This is my scale Republic Gunship. It is built using the 1 stud=1 foot scale, although I also use that term interchangeably with Minifig scale.
It is about 56 studs long, 56 studs wide, and 23 studs tall.
It has many features:
-slanted cargo bay doors
-enlarged cargo bay
-rear cargo bay door
-med bay with cabinets
-8 air to air rockets mounted under the wings
-modified engines to look more like the RGS's
-secret compartment to hold the box from the original set
-another compartment above the cockpit that houses the engine
Quoting Chris E.
this is just the first edition of the republic gunship set.
yes, the first edition embiggened.
I don't remember how much bigger or how changed it is, (this must have been 6 years ago or more) but I know that I intended to make it correctly scaled.
edit: wow, it's been almost 8 years. hard to believe I've been dark-aged for 5... now 6 years.
Awsome gunship. I reviewed it before as the "ClonesRule" guy 2 years ago, i can really see a grammical difference. Well back to the gunship, I like the enlarged cargo bay a lot. Looks much more like the one in the movies than the old lego gunship did.
this is well done!!! very cool!! btw, what is that capsul thing for anyway? it is in the new gunship thing too. any ways, a very nice gunship!!! does a speeder fit into the back like in the movies? please, if you get the chance, check my mini gunship. good job on yours!!
This honestly has to be my favorite LAAT Gunship MOC ever. It has everything the official set didn't have. But I was wondering if you could email me directions for making the rear hatch(optional, not really needed), but more importantly, directionsfor making the rocket loader on the top, compatible with the offical lego set. Thanks.

Wow, i really like your moc of the gunship. I made a version of the RGS of my own. Except mine includes a 30mm Gau-8 up front instead of the two pulse cannons. I also included a back hatch and missle racks but i never thought of angling the doors. Very nice work.
