Cool! when I was a kid I had that as a little metal toy. Loved it!
The ventral fins look vulnerable during landing ...unless you're going to land upside down Good luck! waiting for more!

I don't know about you guys but i never do running landings with my planes. I always bring them in slow and stall them just above the ground so they drop vertically.

I am thinking that i am going to add a retractable nose gear to this guy just like the real one had! Be my first plane ever with retracts.

I have always loved this ship. I remember watching every episode hated the stupid bidi bidi bidi robot guy.

Just for flying , forsaking the scale , look , bidi bidi appearance ... How about putting the wing on the top ??.. Heresy , I know to the true BR fans ....
Although it may be Wonderful landing on a gym floor ... (indoor season approaches) But on our grassy field , even pancake -ing the plane in , those "hooks" on the wingtip would lead to mischief ... OK, what if you just eliminated the "hooks" ???
Is there nothing sacred here ?

Could put clear plastic wheels on the wing tips to go along with your retract nose wheel. Or if you are a fisherman you could use thin piano wire in front of your hooks much like the no snag fishing fooks.

The hooks will probably eliminate themselves on the first landing!

Probably what i will do is change it so there is no hook and put wheels on that lower skid.

There is no way that i will put the skids on top! It wouldn't even be a Starfighter then!!!

Pretty cool looking though huh?

It would look Cool , but not Exactly BR .... I'm just famous for "First Flight Damage" and know those hooks would be quickly ripped off , with perhaps a good deal of the wing too .... my Luck .. Maybe you could flip it and call it something else ... sportsterize' it ??? Maybe FSW ??? The overall Delta + wings makes an interesting visual , and you know it will probably fly like a Delta , being the largest surface ... your call Dude!!!! ... or both ...
OTOH , indoor it would be really COOL as is , built lightly and using Larry's fish hook idea that would be easy and Fun really zipping around in a big gas bag (space, the indoor frontier) hahahaha

Dan, why don't you just hold an open blanket order for every kit i make? It will be a lot easier on your mental state to just accept that everything i do you "NEED".

After looking at pics online, the starfighter has very little in the terms of details. It looks mostly white-ish from 99% of the various pics out there. The only thing skins would do for it is panel lines.
Maybe a nice decal sheet. One you could just print a page with a few key details (emblems, engine, cockpit etc) and cut n glue on after a shot of white paint? Or I could get fancy, print it on a self adhesive vinyl stock and use the wifes Pazzel Inspiriaton cutting machine to make them pre-cut. Hmmm
Cool stuff like a full color decal of the Earth Defense Directorate logo like this one here! It will look wonderful on my engine pylons...and yours too!
