super great models.do you know the scale?
Wel Loenf you made this super great..
The Tie and Intercepter....
Thanks for the download.
Everybody knows what comes next..
The diorama FINISH
It seems a shame to concentrate more on certain threads than other, when there is so many other great builds going on, but these are absolutely unbelievable.
I still find my self amazed at what can be made from paper (with a great deal of skill admittedly)
Well done. Jumped to the top of my build list.
Superb builds Loenf, as always.
I don't know the "real dimensions" of the Tie Fighter, so it is difficult to say something about the scale. I found many different specified dimensions in the net and they all approximate. The model dimensions are (230h x 175w x 190d mm)
Loenf, you are the Force!!
The panels' were something close to 45cm high x 36cm wide on the filming models (sources differ a bit), the "ball"'s diameter was ~14cm. So you are close to half studioscale. What that was (1/24? 1/16?), that's a whole another question.
So those Tie Fighters did have big balls. I always wondered about that. I figured the panels would get in the way of a good dog fight.
I'm just a beginner, and I don't even know the first thing about modelling, but designing wings yourself?:-o
All I can say is GREAT WORK!!!
Greeting from Brazil!
Yup, remember the early PC game Tie Fighter? You have to have big balls for a Tie fighter....You have no shields until the latter tie models!
They just came out with the Revell Tie fighters and interceptors in polystyrene...to be honest yours look better as a card model than the Revell new tech kits that came out recently. Bravo!
