Beautiful work. I love these landing craft. Versatile workhorses.

Have you ever had any of your models 3d printed? Is it possible to purchase any of them for the purpose of doing so non-commercially?

More amazing work! Have you ever considered doing the Loronar Corporation Strike Class medium cruiser? Would love to see your take on that design.

As I recall, his take on the strike class was (a few years ago, at least): It’s crap and ugly, let me design something much better *designs the Kontos-Class*

I do like the yellow lighting better than the blue one.

What is the light shuttle on the right called?

I believe that’s the Delta-class DX-9 shuttle. I believe I t’s only seen in legends sources and looks pretty goofy on Wookieepedia, but Fractal’s take on it is amazing.

After some consideration, I respectfully suggest it needs a docking ring on the ventral hull, with a hull-cutter so it can serve as an assault shuttle if needed.

The Gamma is absolutely best-in-class for that mission. I was just thinking that the Sentinel having the ability to do it in a pinch would be a useful asset. That plus the universal docking collar would allow it to do external hard docks on ships without the landing bay capacity to land a Sentinel internally.

Nice to see this finished after following the progress on discord! Fantastic model as always, and an improvement on the original design. 👌🙂

I was about to ask why is someone swinging on a rope beneath it i n the first picture before I realized it was the line of the wing.

Very nice! I like the slope in the rear dorsal hull behind the ventral s-foil; it gives the Sentinel a surprisingly sporty look that’s distinct from every other version I’ve seen.

*dorsal S-Foil, not ventral. That’s what I get for commenting before the coffee kicks in.

She’s a fast-back. Just needs some Shelby racing stripes, vented cowlings, rally lights, and a cobra badge.

Will you make a Gozanti-class cruiser or a AT-TE walker?

As always, Fractal gotta hand it to you. Your models are the most accurate and detailed, anywhere. About the Sentinel itself, the Sentinel was a multi-role shuttle, and drop ship. Being capable of landing a AT-AT. Advertised it is said that the Sentinel could also be used as landing craft for up to 75 stormtroopers. 50 more than it´s cousin, the Lambda Shuttle. Furthermore the Lambda was designed for executive transport in mind, while it´s cousin was designed to be more of a front-line craft, hence why there is several exits, as opposed to the single forward ramp on the Lambda-class, which made a easy target for Rebel snipers on the battlefield.

Another amazing rendering from Mr. Hsiao. Any chance to get this and the other two shuttles in a top down view?
