4882 Star violator
An almost perfect model with regard to color scheme and design. There is one minor weakness which is barely visible and not really annoying. This model is basically a follow-up of the Hammertail in which I put the reversed engines back to back (sort of). I had done something similar with the Star Blaster, but at that time I didn't know the set as well as I do now. In this rendition I made them the basis of the design, keeping the body slim. Extending the engines at the back to add in the extra engines was thought of next. As I realized their position would not keep in place unless I stabilized it from the top it was clear I had to make use of the large wing plates to do that. The rest came automatically. I think I tried one variation to see how it looked but I quickly reverted to the original idea. Add more stuff would just make it look less cool. No bottom section required for this model as it simply does not improve the shape. Despite the relative complex design very little thinking was required to create the model. Another personal favorite.
