My entry for the 2012 Moccer Paired Contest. Topic: Episode 1. Category: Vehicles. I know the color isn't quite right, so I spent most of my time getting the shape of the body proportionate. My partner is Commander Hawk. Let's check out the moc.
The Variable Geometry Self-Propelled Battle Droid, Mark I (also known as the Vulture-class droid starfighter or simply as the Vulture droid) was a droid starfighter used by the Trade Federation. Later, in much greater numbers, it was utilized by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. It participated heavily in the Clone Wars, at engagements such as the Battle of Kamino and Coruscant.
Info taken from Wookieepedia.
I didn't have enough tan and brown to build it to Episode 1 colors, but I feel like I did good.
To The Moc!

The joint configuration I used to build my Vulture.
I do have small claws on it, and the printed piece was added for detail (what a shame that I don't own 2 more!).
Close-up of the guns. I think I did quite well on these, although they may be a tad too big.

Close-up of the head. I don't have any of the official Vulture's so I had to make do with my Hyena-class Droid Bomber stickers.
Front view with the tiny guns/proton torpedo tubes. Pew Pew!
Close-up of the back.
I decided to make a small dio with the Vulture in it. Here, 3 Naboo Royal Security guards attempt to ambush 4 droids and the Vulture who are taking prisoners.

The prisoners. 1 Gungan, and 3 Naboo civilians.
Another overview of the dio.
This picture was taken without my normal setup. I was experimenting with lighting and adjustments on my computer.
This was a great build for me. Getting the shape of everything was easy, but connecting it was tough. Luckily, my design held up for the pictures, only to fall apart when I picked it up. I think I did great!
