Darth's Advanced TIE in mini scale


Recommended Posts

So I had heard that this kit (one of the Revell Easy Snap small kits) was pretty close to 72nd scale so I used a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby and picked it up. Figured I would do a repaint, fill seams, etc. Opened the package and sure looks smaller than my FineMolds TIE so did a little research on the web which showed the "Reel" vehicle to be 9.2 meters long and the kit says it is 2.8 inches long. Quick calculation later the kit seems to scale out closer to 129th scale which is no where near my 72nd collection. What to do, what to do.

 

So I said heck with it and snapped it together with no additional paint or putty (did use a little glue on some spots for added strength and now I have my first completed build for 2010 in just over an hours time. :party:

 

Kit has decent detail and Darth is in there too.

One step closer to my goal of 12 builds this year.

My goal is 12 builds before I die, so let's see, I'm 51 now, don't smoke, drink in moderation, blood pressure is dead perfect, not terribly overweight, not a junk food junkie.... no way in hell. :smiley21:
