Default "AWACS" Jedi Starfighter...

I was bored at work today.
I took one of these, and some sheet styrene(Plus some Airfix battleship model kit greeblies), add in a small length of brass rod, and some small thin strips cut out of a coca cola can(To make the cockpit canopy hinge!), and here i present to you guys the AWACS Jedi Starfighter...
Although that set of sensor systems up top are in a total prototype stage, i expect it will influence ships in the future...
Maybe large ships...
;D
Here are the pics:

Thats a cool design Bar! I like the round ball (cockpit area) combined with the SD look we are used to.

Thanks.
I started off without the idea of the AWACS "dish" on the top...
After i added a lot of structure that looked like the ISD, the top details seemed to be a natural add-on...

That's what she said...

I am not sure whether to go for Anakin'style colours or the more traditional "Obi-Wan" style of the Republic Diplomatic corps...
Hmmm....

Sweet looking! Yeah, I hope the Empire will look into this design seriously!

Nice works, Barry, as usual! I like the ETA2 canopy on this.

As for going Obi or Ani, I say go with a scheme you yourself prefer. That is just, IMO of course but I would like to see whatever go with.

Thanks Ben!
I am thinking it might be cool to go with totally different colours than any of the ones we have seen so far, like this was a support craft for a mission, but not flown with any of our regular heroes in it.
I picture the hammerhead sensor array being able to see ten times further than normal sensors and being able to relay that info to other Republic ships.

That's a mighty cool idea and I love it!

As most of the Jedis probably choose a paint scheme of their likings (if they are even allowed to like) or accordance to the colour of their lightsabers or clans. To paint this ship in a single colour is gonna be kinda boring but I could be very wrong. So maybe something like the AWACS we have today of white, grey and red strips? Just a suggestions, sir!

Thanks for the ideas Ben.
I am going to have a look at existing Jedi Starfighter colours, but for now, i have been looking in my "flying colours" book(It details the liveries and colours of every major fighter plane since aircraft were first used by the military), and i found a beautiful set of colours on an old Japanese plane.
And it also uses colours and themes common to the "later" B-Wing...
Here's what i am thinking of(Slightly altered, of course for the JS shape).
It will be bare metal for the main hull, two tranverse blue stripes near the rear, with a green nose and two of the red circles:

Thanks guys. I got a basecoat of silver laid down last night. I have my uv light bar set up at work, so I should be able to get a lot of the paint done today. I'll take pics as I go and post them when I get home.
