Bored one day I thought to build a slightly more portable Rebel Blockade Runner out of an Aurora 1/48th TBF Avenger turned upside-down and backwards, and a Martin Mariner treated similarly. I enjoyed covering Guilmette Interceptor with pieces of aircaft panels so I did it here, too. Toward the end of the build I though the top aft was still looking a little empty. I didn't want to cover-up the fusealge with panels there so instead I put a large wing-like radiator, ala Scout Jim Nevermann. Just over the engines I had a chance to use the feet I cut off the Harrier.
I would work on it sporadically whilst I was putting-off finishing anything else, until one day it was called to duty as a mothership. Had it not been for the "white with red stripes" requirement it would have been painted... No, SW-esque "Blockade runners" are painted just this way. Although I try real hard to not paint my ships in classic themes, this one had to be, and doesn't suffer fo it.
When I got it back from it's film shoot I repainted it, decalled it, and sold it to Dave Seeley who kitbashed it for a book cover.
