  1. This is a sweet model, much more compact than the Lambda while maintaining comparable storage capacity. But one thing I don’t understand, why did you decide to add the oval window to the cockpit? It disrupts the symmetry of the other windows.

    That’s a lot of small windows for a cockpit don’t you think?

        Oh ok but why is the cockpit windows are like that anyway?

        • Fractalsponge

          Because they look cool?

            Eh fair enough i find it cool as well but i’m not sure about the oval window at the front tip of the cockpit.

            It kinda has the same design aesthetic as either a Boeing B-29 Superfortress, or the Heinkel He 111. Personally, I think that cockpit design looks great on both shuttlecraft and WW2 bombers.

  3. Looks like it could be a Corillian design.

  4. Isn’t Mu already taken for a series of scout shuttles??

      It’s all legends now muahahahaha!

      by the way it is the Nu-Class Shuttle in the Clone Wars, not the Mu-Class, which means it could be derived from it.

        I am sorry, I misread all that and the link for Mu-class, you can delete these 2 comments if you want

      Also could you do a version of the Nu-Class Shuttle from the Clone Wars? That would look sick, and even a Modified one would be kind of interesing.

  5. I know I spend a lot of time thinking about proportion, massing, and scale on your models. But this really shows that you do an exceptional job. The nose cone area on the shuttle could have gone wrong so many ways. Too long, it’d look like well you know. Too short and it’d look like a turtle head in its shell. You did a great job hitting the sweet spot on proportions.

    I love it, but…it’s not a VSD =D

  7. Ooh, scale comparisons. Between the low-profile dorsal fin and those folding wings, this puppy seems roughly comparable to a TIE bomber’s volume at rest. Also digging the partially-blended upper engine pods & spacious rear door.

  8. Wow spoke too soon, I checked the bbs star destroyer forum and had my questions answered 😀

  9. Awesome work as always. So how does the Mu compare to the Lambda in role?

    • Lambdas are for high-ranking officials on Imperial-class and above, Mus are for people who are deployed on Victories and below without large hangar bays.
