 As I mentioned in Thursdays post, I will be away from the PC this week, but should return next weekend, but have managed to finish another model to show before I go.

This is a LAAT /le Patrol Transport, produced by Fantasy Flight Games as part of their Legion line. The vehicle first saw service before the end of the Clone Wars, and makes several appearances in the cartoon series "the Clone Wars" mostly on the planet Corruscant. When the Empire takes over in the timeline these vehicles continue to see service, and can be seen in the series "Star Wars Rebels". As yet it hasn't appeared in a live action movie or series, but who knows what the future will bring.

I took a photograph of the interior before putting the last pieces together, as once completed I didn't think much would show up and it doesn't ! LOL at least I know it's painted. I've done this one in full flight mode, with the access doors at the rear closed, as I was lucky enough to get two for Christmas, and the second one I'm going to convert a little to show it in landed position, with the rear access doors open.

That's all for this quick post, so until next time stay safe and have fun ! 

Cheers Dave

 My last female for Fembruary is Gragra, you may remember her selling Gorg's in episode 1 the Phantom Menace, she is a Swokes species, so may not be the sort of female model you may expect ! LOL

While building this model, I thought I'd get a couple more characters done for Star Wars rebels, so started with Melch an Ugnaught, who works for Hondo Onaka, I used the face of Kuiil from the Mandolorian, as the basis rather than the cartoon version.

Then I got Ryder Azadi the former Governor of Lothal done, as he was a major part of the resistance on Lothal.

While I was at these, I thought it would be rude not to do Rex's buddies, so first is Wolffe

and then we have Gregor

I also got a quick conversion of R3-A3 from Iron Squadron done, which will go well with the Gooti model I showed earlier in the month.

To round off, I got an Imperial version of a KX droid done, I have to say the arms on this version have more detail than the ones I used on the K2 version I showed earlier.

Sorry there will be no posts next week, as I shall be away from my computer, and will have to catch up on all your lovely blogs when I return, so until next time stay safe and have fun !

Cheers Dave

That's everyone who commented on the challenge post, so if I've missed anyone, let me know below, and because Roger would ask where my entries were here's my two entries.

Thank you to all who took part, and creating a great event, that you hopefully all enjoyed taking part, you can check out all their blogs from the links included, to see even more pictures and posts. Hopefully Friday I will have at least one more Fembruary post, so until next time stay safe and have fun !
