CABGOII Phase III Entry: TIE Hunter

Post by Ruitath on Fri Jul 23, 2010 8:24 pm

TIE Hunter


The TIE Hunter was a starfighter from the TIE series used during the Galactic Civil War by the Galactic Empire. The TIE Hunter was used exclusively by storm commandos, and as a result it was rarely seen and was something of an enigma.***

Its wing configuration was roughly the reverse of a TIE/In starfighter. Similar to the T-65 X-wing starfighter, the TIE Hunter possessed S-foils, which meant that they would open in attack mode and close in normal flight. Unlike most other contemporary TIEs of the time, TIE Hunters were equipped with a hyperdrive, making them more valuable than most starfighters the Galactic Empire utilized. They also had shield generators, enabling them to take more damage in combat. They were equipped with a weapon load-out identical to that of the BTL Y-wing starfighter; two twin laser cannons, two ion cannons, and two proton torpedo launchers.***

Notes:
I'll be honest. I don't like it. This category was the hardest for me because I couldn't think of anything to build until about three days ago. I've been very busy lately too, and I'm not very good at building spaceships period. I changed this entry two other times because I was running out of time too. But despite that, leaving some constructive would be great. I'd really like to get better.

Thanks,

The pictures are a bit grainy. I think it needs more SNOT. Other than that, it's great! Maybe the part attaching the wings to the center could be shorter.

I like the wings, they're pretty accurate.

But I guess you should start improving this by:
1. Bringing in all the wings two of three studs.
2. Making the cockpit more round-ish. It's too much of a block compared to the real thing or even TLC's TIE Fighters.

Other than that, it's pretty good! Thumbs up

Actually, now that I look at it, the wings are as far out as the reference. Maybe completing the diagonal in grey on the wings?

When I first looked at this, I thought it looked too skinny and weird, then I looked at the reference pic, and now I know why. Great job on being so accurate.

Connections between the wings and the cockpit need some SNOT. Cockpit looks like that of a standard TIE. Okay build, IMO. Wink Smile

The wings connection to the cockpit needs some work, looks reely thin!

I don't see your name on the entries list for the CABG Olympics. :scratch:

Interesting MOC though, very skinny, just like the real thing I suppose.

I'd lose the old dark grey on the connectors between the 'wings' and the cockpit, though, and have it all in one type. Wink

Thanks for all the replies everyone! I've recieved a lot of great input that I'll have to use when I work on another starship!

Thanks again,
