Interestingly with the Scimitar assault bomber in legends it said “However, instead of two ion engines, it only had one, thus the lack of the prefix TIE.” But the one here created by Fractal have four ion engines so I guess he does not like the idea of this bomber having only one engine if he was aware of the idea or not.

By away Fractal which fighters do you like more the Empire’s TIES or the Rebels’s letter wings?

Very impressive! My best refference to create my lego-versions.
After the escort-shuttle, the next moc is ready; the GAT 12 skipray-blastboat ( have only to take quality pictures).
I also started the XG1 starwing gunboat.
Your work is a real pleasure, to look at. And I thank you very much, for this scaling-board.

I don’t know if you are familiar with Star Wars X-wing miniatures by FFG, but if we see the XG1 StarWing Assault Gunboat for the game, I hope the wings don’t look like the Lambda shuttle white that they did. Do you think you could try a version of the StarWing that has the solar panels instead?

Also, is it just my imagination or are your TIE Ddefender solar panels longer than FFG’s?

I think his Defender is much more inspired by th original design from the PC-game TIE-Fighter.
FFG took the design from a (IMO cluless) drawing in the Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels. That one hast no room for al that stuff they put in (hyperdrive, big shields….)

Truly snazzy lineup. Your Defender design’s revamped fuselage & wing pylons render that beast notably less spindly, although those perpendicular ‘fin’ extensions near the front of each spoke seem tailor-made for atmospheric friction. Speaking of fuselages, interesting combination of smooth planes, angular greebling & ventral launchers on the Scimitar. As for your Avenger…well, closest thing to a nitpick for me would involve the wing root-to-‘solar’ panel ratio; otherwise it’s easily the sleekest TIE revision I’ve ever seen, which is no small feat considering that beast’s horizontal profile. Ah, and the Starwing. Truth be told, I’d be sorely tempted to lop… Read more »

These are some of the most beautiful models I’ve seen (along with Dan Brown CGI). Stunning!!!
