Rebel SWING-WING (B-wing variant)
About this creation
Here's version 2 of the Rebel SWING WING.
As with version 1, the wing is still in the same place but the cockpit has been resited at the far end of the axial stancheon whilst the heavy weapons pod now sits amidship.
Unlike version 1, the wing of version 2 can extend out to a full 90 degree angle giving the SWING-WING an appearace closer to that of its relative, the B-WING.

The unique feature of the SWING-WING is the energy absorbing ablative plating covering the main wing's surface allowing it to act as a make-shift shield escort for distressed vessels and due to the increased range of wing vector and rotating cockpit, the SWING-WING can defend ships from a great many positions.
A squadron of SWING-WINGS can easily defend a ship much larger than themselves.

The heavy weapons platform has been upgraded and along with the quad turbolasers, it now sports a pair of medium yield ion cannons and three siesmic charge launchers.

Please review the Version 1 along with this Version 2 and leave a comment - would like to know people's thoughts on these and which one is favoured more.

Many thanks for looking.

Great MOC, aspecially the idea to make a "Swing Wing"!! Maybe you can just give the cocpitt that much that it could be right out of the films.

As little sense as its overall design makes, theres only one word its appearance says: AWESOME. As for the cockpit, it looks somewhat bland, but everything else is more than interesting.
