74-Z Speeder Bike

74-Z Speeder Bike
It’s been far too long since I did a Star Wars MOC, I think. I’ve had this one half-built lying around for a few months, now. I would’ve loved to do this in brown, but, unfortunately, the tooth pieces, which I consider a very important element of the shaping of this model, don’t come in Brown or Reddish Brown, so I settled for a white Hoth edition. (for now) The other major change I made was the steering vanes; I abandoned the inaccurate triangle sign pieces for these.

I think the tooth pieces make the back look a lot better than the cheese slopes I used on my last design of this vehicle.

From this angle you can clearly see the new steering vane arrangement. Much more fragile but also much more accurate.

74-Z on Black
I took a shot on black as well; it’s (obviously) easier to see the white details on the black background. Can’t decide which I like better. On another note, I think I like the reflection of the model better than the shadow I usually put there.
