    I wanted to get them into a classy ala Cking style display.

    I used 1/2 galvinzed pipe, pipe fittings, and floor * to display the ships in flight.

    I wanted the movie posters and pictures of the ships in their real environments to go along with them.

    I think it gives them more meanig to the veiwers then just sticking them on a self and guessing what they are.

    Enjoy.

    Nice array of movie stills to enhance the models. The "blue screen" walls provide an appropriate environment, too.

    Cool. :thumbsup

    Thanks guys.

    It is a dedicated room in the basement that is 24'x14' with two 8' lite display bays.

    It took me alot of last year to remodel the room.

    That looks great, and if you did it in the basement it succeeds at the all important "out of wifey's site" factor. Unless of course your wife is into this cool stuff.

    The wife isn't in to it, but she is understanding of my hobby. :D

    After all, she let me have a fullsized Boba Fett displayed in the livingroom for almost 3 years as well as a few other life sized displays at other times also. She also let me have a T-rex head in the diningroom in the last apartment.

    Thanks..

    It is one of those SS sized TIE intercepters that come up on eBay time to time.

    The 'Ebay" TIE Interceptor is smaller than studio scale. Ive had some folks take some photos and if you compare its size to the studio TIE that I make you will see its very small and not studio accurate at all. The Interceptor has the same body as the TIE some small detail changes but overall the same hull is used on both. It's a nice large model but not studio scale accurate int hat its to small and uses no accurate kit parts.

    You pull it off very well in the collection. Looks like the real deal. Congrats.

    Once you fill that empty spot ;) it looks like your collection will rival the LF archives, with that I will be offering an accurate filming minature of the TIE Interceptor soon.

    I wish my wife would let me deck out my room like yours. Very Nice Indeed.

    Thanks for the comps Steve..

    Once I get the new bird the empty spot will be complete.... ;)

    I was comparing both your/my SS TIE kit to the eBay TIE before I built the eBay TIE and they are very close in actuall size, really close actually, but the cockpit ball section is about 10% smaller, but the overall size is the same.

    I'll concede its close in scale but some things are larger than they should be others are smaller than they should be. I dont think one kitbashed detail on the kit matches the ILM filming minature.

    So my observation is it is not film accurate but it is a good size modle of the subject. Well done might I add. I would also say its not a item for the die hard rivet counter either (accuracy nut). Its for the collector that wants a larger scale representaion of the interceptor that is not conserned that its not ILM studio minature accurate. A nice dispaly non the less. Congrats.

    My 2 cents

    Totally agreed.. It is a great kit, it is just not yours. :D

    and thats what I like about my Code 3 AT-ST, not quite SS sized, but it fits in with the theme and 100% of the people that visit my basement will never know.

    "It is a great kit, it is just not yours. :D " Yeah I guess I am a bit bias on TIE fighters as they have been my interest for the past 8 years. Many blood shot eyed nights, staring into piles of kit sprue. I would love to be able to build a model without having to find exact details trust me, I do envy the maker somewhat.


    Back to your Studio Scale display very nice. Very nice indeed.

    Great job.
