The PGAB, for short. It was used during THE CLONE WARS. I made it as my first ship MOC ever!
About this creation
This project originally started as an alternate build to a The Lego Imperial Transport set. From there, I decided to expand the model, and make it more complete. What I resulted with is shown here. It is probably my first ship MOC, ever. It only seems fitting that I make up some history to it. Well, let's do it.



____________________

The PGAB, or Pocket Ground Assault Boat, was commissioned by the Galactic Republic for uses in combat zones that ordinary Republic Gunships couldn't reach. It was also made to satisfy the need for faster hit-and-run attacks.
The PGAB was originally designed by Clone Commander Blok when, "after looking through many unsatisfactory prototypes, he just went and built the thing himself. He presented it the next day to the sector command, which instantly agreed to begin production of it." (Clone Commando Holt, 2nd platoon) The PGAB was then produced by Seinar Systems Gal. seeing service only for 2 years, when order 66 then halted production of the craft. Only 42 were built, most of which were then used by local Outer Rim Rebel Cells.

Here is the cover picture in its extended state. Note that Scarif backgrounds were used, which is the ideal environment for this vehicle.


A side cannon that I designed for this model. It turned out pretty well, I think.


Top view. Note the small Repulsor wings. This vessel was the first to use bottom-mounted repulsors.


The engines turned out pretty well, I think. I like the 4 engine design.


The concept art with the real model. The one on the left is the art that I drew before making the model. The one on the right is simply a boredom doodle.


I have edited these photos to give it a "float" look. It's a bit time-consuming, but I think it's worth it.


The now invisible stand under the model allows the model to effectively bank.


No, that is not Oddball. He was on Coruscant, remember? (note the opening hatch. the gun turret slides in when it is closed.)


This picture and the below picture are the ones used for the photo-shopped images.


Note that this model appears in my Dox Remembers ROAE story, which wasn't too good, but you can still check it out.


Well, I guess that sums up some of the major things of my 2016, And I know that this is quite late, but I have been busy on my ROAE filming.
Any way, that's my 2016!

Quoting Allthingsgeek Ben Amazing! Hard to find a criticism... But probably it looks a bit more like a modern warfare vehicle than a star wars vehicle... But still an amazing design!
Yea, you're right. I didn't want this model to be a big thing from Star Wars, hence the only 42 built. I like the design of it a lot, though. Thanks for commenting!

Quoting Captain Kenbo Cool ship I like the features although with the color scheme and aesthetic I feel like it'd fit better in the Imperial fleet... can't wait for the ROAE episode though!
Yea, I was thinking that, too. For a time, the Empire probably used them until the Emperor decided to have a new standard of Imperial design. I'm 3/4 done with the ROAE story, at the moment.
