There have been several rumours of an official UCS Slave 1 in the last year and, although they’re unsubstantiated, I’m desperately hoping they’re true. It’s one of the few truly iconic OT ships that haven’t received the UCS treatment, and it seems inevitable that it will happen at some point. Whilst we wait, several fans have attempted to fill the void by creating their own versions of it, both at UCS and system scale, and this design by Peter is amongst the best. It appears to be a similar size to 8097, and shares a similar colour palette, but it’s packed with clever details. The design of the cockpit and underside are both particularly impressive, and raise it well above the standard of the official model. Head over to flickr and take a look.
