Enlightening the (LEGO) Darket (January 28, 2018)

Long Live the Confederation!
Last week, we reported on an extremely well-done MOC Darket design found on Instagram. Further research has found that the source for the design seems to be a group called LEGO Building on Russian social media hub VK, which has more images and information… including how you can find the pieces to build your own!
The detailed Darket is, in fact… a B-Wing! Specifically, it's an alternate model using the pieces from 75050 B-Wing, a 2014 Star Wars kit. The B-Wing is out of print today, but sets are available on the secondary market if you want to recreate the ship. The official name is the Darket II, said to be a fighter bomber manufactured by the Ki'ra Clan.

And here's the Darket in 'real life'! Pretty great:

A gallery showing an earlier attempt is also available:

The group also created a new Kilrathi fighter: the Drakrhi V stealth interceptor, said to be a medium fighter manufactured by the Ki'ra Clan. This one uses the pieces from official set 70003 Eris’ Eagle Interceptor plus "about 5 additional pieces."

The 'real world' Drakhri V uses Imperial insignias from a Star Wars set:

And what are the Kilrathi? Lion and tiger figures from the recent LEGO Chima series!
