1:72 Fine Molds TIE Interceptor
« on: Wed Mar, 21, 2018, 10:25:PM »
I started this kit four years ago, during spring break of 2014 at the park where I took my daughter to play at the playground. It became a shelf queen for years until I finally got around to finishing it.

Here's a photoset of the final build on my Tumblr feed.

Here's the final build video on my YouTube channel.

It turned out alright. It looks pretty good, but close-up photos reveal the flaws you won't see in-person. The paint job is Mr. Color 74 Air Superiority Blue, which is one of my favorite colors. This is the color designated in the Fine Molds painting instructions, and it is very close to the color of the actual filming models for the TIE Fighters. They just appear washed out and gray on-screen due to the studio lights and such. Use your imagination and pretend that it's due to the high contrast of OUTER SPACE!
