Remember the POTF A-Wing that was released by Kenner which included an A-Wing pilot? I decided to make that my first custom, and honestly I think it came out great. I only changed the color from red to blue, but I honestly think I did a good job, however I will let you decide. The landing gear is also messed up, so if I made a mistake I wouldn't care as much.

Nice. Didn't they released a Blue variant a few years ago?

I don't believe so. I know a red and green version were made. A blue one, but for the action fleet line was supposed to be released around 2003 or so but was never made. I'm thinking of getting another A-Wing and doing one for Gold Squadron. Believe it or not, I got the idea from playing XWA. :D

Actually, that's the Spearhead fighter, a kind of prototype A-W. DTM released one for XWA not that long ago.

A little late I know, but actually Ace is right. That design was Ralph McQuarrie's concept art for the A-Wing. DTM just used it as the basis of the Spearhead, a very clever decision IMO, given that no one actually knows what a Spearhead looks like.
