My SS TIE Fighter

So...it was bugging me that you couldn't see the crease on the front of the dash. So I stripped off all the parts, made the crease more pronounced and reapplied all the parts on the front. It's a subtle difference but I'm much happier with the dash and think it looks more accurate.

Finally made some more progress. I finished the windscreen! What a fiddly little piece it is. I didn't realize till I started making it, that all the mullions are beveled. It took me two tries to get it right. I could probably do a version 3 if I wanted to make it more accurate but I think I'll stick with V2 for now.
I actually modeled and printed the round bezel, one of the very few printed parts on this model. The rest is all scratch built by hand.

Very nice swgeek!

Love the vacuum formed piece for the mullions. Ingenious!

And is that T-track on top? I hadn't really noticed this detail before.

Thanks everybody!

Bjorn Treadwell I figured that's how the ILM guys built their frames back in the day. Yep, T track on the face and it's tiny.

Thanks dirtydave. Almost done on the ball. Still have to make a couple seam cover master patterns and I have a couple more parts to add to the ceiling.

Next, time to finish the wing master...or a seam cover.
