T-47 Snowspeeder Replica In  1:1 Scale 
A Snowspeeder is a Rebel Alliance vehicle featured in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and several books, comics, and video games in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. During production of The Empire Strikes Back, designer Joe Johnston conceived a ship that combined the body of an X-wing and the cockpit of the Y-wing. However, this design was scrapped for the T-47, which featured no elements from previous craft. Johnston's designs for the Snowspeeders have influenced later Star Wars designers, such as Tommy Lee Edwards. The models were built in three different scales by Steve Gawley, Charlie Bailey, and Mike Fulmer of ILM, with the smallest (20 inches) used for motion control photography, and the largest (2½ feet) for hero and pyrotechnic shots. All models included motor-controlled flaps to imply maneuverability, and the largest version also possessed motor-articulated crew. Several full-scale props were built in London for the hangar, cockpit, and speeder crash scenes. - Wikipedia

The Paper Thing
Snowspeeders T-47 são naves leves, do Universo de Star Wars, aparecendo a primeira vez no filme Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), no Brasil: Star Wars episódio V: O Império Contra-Ataca. Modificadas para combates no gelo, são pilotadas pelo Rogue Squadron. A T-47 modificada pela Corporação Incom, com pós-combustor, atinge a velocidade de 110 km/h dentro da atmosfera de planetas, mas não é capaz de voar pelo espaço. Sua aplicação é, portanto, limitada. As T-47 são encontradas em quase todo os planetas industrializados. A versão modificada pelos rebeldes é conhecida como Snowspeeder e foi usada na batalha do planeta gelado Hoth para conter a aproximação dos veículos AT-ATs. As modificações introduzidas incluem equipamentos adicionais para evitar o congelamento. Graças à sua boa velocidade, os Snowspeeders são difíceis de apanhar. Os cabos super-resistentes originalmente concebidos para rebocar cargas pesadas foram utilizados com bons resultados contra os AT-ATs, lançados por armas de arpão. Se necessário, o piloto, que senta-se de costas para o artilheiro no cockpit, pode assumir o controle total das armas, além da navegação.
