    These babies are just awaiting there bases.. Dean D. Built and painted the tie interceptor and did one helluva job to it.. I built and painted the tie fighter which was a Swpropmaker kit. It isn't quite done yet, I have to do some touch up paint work , but I couldn't wait to show these off together.

    Awesome, I am hella-jealous. Those are both beautiful.

    How are you going to display them?

    Looks nice..
    I have both those exact same kits and they are nice.

    I plan on displaying them ala Cking style and display them in flight mounted on the wall using no base and I want to find movie still pics to hang above them.

    I made my mount today at work for my TIE Interceptor, I just gotta find time to paint the mount and mount it to the wall. I plan on using the same mount for my SN TIE and CC X-wing if it works out.

    TIEs should always be gray, and Interceptors should always be blue-gray. Well done. B)

    Cool models.

    I´m not sure about the color. I have photos of the Studio Tie in grey color, but also some that show him in a slightly blueish color, not quite as blue as the Interceptor, but almost. That´s why I painted mine in a slightly blueish note as well - My TIE

    Thanks guys, that is the first time I painted a starship in years.. I usually just do figures and busts.. I just have to touch up the grey on the tie a bit where I oversprayed the black , then it's done .
    Wait until you guys see the base Dean is building for the interceptor, it's going to blow you away.

    I particularly like the subtle weathering on the ANH TIE.

    Most folks don't weather them enough based on the fictional philosophy of the Empire, but ALL models need some degree of weathering, (unless you're doing a Lamborghini Gallardo).

    Here is the base in progress for the interceptor.. just needs final painting and slight weathering.

    That base is a work of art all by itself.
