E-Wing (DReim Series - Complete)
In the spirit of my Nu series of ships, I decided to come up with a new interesting prefix for another series of models I've been working on, I'm calling it the DReim series (Definitively Reimagined)

Basically the idea is to take EU ships which look like crap and try and fix them.  Here is the E-Wing for your viewing pleasure, still a WIP



UPDATE:  Model and texture complete

Looks good. I hope you don't mind if I post the "Canon EU" version for comparison?



All in all... I'm a fan of the new one. After all we have never seen the E-Wing on silver screen so who really cares if it's exactly as it is depicted in various sources?

Especially when those sources don't even agree with eachother.

Looks great Brand.  I'm just surprised that 5 posts in and there's already more pics of the old E-wing than the new one in this thread.

Awesome! I like how it's a got a sleeker more aerodynamic look now, especially the wings. The nose seems a bit flat though, which constrasts with the rest of the look. Can we see some other angles please?

Very nice, I always found the "original" E-Wing design horribly uninspired... basically simplified X-Wing fuselage with 2 simple wings attached to it. Sure you could call it functional, but compared to the X-Wing it's just ugly.

Your re-imagined version looks a lot more interesting.

Basically the idea is to take EU ships which look like crap and try and fix them. [/lvlshot]

...so basically all of them?  :drevil:

I like it, but the tapering seems a bit much. Not quite blocky enough, not quite pointy enough.

To be honest, I've never liked that blocky design.
Personal preference I guess. =/
I'll trust the team to make something good though.

I don't know about all of them, but probably all of them which we attempt to model :)

just the nose seems a little awkward, but now the thing actually looks rather advanced, rather than a sliced-up X-wing.
though the nose is a little awkward

Looks like it burrow elements from the v wing speeder (NOT the clone era v wing) present in rogue squadron.
