    Stunning :eek:.

    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.

    Hi,
    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)

    greetings Loenf

    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

    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!
