TIE Fighter










Here are some images of Fine Molds 1/72 scale Siener Fleet Systems TIE/Ln Space Superiority Starfighter. From Wikipedia "TIE fighters are fictional starfighters in the Star Wars universe. Propelled by Twin Ion Engines (hence the TIE acronym), TIE fighters are depicted as fast, fragile starfighters produced by Sienar Fleet Systems for the Galactic Empire. TIE fighters and other TIE craft appear in the original Star Wars trilogy — Episode IV: A New Hope (1977), Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983) — and throughout the Star Wars Expanded Universe.

I love the TIE fighters alright. They represent the most in design imput by the movie studios. It demonstrates the fact that things don't have to be streamlined to be be fast and agile in the vacuum of space. These Fine Molds kits are super. Nice job again by warren. The little red insignia is a nice touch.

Thanx Dave.From a pilots point of view there's very little visibility. I hope there's view screens to compensate.

I always wondered if the inspiration for this was the Von Dutch flying eyeball. Lucas drew inspiration from a variety of sources, and he was aa hot rod enthusiast to boot.
