Studio Scale TIE Interceptor starts to take shape!


Sr Member
Hey Guys,

Got some parts back from the laser cutter today. The acrylic still has the paper on it so these are not completed parts pictures. They are for test fitting of the diffuser forms and kit parts. The length of the wing is 18" This will made into a kit to go along and in scale with the Studio scale TIE Fighter I produce.

Heres a shot with some parts in place and comparing to reference pictures. Thanks Uwe.

This pic shows the three main wing elements. The edges will be miter cut to achieve the angle required for the interceptor.

Close up of some parts for scale.

Where do all these go?

Thanks for looking.

The botoom pic with all the parts...lower right...looks like the front mandable detail of the Falcon. Can you tell me what kit it's from and if is suited/from the 32" Falcon?

I accidentally knocked all those little parts off of Steve's pool table last week... :(

Luckily, they didn't go too far. :D

Looking amazing Steve. Can't wait to see how they come out of the mold.

Looking nice I can't wait to see it when I come over to pour next time. I'm glad the laser cutter FINALLY came through.

Slave1 Pilot,

Nope, those are NOT .50 cals. I think Spy007 is looking for another part though. I'll let Steve answer that one . . .

yep... I'm looking at the part to the bottom left -dark grey thing that I assume is on the front mandibles of the ILM falcon. What is this part, do you know the kit from which it came and is it the correct kit for the 32" Falcon? thanks. kitr looks cool.

Hey guys,

Just for quick info the pieces that are marked are from the Tamiya 1/35 Flakvierling kit they are 20mm anti aircraft guns.

Well here is a update Ive mitered the edges and have joined the two outer wing pieces. Ive taken some pics with a ESB version hull with a ROTJ black canopy, I also threw a ruler in there for. Gotta love duct tape. Holds the world together.

The wing does not have any detail added and is not attached to the hull. I just propped it in place so you can see roughly the scale of the darn thing.





thanks for looking.

just found this thread. Is there a web site where I can order this kit from you or some way to contact you for more info?

Mmmmmm, studio scale TIE Interceptor :) Just the thought makes me happy, seeing the skills going into it make it even better. I can't wait to see what you end up with at the end of this project.
