Here is my Republic Gunship. It's a bit of an ongoing project and was originally scratch built from my lego box using a set of instructions - hence the mixed colours. I first added the ball turrets to the wings using a mixture of droid trifighters windows and smoked windows on the underside (both easier to get than the 'proper ones'). Then it just had to be the bay doors so they had the same angles as the rest of the ship. The guns on the nose followed using longer technic axles so that they face further forward without sticking out the front and we also added double clip pins to make them more gun like. The main rocket design on the top was borrowed and adapted from NASH on here and does look the business IMHO! (Thanks dude). The rear of the original was always too square so we played around with the troop bay spending some time to get the angles of the back right so it matches the doors when closed which also needed a small extension to the door design. Finally we added a hand rail in the bay but made it low so that the figures could actually use it.
This ship has is still an unfinished project and I am not yet totally happy with the top or the troop bay and want to make some radical changes to the side gun pods.
That is so cool! I want that. I always wanted one since it came out cause I thought it was neat how they built it like that, with all those little half spheres on it and how it has that empty space in the middle. I think thats neat.
