Tie Mauler

Post by 80-0 on Mon Mar 24, 2008 1:04 pm

I finished this on Easter and took pics, but my dad was on the computer all day so I couldn't get them on then.

The folder isn't public, but here's a sneak peek:

Looks ok. I wouldn't have used the red piece on the front gun. Black or Gray most likely. It was pain trying to figure the treads wasn't it.

Could you please post a lighter picture?? This one is very dark. For what I can see it's pretty nice, just as Rook said, change the front gun piece to black, grey or blue. Do you have any photo's from different angles?

Well, I was scrambling to find a 2x1 1 stud on top and I failed( Sad ) so I slapped a dark red one on.

Also, I recently modified the inside of the 'wheels' and made it much more sturdy than it was.

Yeah, but I eventually got them. Razz

DP, yes, I do have some better pics. The light in my brother's room isn't phenomenal. Roll Eyes

By lego standards, all TIEs are blue, except for the UCS TIE Advanced (which is one of the most awesome sets, IMO).

Folder ON! Kashyyyk

Also, if I were to get my hands on that pretty Tie Advanced, it'd go alongside my (dusty but still pretty Razz ) Sopwith Camel!

It looks great! I have to say though, assembiling those treads is tedious and annoying work, but the end result looks AWESOME! Smile Blue Arc

Usually U.S. and Canada have the same availability, only rarely do one of us have something the other doesn't. Wink Blue Arc

No it does because exclusives such as the Sandcrawler are one of the few items that we don't always have available at the same time. Smile Blue Arc
