    Here are some pictures of the FO Transport I recently reviewed after adding around 200 additional parts to enhance detail and adjust some minor dimensional issues.

    I lengthened the hull and engine assemblies by one stud each as the ship is a bit on the short side when compared to stills of the actual vehicle. I re-arranged the interior weapon rack layout and added some appropriate looking levers and gauges.

    Mechanically, I extended the lever that operates the ramp so it's easier to use, I changed the geometry of the ramp itself to make it lock in the closed position more securely, and I used some 2x2 studded panels for better roof attachment

    I've also added a bunch of light grey and dark grey smooth panels and vents to blend things together better and cover some studs. Lastly I beefed up the engine section with more grey blocks and panels, and some piping.

    Here's the pics-

    Note- To see what the ship looked like before any mods, just scroll up to the top of this page and check out my original review w/pics.

    Here's a LEGO blast from the past. The 2005 Republic Gunship-

    I always thought the ball turrets detracted from the overall look of the ship, so I ditched them and replaced the wing mounted ones with fixed forward firing cannons mounted on new wings. I also modified the big cannons up top, and added a bunch of studless plates to smooth out the studded areas. To finish things off, I added my usual display stand.

    I like LEGO ships with interiors, and this one has a very complete interior with an opening nose, doors, and other panels that make the detail easy to see. The magnetically held "cargo pod" with gadget was a neat feature I kept.

    Haven't been on in a while so couple of updates:

    Made myself a lightbox for my double sided one sheet.

    Modified black series helmet
    image.jpeg

    I've been all in on the black series as well which has been fun trying to track them down with limited stockists and wave releases over here downunder.
    If anyone has a General Hux I'll gladly take it off your hands :)

    Sucks I can't expand my collection more, the newest wave of 3.75's are being sold for way too much.
