I have never made a Tie Fighter so I was looking through the Essential
guide book and saw this design. I liked it a lot and just happened to have
a half of a globe laying around from an old toy. SO that's the story and motivation, it's around 2.4 X's bigger than the MPC Tie Interceptor kit, but
the ball is smaller than the Studio Scale Standard Tie's ball when formed.
From the Essentials book
Up on the former I only had half of the globe so I had to form
it in 3mm Polystyrene.
Little rough needing some sanding around the
Sanded and smoothed out a bit.....
