UCS Models by Gareth

Postby Staff » Thu Apr 23, 2009 4:39 pm

Gareth Bowler, longtime SW mocmaker extraordinaire, has been posting some new/newish/old models to Brickshelf. Here's a couple of his latest, a UCS Speederbike, and an updated A-Wing!

Click here for the full gallery!

Of the two, my favorite is the speederbike, which has some really great details I like, such as tires for the handle grips, and some fantastic greebling where the steering vanes connect to the main body.

Click here for the A-Wing gallery!

The A-Wing is sleek as ever. The canopy stands out to me.
Click here for the full UCS gallery, which includes a new TIE Interceptor, Swamp Speeder, and General Grievous Fighter.

We've gotten emails and forum posts from people asking where Gareth's spotlight page from the old site is. It's archived, but we're still trying to cement our plans for handling spotlights here on the new site. Although we may not end up featuring individual builders with their own pages like we used to, we still intend to highlight the best and most amazing Star Wars-related creations we find.

It's always great to see more work by Gareth. He's among my UCS "idols" and I really admire the detail and movie-accuracy his work possesses. That A-Wing is just about the most killer version I've ever seen and the girl posing with General Grievous' starfighter is really very cute! The fighter itself though is perhaps too dark a colour, but looks very good all the same.

Plenty of photo's of the A-wing to work out how to build it and what parts required, if only Gareth made instructions :'(

He made instructions for one of his A-wing renditions, along with a fair few others. (His original bit on old FBTB)

Years ago I bought all the necessary parts for the "Probe Droid", but never had the time to build it. Now the old fbtb-site is gone and I lost the instructions that were placed once here: ... index.html

Has someone saved a copy and could send it to me?
