I would say that my all time favorite Star Wars vessel is the T-47 Airspeeder aka The Snowspeeder. Luckily for me as a builder of MOC's, Legos official versions never came close to capturing the essence of that boxy little beauty.
Have a look at these pics of my latest attempt at a minifig scale version and tell me what you think.
I love this ship so much, this is for sure the best LEGO representation on the interwebs! And thank you so much for the instructions, I must admit I have built one myself, I tried to make one based off your design a few years ago, but couldn't figure out the cable mechanism -that's a smart play feature! This continues to look sleeker and just more awesome with each iteration. Seriously, terrific job and thanks again for the instructions.
Larry, I remember seeing your work from a few years ago and being so impressed. This is probably the most accurate one I've seen, and all of your creations are incredibly inspirational to me. Nice work!
So impressive that I had to build it in Ldraw. I have a MLCad file of this now if anyone is interested. Very nice job, looks splendid in LDview, going to have to order some parts off Bricklink. Thanks for the instructions.

There appears to be a superfluous abundance of the same opinion, so I'll share the one thing I don't like about this MOC - the 2x6 wing plates used for the angles of the nose. They extend too far toward the canopy. I would rather have seen 4x4 wedge plates used, as in this MOC:
