There was no U-Wing in the warehouse, so I knocked this one out. First time using SketchUp's Photo Match feature, and it turned out reasonably well. I cheated on the engines, copying and scaling them from an X-Wing model (the U-Wing engines are basically modified X-Wing engines anyway).
The model has 2 groups of wings - one set in the forward position, one set in the rearward position.
Update n+1: Updated with lots of panel detailing, and much lower-polygon and more accurate landing skids. Still need to fix the canopy height and shape, and the hull and wings are also slightly too long.
Update n+2: Shortened the hull by .5m and the wings by .25m. Proportions look much closer, with Bandai scale model as reference. Next update will fix the canopy.
Update n+3: Chopped the height of the canopy by 10cm and reworked the planes to have more co-planar surfaces. So much cleaner now.
Update n+4: Transferred wing panel detail to the underside, detailed the belly some more.
Update n+5: Another minor tweak to the upper hull length to get the proportions right. When I resized the hull the upper & lower got a bit out of sync.
