As I really enjoyed building my first custom YT-1300 and my YT-1200 I've buitl 2 more, they were a lot quicker to put together as I now have a better idea of how to carry out the conversion.
I like the central position for the cockpit so went with the same conversion, I wanted to do something a little different so I removed the right mandible and replaced it with some sensors which were made with some plasticard and brass rod. I also decided to try a different paint scheme and went with one yellow but the second was blue which I think worked out ok.

I really enjoyed working on these ships but I'll not be keeping these, I'm looking at starting another project for my Outer Rim Smuggler list, after searching the internet I found an image of a heavily modified YT-1300 which I think is called Courageous, I think it will take quite a lot of time and paitience to build but I'm happy to give it a go, hopefully it will turn out similar to the image:
I really like the look of this ship as it's very different to the stock model but still has the same back.
