No actual TIEs were harmed
« on: November 5, 2009, 09:40 AM »
Since the release of the TIE Fighter with the larger solar panels, I've been extremely bothered by the old ones hanging in my collection room, so I decided to cast the large ones in order to upgrade the old Saga/OTC version, then it dawned on me: By only partially filling the mold, I could have some seriously battle-damaged ships without actually destroying the original! Comments/critiques welcome!

That's really pretty amazing. Very well done. I love the use of the force lightning in the one shot :)

Agreed - pic number 5 is really cool - like it's just been hit and still seeing the electrical surge.  Very cool idea and I'm glad you didn't actually have to hurt a TIE to make this!

That is indeed quite cool...  I'd add some "burning" marks though, because that much damage and surely it'd be burnt to a cinder around much of the structure still left.  Maybe add some loose wiring too here and there, or if you wanted it to look like it just happened add some electricity blast effects wrapped around the structure.

A pretty big mold to tackle.  Came out nice though.

Ha! that's Rad Rogue, Great idea. Looks really cool. I agree , perhaps a lil scorching here and there would be the cherry on top.
