Well I figured it was about time I started something for this contest, seeing as how I only build free models. First off though, I'm using a Finemolds 1:72 TIE Fighter model as a reference for thicknesses of parts I'm laminating. For the record, this is the TIE Fighter model available here. I started out by gluing the large wing pieces to some very thick cardboard donated to me by a friend for building paper models. It's about 1/8 inch thick and when I glued the wings to it the thickness prevented them from warping too much. I just bent it back in place and it stayed. Next I started the "hubcap" on the outside. After I cut it out I strengthened it by gluing a piece of the 1/8 inch cardboard to the inside. I used a pencil to color the edges. The last thing I've done is glue the hubcaps to the wing pieces and put on the "bolt covers." I noticed something weird when I compared this to the FM TIE Fighter. The graphics are accurate to the TIE, but they are rotated ninety degrees. I'll be posting more pics through the course of the day. I hope to finish this by tomorrow, Monday at the latest.
