The Y-wing is comprised of many blocky elements, which mainly comprise a SNOT technique that runs along either side of the cockpit and past the midsection to the engine joists.
The cockpit, at the fore of the ship, can accommodate Anakin and a select few other Minifigures - it cannot accommodate a Clone Trooper. The cockpit features a small control pad with a black 1x1 tile representing a tactical display.
Behind the cockpit is Ahsoka's bubble-turret, which can be accessed by lifting the dome and cannons away. The small space can seat a Minifigure of almost any size.
R2-D2 sits behind the turret in a droid socket. He is connected to a missile launcher underneath the fighter's body; when R2-D2 is tilted backwards, the missile fires.
Plates, tiles and slipes make up the fighter's upperwork. The engine pods are comprised of cylindrical parts, with peg-mounted long plates and studs attached for decoration while tapering to thrusters that feature wheel rims and purple dishes. The engines attach to the the main boy via pegs and holes.
This Y-Wing Starfighter was used in the Clone Wars. It was mainly used for bombing missions because of its huge payload, and it has a bubble turret for defense against enemy fighters and missiles (inspired by WWII bombers like the B-17 and B-25). It can seat a pilot, a gunner, and one astromech droid.
