The constant reality of the rebellion was that there were far more volunteers than there ever was equipment for them. As the war progressed, there were several "creative" solutions to the problem of having more pilots than ships. Most were abject failures that made Ugly fleets look good. Some were so bad that they started to loop back around on good. And the worst? They were subject to legendary stories like this...

Purple Squadron Leader: Chief, you have got to get me some more ships! Those Y-Wings we flew against that Victory-Class Star Destroyer were less reliable than a Rodian bounty hunter trying to shoot a guy in a cantina booth!
Flight Chief: What do you want, commander? I have an ample collection of ships just lying around this well-stocked flight deck...
Purple Squadron Leader: Sarcasm is a sign of a weak mind, Chief. The blasted nacelle on Velasria's ship fell off when he came in to land!
Flight Chief: It still landed, didn't it?
Purple Squadron Leader: Yes, but it won't be fixed for a week, and we're going out on another flight tonight!
Flight Chief: Well, the other only thing I've got that's ready to go is some new experimental W-Wing, but it's just an awful machine. Off-kilter engines, only speed is "way too fast." You'd have to have some idiot that's only good at flying while drunk out of his mind and incapable of flying in a straight line to fly the thing...
Purple Squadron Leader: Well, actually...

VHPFAU: If you lose it will be due to your polling picture. It is hard to tell how it is a W but when you scroll down and look at the other pics it is shocking to see the great concept. You might want to PM Solo and ask him to change the polling pic to the second or third one in the above post. I am glad I scrolled down becasue this one is a really tough choice.

Eh, I don't think that you need to show the letter in your poll picture... it should be the picture that best represents your build. VHPFAU, I like the ship, and love how you solved the problem of shaping a W. It was a lot more difficult of a letter than I was expecting initially. I actually had far grander plans for how I was going to build the shape, but had to scale it back when my engines weighed in around a "blasted ton" or so.

It was actually mostly by accident that they got set up this way. I posted a picture in chat looking for advice, and just set up the cockpit and engines, unconnected, in a similar position. It seemed to work, and that meant having to find a way to actually connect them. Just happens that by doing that, the W-shape became far more obvious at an angle...

These polls aren't supposed to be based only on which fighter looks more like the letter, it's which one looks like the letter and looks awesome doing it. Obviously it's your choice how you decide but not everyone considers the same attributes on equal terms.

completely agree with dWhisper and Solo...the first i thought with the W was in mobile parts, go from a squared stationary form to a edgy open attack mode. Maybe i concern a bit much in the playabiliti and functionality and not always you can catch that in a picture...actually iv posted a video on flickr to clarify any doubts.
the fact is that i have a great time building this, and if i don't pass the round, il continue building the other letters...jst for fun, good luck and may the best W Wins
