This is a conversion of the Bandai TIE Special Forces fighter into the standard TIE Whisper from The Return of Skywalker (although I'm not sure it got much if any screen time). It needs some minor mods to the wings, some major changes to the wing mounts and some extra 3D printed parts for the fuselage ball.
Interesting, I'll watch 👍
Another awesome build Uwe! 🙂
Good job, those extra details make the ion engines pop.
Thanks guys - finally getting back to this one.
Nice you come back to this 👍
I enjoy your work, it's most unusual. How did you mask the canopy so perfectly?
Thanks guys. JD - its just practice! I just use normal Tamiya tape, rub it down with a toothpick and then cut into the corners with a new No.11 blade. If you angle the blade right you can just follow the line of the sill.
Wow, I learned something new! Now it seems obvious, but I could never figure out how to do that! Thanks Uwe!
Thanks Roman. Finally got back to this one and made a new canopy. This one is glazed and fits better than the conversion kit part.
Cool to see this one back on the bench ?
Thanks JD - it's definitely moving forward!
I'm curious to see what you will do with Kylo Ren's ship..
JD - I've been building the interceptor version in parallel but hadn't posted any pictures. I've now added a new album for Kylo's machine
