The Jedi Courier was a small experimental craft that was designed and built in the final year of the clone wars. The Jedi Council ordered a ship that could transport two Jedi (Usually a Jedi and his padwan) to and from the far reaches of the galaxy quickly. The ship was required to have a hyperdrive, shield generator and conventional offensive weapons. The result of was a ship that was larger and more powerful than the standard starfighter, but still nearly as fast and maneuverable. The Courier uses an early ion engine arrangement similar to the one used aboard the V-wing Starfighter. The craft has quad laser cannons, dual ion cannons and two proton torpedo launchers with a magazine of four torpedoes each. During landings the ships ion drive “wings” fold down to provide for a controlled decent.

Wow. This looks huge. Just for kick, could you do a size comparison with a V-wing? I really like the studless look too.
Well, I already took it apart but it is slightly larger than a V-wing, but smaller than an ARC 170, although it has more interior space than either of those starfighters. Check my page later today to see my new assault fighter that I will be posting. It is one of my favorite projects yet, and one of my biggest.

nice, I like the wing shape, very unusual! ;) but I feel that the interior could use some better details ;)
Yeah, it was a really quick build. I had a plan to build a lower deck with a meditation area and cargo hold but I had to finish it fast so I could clean up my living room before people came over. All in all I would say I spent an hour and a half on this.
