Considering the mortality rate amongst stormtroopers, the Empire would need an advertising campaign like this to get people to join up...

Government job? Or work in the opposition? Meh! Go freelance!



Because there's always more money to be made as a contractor!

I'd sooo pay to go see this movie! Even in shitty, super-expensive 3D!

site seems to be a storage place for various computer-game screen-drawings & banners - couldn't find a proper Home Page, just a root directory.

That Tie Fighter is awesome!!! I love how the undercarriage is technically "Fixed" as well!!  ;D

Adding props to a Y-wing would be easy too, since its engines are separated and well spaced away from the fuselage.

The most famous ship in all of Star Wars is asymmetrical.

Some versions of the YT-1300 were symmetrical.  They have a bunch of them shown in the new workshop manual on on it.

You want asymmetrical Star Wars?  Hows this one suit you?

Nebulon-B Frigate


Its variants are even weirder.


OK, so maybe its not technically asymmetrical but its close enough for me  ;D
