The force is strong in this one.

Good job Dizz.  Looks great against those backdrops.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

First off, you can tell this is a great job because every piece looks like it belongs together...

Second... you now have me eyeing the quick-connect hose accessories in the hardware aisle in a new light...  :mellow:
Thanks!

Looks better than most of the "official" TIE variant designs, and the beauty shots again prove that model kits made by a skilled modeller look better than CGI in effects shots ;D

Thank you very much. Light is not perfect, but with my primitive setup for the pics and the TIE/E's complex shape, it's O.K. Glad you like it. Started as a smoldering ruin, and turned out into a pretty conclusive model.  :lol:

Congrats on your Tie Escort Fighter. If it was painted in reverse, it would be a First Order Tie Escort.

Good job, Dizzy! I can hear that growling electric hum-buzz as it zips across my screen. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
