I have always loved the Gunstar and was really interested in trying to create a 3D model as accurately as possible to the original. Just to see if I could. So I took Ron Cobb's original concept art I found online and used it to build this model of a Gunstar. Then I just kept playing with the idea that this was a lost experimental version of a Gunstar that survived the meteor gun attack because it was out on a secret mission testing an experimental stealth deflector plating. And Gunstar Zero was born. The Second to Last Starfighter.
