FreiTek E-Wing Fighter
A new generation of starfighters from the old Star Wars Expanded Universe.
About this creation
For anyone who loved the old Star Wars Expanded Universe lore, this ship may be familiar. It's the FreiTek E-Wing fighter that was introduced after the founding of the New Republic. After the defeat of the Galactic Empire, the newly established New Republic needed to update its aging fleet. FreiTek, the company who had taken over the Incom Corporation, designed the E-Wing as a replacement for the reliable-but-outdated X-Wing.




Initially, the E-Wing did not live up to the high expectations placed on it. The E-Wing required a brand new type of astromech droid, the R7 line, in order to function properly. This made all R6 and older astromechs obsolete when it came to their compatibility with the E-Wing. For this reason, among others, FreiTek began producing an updated version of the X-Wing, dubbed the XJ model, to supplement the New Republic's fleet until the issues with E-Wing could be ironed out.




Once the E-Wing came into its own, it was a force to be reckoned with. It featured heavier armor than the X-Wing, yet was lighter and more maneuverable. It had a higher-rated hyperdrive and its R7 unit enjoyed a much safer socket located inside the craft instead of exposed to the outside elements like the astromechs on the X-Wings and Y-Wings.




















































Thanks for looking and may the Force be with you!

Quoting Ross Taylor Is there any way you could? I'd be willing to pay for it. I'm trying to set up a bunch of Star Wars fighters all battling on the ceiling and I think this would be a perfect addition.
If I did, it would be quite a while. I am in the middle of the Decisive Action game here on Mocpages so I wonít have time to make instructions in the near future, sorry.

Quoting Joshua Sadar It's always nice to see another E-wing - I wish I had noticed it when you first posted. Very smooth look with just the right amount of stud-ness. Also, great job getting the angle of the wings just right!
Thank you Joshua! Itís one of my favorite Star Wars ships (even if itís no longer canon) so I tried extra hard to get everything to look just right. Not so easy when the source material is not quite consistent.

Quoting Jesse Horn I wish Disney would canonized the E-wing, along with some other ships too.
Me too. At least the TIE Defender has been made canon in the Rebels tv show. So I'd say there's at least a ray of hope that the E-Wing will have it's day thanks for the comments!

Quoting El Barto ! Nifty fighter! I would have put a tail fin on there, but might look too much like a Colonial Viper...
Thanks El Barto! The original design doesn't have a tail fin though :(... Maybe that's why it doesn't have one, because the artisit who came up with the E-Wing didn't want it to be confused with a BSG Viper.
