The first time I watch SW Clone Wars Story Reel years ago, I fell in love with this gunship!

The design is menacing; with forward swept wings and stealth-like engines.

Using screenshots from CW Season 7 "Bad Batch", I used AF Imperial Shuttle as the base for this custom and lots of styrene sheets.

I decided to paint it Stainless, Steel and Flat Black; giving it a "raw" look, fresh from the factory kinda thing (away from colors of Republic Army). For the front and rear windows, I painted it Clear Red.

Here are photos in flying mode, landing and landed mode. For the AF stand, I use Saga series logo base (EP2 vehicles are released in this series) with Shuttle stand.

I added a third retractable landing gear (parts from X-Wing) and rear guns (rotates sideways)

The best team to own this gunship is AF Clone Force 99. It comprises of Hunter, Tech (with flip-up googles), Crosshair (with movable scope) and Wreaker!

Initially, the side of the stairs is a blank space. I decided to engrave the unofficial Clone Force 99 logo. (I'll never do it again!)

Lastly, I include a scene from the "deleted" scene.... the NoseArt!

Anakin: "What's with the noseart?"

Wreaker: "That's our girl..... the Naboo senator. We check her out on holoscan"

Here's comparison photos against Imperial Shuttle and Millennium Falcon.

Outstanding!!!

I love everything you did there, especially the fine little details to really bring the cartoon to life.

I so wish Hot Wheels would do this ship, or even Fantasy Flight!!

This is beyond awesome ! Truly fantastic idea and execution, congrats ! The details are amazing, and adding movable parts to the figures must have been epic :)

Very cool. The ship's design doesn't seem to be widely appreciated, which is surprising to me, it's a TIE Fighter merged with an Imperial Shuttle and an 80's high-tech stealth bomber, how isn't this more highly regarded? Same goes for the "Imperial" Gunship seen in Season 5 of The Clone Wars and Rebels. I surprised they haven't turned it into a toy yet. Hopefully it will make an appearance on The Mandalorian.

Thanks mates!

I really hope this gunship made it to Fantasy Flight. I love the scaled vehicles in this series.

Regarding Police Gunship, yeah I am surprised it has not been made by Fantasy Flight or Hotwheels yet. It appears in both Clone Wars and Rebels series. I think only Lego made it years ago. I saw it here in TRU Australia.
