Happy Star Wars Day!

  • Finished just in time for May the Fourth, is the promised alternate paint scheme for the T-70, seen in Episode 9

Incom-FreiTek T-70


The T-70 X-wing starfighter was the successor to the T-65B X-wing, manufactured by Incom-FreiTek for use by the New Republic Defense Fleet. Following its retirement from service for the New Republic, the T-70 became the frontline starfighter of the Resistance in its fight against the First Order approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor.

Controls

  • AG 1: Lock S-foils in attack position, activate HUD
  • AG 2: Landing/Takeoff Gyro
  • AG 3: Forward thrust when on, auto-brakes and landing position when off
  • AG 5: Extra boost
  • AG 8: close canopy
  • VTOL: gun/cannon convergence

Some thoughts;

Today being Star Wars Day, I thought I'd share some stuff on my love for the series. Star Wars has always fascinated me, and ever since I saw A New Hope for the first time, under the stars in my friend's backyard, projected onto a thick bed sheet, the story would be ingrained in my head. While I love the story of Luke Skywalker and the Jedi, I've also been more interested in the stories of the common people, from the orange flight suit clad pilots of Red Squadron, the Rebel infantry on Hoth and Scarif, to the clones in the GAR.

The T-70 design, I believe, is one of the most aesthetically beautiful designs in all of Star Wars, and I knew I had to make it. I guess this build is somewhat of a tribute to my love of Star Wars, and who knows, it may be the best thing I'll ever build on SP. Thanks if you read all of that, and remember,

The Force will be with you, always

    @232287168147825 oh yeah, the main body is complete, all I gotta do is finish fine tuning the flight model, it'll be out by the 30th at the latest (that being the deadline for the challenge I'm entering it in)

    @MAHADI thanks!
    @Mustang51 glad you like it, as of now I've got 2 crafts in the works, an F-102 and a Y-wing from a long time ago that I've gotta finish. A T-65 is definitely in my list of things I want to build

    Wow wow wow! This looks and flies great! Incredibly fun to use X-Wing. Will we be seeing a T-65 for next year’s Star Wars day?

    I really didn't like the last jedi, but the other two weren't to bad.

    In all honesty, there was a large percentage of the Empire that still existed after the Battle of Endor, but due to Operation Cinder (basically the Empire was to self destruct if the Emperor was to die), the Empire killed itself, with the final battle at Jakku. There were some Imperial units still surviving, so the rise of the First Order wasn't so out of realism, although I think the sequel trilogy is dumb (except The Force Awakens). @wonkapilot

    Very noice. You should make a 1:1 tie interceptor. There’s a scene in the trailer where Rey jumps over one (I haven’t seen the movie yet).

    I personally think that Star Wars should have ended when the second Death Star was destroyed. It just isn’t right that the Imperials, who were almost completely destroyed at the battle of Endor, built up such a large new tyranny in secret, and in such a short time.

    the worst part was Rey being a Skywalker, sounds adopted
