T-47 Snowspeeder

The first thing I did was build the wings, so I had a list of the things I wanted to have there. I wanted the snowspeeder to look very smooth yet angular, so I built it in SNOT. Then I added the greebles inside the top brake flaps to get some accurate detail in. For the guns, one of the things I wanted for my T-47 was an accurate barrel diameter. All the other designs use a combination of the 1-brick-wide and 1-bar-wide diameters, completely ignoring the 1-stud-wide width. Using that width did give me the ridges on the barrels that I didn't really want, but I think it was worth it.

------------------------------------------------------

After a couple weeks of deciding to wait 'til Black Friday to get that windshield, I've finally completed it! It was heavily inspired by the design of Larry Lars, whose design for the nose and canopy are only slightly modified for mine. The one thing I really wanted was to do the wings in SNOT. This gave me a clean look and a ton of possibilities for the gun housing. More pics to come soon!
