Rogue One Cargo Shuttle SW-0608

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor and their rebel team stole an Imperial Cargo Shuttle and dubbed it "Rogue One". They used the ship to enter the high security imperial base at the planet Scarif and got the plans of the Death Star. There is no official LEGO set of this key spaceship (at least until today), so when I left the movie theater after watching the film, I decided to make my own version of the SW 0608 Zeta-class Shuttle "Rogue One" on a scale compatible with the use of minifigures.

The model has two decks: the cabin and the cargo deck, connected with a ladder. The cabin can be opened to comfortably place four minifigures. The cargo deck has an orange container for freight (in the movie the imperial cargo shuttle was used to transport the Kyber crystals), which can be removed to leave the shipment at the destination. The cargo deck has two ramp doors, one in the front and one in the rear, to disembark materials and personnel.

The four wings can be placed in flight position (tilted down and out) or fold in vertical position for take off and landing. In the flight mode the silhouette of the ship resembles a prehistoric sea reptile or a sea turtle, something that I find pretty cool.

This ship could be used as a display model or to simply play with it. 

Hope you liked it.

Kind regards
