Updated - My first model of 2014, I present Slave III, a spaceship that was used by the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett after the loss of his first two ships. However, not much is know about this third craft; it was briefly discussed in the book "The New Essential Guide to Characters" as the ship Fett had used before Slave IV, but no official appearance of the ship has surfaced. I based this model instead after concept art by scifi artist Feng Zhu who drew Slave III for bobafettfanclub.com. A scratchbuilt model of the ship was later made by modeler Jason Smith and posted on is now defunct website Asylum Shipyards, sometime around 2005. The design is a modified Mandal Motors Recovery-Class hauler, a deep space tug that could pull multiple cargo modules behind it, (like a space semi-truck), or using a tractor beam, could tow crippled ships many times its size. I think the design is pretty neat, sort of has an anime feel, and I think sort of bears resemblance to Fett's helmet. Update: fixed flipped normals that may make model not render properly in other programs.
