Postby Solo » Sat Dec 21, 2013 12:36 pm

This is now the polling thread for the ships shown above. This poll will be open for exactly 48 hours so get those votes in quick! You can still view the entries below. Contestants: this is a friendly reminder that no changes are allowed after the deadline, so your posts will be locked and if any of the photos in them change you will be disqualified.

This is the submission thread for the pilots listed above. Your letter this round is D.

The deadline for this round is 8pm Pacific time next Wednesday, December 25th.

Post your starfighter photos below. Include up to three photos and label them as follows: one you'd like to use as the polling image, one demonstrating the letter, and one showing your pilot in the cockpit. Standard photography restrictions apply.

Okay, her's my entry, I'm slightly intimidated by Jud Raynor, but now this is done I can think about V or S ships. I'll think about a backstory over the next couple of days!

Cant wait to see halfbeak's entry!

Nicely done majortom. Just finished shooting mine, hope to have it up in a few hours (before some last minute Christmas shopping)!

Hello All once more, very happy to still be in the contest. This truly has been a building marathon and very testing (enormous fun though). So here is the D-Wing (plus a short backstory of course)...

The Scram-Delta D-Wing was manufactured by the Damorian Manufacturing Corporation (Essesia System) as a rapid assault fighter with the unique attribute of having a long range remote guidance system whose movements could be controlled by the Core Tactical Computers of the local Capital Ship. In "easy" mode, the pilot's role became primarily a weapons operator, being required to simply thumb the large and very ergonomic "fire" buttons rapidly several times (preferably yelling, "Aaaaaaaagh!!!!"), once the Core Tac-Com had conveniently manoeuvred the D-Wing to place any enemy vehicles within its targeting crosshairs.

The Jedi Order had captured a Scram-Delta that had been escorting an Imperial supply convoy. Seeing potential in the remote system, they hacked the guidance system and slaved it to their own Tac-Coms in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. Then came the time to test the system, but of course, they needed a humanoid Prindaar Surf-Hog (guinea pig).

Master Yoda himself said, "Install Pokludix Zaa in the D-Wing we should. A computer the fighter will control. "Easy" mode set, we will. Possibly go wrong, what could, hmm? Hmmmmmm."

So once more, Pokludix flashes into space in yet another risky and unknown starfighter... Will he return safely or will something possibly go wrong?

WHAT!? I actually have my V-wing finished on my desk as I had expected to be in the 3rd/4th bracket after this! Thank you halfbeak for a very exciting penultimate round and good luck for the final! And of course thank you to all the forum members that have voted for me thus far.
