Over the weekend, I built all of the current wave of SW sets expect Ashoka's JSF and the Solar Sailor (as I don't own those yet). Happily, I still have some room on my shelves following a major dismantle of some older sets that are low on my display priorities, so I can finally built the Twilight
Just got the Republic Attack Shuttle and built it. In my opinion, it's not the most interesting build, but I really enjoyed building the cockpit for some reason. What I really like about the shuttle is the solid and sturdy feel of it. The wings are 2 layers of plates to prevent them from breaking. The overall ship is pretty good looking, although a bit weird from some angles. The best part? The 8 missles on the top. I don't have to flick them, and I can shoot many in a short amount of time.
I am building Cloud City right now. I was able to get the pieces with a "Part Out" from Bricklink for a reasonable price. No figs though, but maybe later. This is the only set I never had in the last 5 years (since my dark age is over). I hold it in my hands once, but was stupid enough to put it back into the shelf. So I enjoy the build very much.
