  • what is this? - areojetman
  • a 4L bar...basically a lightsaber blade
  • jumper bricks? that'd be an interesting piece.. :P

    ps: i love the look here too! - lights
  • no, i mean in real life, like the bigger one is the blaster,but what is the smaller one? - areojetman
  • I don't know what it's suppose to be...a gun or sensor of some sort.
  • Thats what they're called... - Symmetry_
  • The mistake was in calling them "bricks" since it's a jumper "plate".
  • Ah, yes I see now. That would be an interesting piece. - Symmetry_
  • Nice! - Element Stacker
  • All the models I've seen of the B Wings have some sort of recess on the leading edge of the main foil. I don't know the reason for them, but they're there. - LegoKol

B-Wing

Newer Older

One of my favorite Star Wars fighters. The A-Wing would be my favorite but Jerrec has already made one that can't be beat.

My pride and joy of this MOC is the center engine. I'm extremely pleased with the way it turned out. Here's how I did it

    Wow!
    The center engine is definitely the pièce de résistance, it's awesome!
    I also like the use of sand blue, and the jump plates behind the cockpit are inspired.
    The B-Wing is a favorite of mine as well.

    pretty sweet... except when the s-foils open the cockpit is supposed to rotate 45 degrees to the left. I imagine the pieces just don't allow for that though. Awesome though.

    The cockpit on the B-Wing is supposed to rotate through 180 degrees, and it swivels independently of the rest of the fuselage.

    ^^ Actually, the cockpit on this model does rotate 180 degrees. And GA is right. Though, when you really think about it, what's' the point of a swiveling cockpit in the zero gravity of space?

    Different viewpoints on stuff you're shooting at?

    Nah, it's for the overall awesomeness factor. I would know, look at the screen name. ;)

    The reasoning used in the old Star Wars RPG was that the B-Wing was engineered so the cockpit could remain as stable as possible in order to provide a stable targeting platform for the weapons. The fuselage of the craft would be able to maneuver around to avoid fire or obstacles while the cockpit section could remain stable.

    The Kenner toy I had as a kid had a weight in the cockpit section so it would remain level while you whooshed it around. It was super nifty.

    Dude, I had the same toy! It was rather enormous, though still swooshable.

    Although that weight in the cockpit caused it to slosh rather than remain exactly level... It was close enough.

  9. Grand Admiral 54 months ago | reply

    Yup... although by that time I was into GI Joe, so the B-Wing got drafted into Joe service as an "experimental" fighter. :P

    This is incredible! I love the cockpit and engine area, and the sand blue looks great!

    this is great! I built one myself!

    Best B-wing I've ever seen!

  13. cmoretrout 39 months ago | reply

    I agree with you, the A-wing is the coolest Rebel starfighter and the B-wing is my second fav too.

    Dang fine job on this B-wing! The cockpit and cockpit gyro section, the egnines, the main wing, all really nice! This ones way better than that "drumstick" looking second edition lego b-wing kit. How come you and others aren't hired by Lego to design their SW stuff? Far better than the junk they continue to sell. The joy in legos I guess is designing it all from scratch rather than building the kits!

  14. cmoretrout 39 months ago | reply

    You should do the Bwing-E two-seater next!

  15. Andrewdash1998 33 months ago | reply

    Make the B-Wing 2 seater

  16. Krytios 11 months ago | reply

    I made one years ago and I'm dissatisfied with it so "some day" I'll fix it. But I also used the sand blue color. B-wings have faded blue! Good job!

    It looks very nice, thank you
