So I was browsing the January Chibi Fighter entries and I felt inspired to make this chibi rendition of Luke's snowspeeder.
The front is a bit iffy, but from other angles, it actually looks quite good. It can fit one fig as well. Does it capture the whole 'Chibi' theme?

Anyway, Enjoy!

i saw this in the stream and loved it. i think it makes a great companion piece to angus's winning AT-AT entry. the star wars cannon elements seem appropriately disproportionate on this model. i think i'm too used to seeing official sets cause i kinda feel like it could use a splash of color somewhere. seems awfuly monochromatic and dull in terms of color. but, that doesn't take away much from the very chibiness of your chibi snowspeeder.

I just love this...some colour would be good but the scale is perfect.

Nice one.

Thanks guys!

I have updated this in multiple ways! I've added a decent interior, I've managed to squeeze in the second crewman (Unfortunately, he must be bald D: ), I added the rear underwing flaps, and under the fuselage, I added a rig to hold a pulley for the tow cable (And the tow hook is attached to the current rear gun).

I'll post pics soon!

Oh, and thanks for the mention on the homepage! :D

Hi guys,

Here are some updated pics, guys. I've added a tow cable rig, an interior, room for two crewmen, and the underwing flaps. I apologize for the bad photos, I was in a rush. :|
Enjoy!
