Bandai 1/72 First Order TIE Fighter

Postby Scruffy » Tue Sep 14, 2021 9:28 am

This is the only other thing I have managed to finish so far this year, completed last weekend.

Image

The pilot and instrument panels. I used some Tamiya clear green, blue, yellow and orange to spice up the instrument panel decals.

Image

All the interior parts painted and decaled ready to assemble.

Image

The cockpit base assembled.

Image

The assembled ball interior, in the end not much will be seen of it.

And the finished build...

Mighty nice work!
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

A tie sheets looks mean in black! Love this build!
March as one, Don't look back
Odin's sons... Attack!
Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

Love the red cockpit
Building a kit from your stash is like cutting the head off a Hydra, two more take it’s place.

That is great looking!

Blood and glory in the fighting fields
Shields a' shatter into splintered timbers

Glory, take us into Odin's halls
Golden glimmer and the sound of singing
Asgard's call"

You always have me with that Bandai Star Wars stuff. Most excellent work. I like the way you've accentuated those dunes.

I need to start visiting this section more often. I'm missing out. Great looking Tie brother.

It's all about the finishes isn't it? These Ban Dai kits are superb, I have a few in the stash. Too bad they somehow lost the rights to Star Wars.
Now that we know that.... What have we learned?...
