I've finally built what is probably my favourite ship in all of Star Wars. Since I first saw it back in 2005, the design of the ship and it's performance intrigued me.
Now that i've built it, i'm absolutely in love with the final outcome. Unfortunately it isn't in perfect minifigure scale, because I started with the printed cockpit piece (which isn't minifig scale) and built around that, but the scale was something I was willing to sacrifice to get the sleek studless look. It has all the necessary features apart from landing gear, which the build just didn't allow space for unless it was obtrusively stuck to the bottom. The pilot's seat can fold foward to allow access to a storage compartment which holds a lightsaber hilt.
I'm really happy with this build, and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do :)

Rear view. The printed 4x4 dish works well for added detailing here. I'm also happy with the spacing between the engines.
Cockpit details. Some credit must go to Maelven here for some of the features.
This is the storage compartment behind the seat which can hold a lightsaber hilt, small blaster or binoculars.
