Well. I've bashed the hell out of Star Trek subjects for years, but I've never bashed a Wars project before. But I was looking at a TIE Interceptor and a light bulb went off.

Two sets of wings, reversed. A bashed fuselage, and a bashed engine.

I'm thinking, a long-range TIE penetrator with a hyperdrive, and four high-end laser canon.

The lasers are 1/35 German 37mm flak guns minus the barrels, plus some car engine parts.

The fuselage is a section of an old Revell rocket model from the early 60s, I think it was called "Solaris." I found it in my spares box. Of course I had to come up with an engine that gave a reason for the 4 fairings and slots. The main engine body is from a 1/32 Me-262, with the TIE exhaust. The 4 accessory units arounf it are chunks of the TIE wing supports, plus WWII exhaust stacks and rocket launcher stubs.

Plus lotsa sheet plastic, rod, and other greeblies, of course.

As for a name, I don't know what's been taken. I'm afraid I'd call it something from the EU or something. I suppose "Bow TIE" and "Black TIE" are probably taken :D. There's probably a TIE Penetrator somewhere already.

Suggestions?

I hope the Empire does not see your ship, that would be the end of the rebels.

The design is scary,I mean very good. And you say "You do not know the power of the dark side"

How 'bout TIE DIE? :p (Sorry...couldn't resist being an old "Dead-head")
How many Deadheads does it take to change a lightbulb?



None, they just let it burn out and then follow it around for 20 years.

Perfect kitbash! Great design and add on parts from other kits enhance the model without being (easily) identifiable.

:cool:Thanks guyz! :)

Most of the greeblies on the back end and inside the rear space are from 1/72 scale DML Dornier 335 engines.

The earmuffs on the cockpit ball (which are there to cover the flipping great hole left when I cut the pylons off) are: Sheet plastic in the shape of the hole; crew hatches from a Macross destroid monster, and helicopter rocket pod endcaps. Then a buncha fine plastic rod for detailing.
