges work with wedge plate, in this case 12x3. The Fanning Function seemed like it would be a good challenge to build in a clean and sturdy way and this vehicle looked like it would be a fantastic LEGO set, so naturally, it had to be done.
