A studless Eta-2 built in minifig scale with instructions.
About this creation
The Eta-2 also known as the Jedi starfighter was used heavily in the late Clone Wars by the Jedi. Its speed, agility, and powerful weapons systems made it ideal for use by the Republic.
I've been wanting to build a studless Eta-2 for several years now. Attention to accuracy/detail, proper dimensions, and elements of playability were necessary. Features fully functioning retractable landing gear, and fully furnished cockpit. Check out pictures further back in the set. This fighter is paired with 4 others in various colors that will be included in a diorama. Partial inspiration came from ZEO CMF. Instructions are available in the last few pictures on this page.
You can see some of the playability and functions here.
Is it possible please to know the Bricklink reference for the 2 tires from picture 21 ?
Same problem with the little gray square on the left of the weapon ?
And last, I think it's a sticker on the tile on picture 15 ? true ?
Thank you for your answer.
Very very cool, i like the detail on it, i also like how you built multiple ships but in different colors, you should try and contact the Lego Co. about it, probably get allot of dough for the idea
I like it

That's an awesome snubfighter. The cockpit and details like the auxiliary cannons are beast. The only thing I would suggest is that you beef up the engines. They need to look integrated into the chassis. Keep on brickin'!
I originally wasn't going to 'Like' this because I felt it was overrated, but after looking at the video and seeing the features then coming back here to see how sleek and perfectly replicating the ship in the movie it is, I just can't, not, 'Like' this. I'll have to come back to this again later to see if I can build my own with your handy instructions. :)
By the way, where did you get all those different color wing pieces? The only ones I can find are the yellow ones... If possible, I would prefer an answer on one of my creations (you don't have to rate or comment on whatever one you choose if you don't want to) because I'll be sure to see it there. Thanks in advance.
Cg, nice model! I was trying make this one (by instructions) in LDD, but it looks like, that stupid program just can't take some angles right. This means, i can't use exactly same angles and then some parts are impossible to connect (i.e. wings and cockpit). That makes me angry and it's shame, that i don't even have the right bricks to build it in real.
Awesome build and keep up the good work!
As soon as i saw this released, I knew at this would be a smash hit...and sure enough, it's most popular! Well done. The studless aspect is much better than Lego ever made theirs, add to that the numerous details and tidbits added to the rest of it that makes it really pop...add to that the popping orange color. And when you thought the epic meter could get no fuller--you gave us all instructions! Well done, man, well done.
It looks like its not even lego. Great job, i love the colors, orange and grey work so well together. It looks gust like the one from episode III of Star Wars. I am absolutely adding you to my favorite builders. : )
That is the best Jedi Starfighter I have ever seen. It looks so simple until you look closely and I can see that a lot of thought went into it. I especially like the instrument cluster as the layout was truly unique. If you have a free moment, would you mind giving me some advice on my Flying Rhino on how to make it better please?
That's another building style as the official version. It looks amazing, totally great! I would build it for sure if I had the pieces. The only thing is the color transfer from yellow into grey. Check out Droid Hunter's version. But this is anyway 5/5. Everyone who don't rate it 5/5 is m@d or blind (sorry for the hard words). Great job. --Deff--
Incredible. But there isn't enough room for the rest of the droid. That would make this extremely top knotch for my. It's about half a knotch because of that. I like the Orange color of it though. It looks really cool like that. I also like your Jedi Master Indiana Jones. Really incredible.
