TIE Striker - Royal Guard Escort Fighter

Recommended Posts

This is Bandai's little 1/144 Striker, from the U-Wing/TIE box set. It's designed along the same lines as their Vehicle Model series, with only a few parts and no clear moulding for the canopy, but it's still highly detailed, being essentially a scaled-down version of the 72nd kit.

I finished this one in a scheme heavily influenced by the red TIE Interceptors used by the Royal Guard in various EU comics. Paint was my usual steel-over-black recipe for the panels, while the red was Gunze red over Gunze russet.

The Kilrathi demand to know who stole their Dralthi I plans.

And they'll be having a stern word with the Cylons afterwards.

Seriously, that's a smart bit of modelling there.

Dralthis are round though :)

 

Nice one Andy, the red really suits it - very menacing.

 

Cheers,

Very smart little Red (Dwarf) Striker there! Excellent paintwork. 

 

On that note, wonder if you could call it a Tie Smeg fighter?

Wow she looks good in Red. :yahoo:... Ive been thinking of doing a group of 4 Tie fighters in red with slightly different patterns on the vertical wings? Of course it will take me a while to gather up the four models so don't look for it anytime soon.

I look forward to seeing the results when you get around to doing them Dennis. It sounds like a great idea. I always love seeing Star Wars ships in custom schemes.

Do you think you'll ever do a 1/10 TIE to go with the Snowspeeders?

Very welcome Andy!

A 1/10 Tie would be great. I really have thought about that but hesitate because I have no idea how to replicate and build all these parts. Especially the round cockpit and the wings plated with cool shade or fridge material seems very complicated to me. The Snowspeeder was much easier I think.

Best,

Mark
