First the pictures aren't great because I was experimenting using the article in FSM about photographing models. I think something automatic in the camera is making the pictures darker. Anyway I got it finished. Like I've said before I did make the wings a little larger because that's how I thought they should look. I thought the official version's wings were too stubby compared to how they are described in the books. I'm pretty happy with it as a first scratchbuild.

Also if you're ever using masking tape to remove dust before painting (I don't have a tack cloth) and you ask yourself whether it's wise to use regular tape and not painter's tape, listen to reason. I used regular tape and popped off one of the little "wing" things on the cannons. :lol: It was easy to fix though.

Here's the reference pictures in case you don't know what this is: http://rogue74.nt3.npsis.com/chissclawcraf...iss_fighter.jpg

This is the picture I used as a weathering reference (the Japanese cover of "Dark Journey" ): http://rogue74.nt3.npsis.com/chissclawcraf...ss_fighter3.jpg


The model is 1/48. I used the SMT TIE Defender because the cockpit was easy to modify. (and I wasn't sure how to scratchbuild a TIE cockpit).

VERY Nice Jason. It's a great piece. I too like the elongated wings. I like the side profile the best. Not too hot on the front end look, but that's just my design astheticts. It looks like a deadly machine.

Jason... it looks wonderful. The proportions looks spot on. I suppose it took a little creative guessin for the backside (can't remember any art depicting the back).
