I don't normally post here, but I love the tie Defender too much not to comment when someone makes one. And my you have done a great job making one too, especially with how the three "wings" connect. The little greebling with the phone pieces and trans red and the grills really look cool too. Great job!

Batbrick Away!  :devil:

It's BEAUTIFUL :wub:  :oh:
I second what Roncanator Said about the Joinery....thats really a masterpiece :wub:
well done on the Cockpit as well its REALLLY COOL.
Some how the Tie Defender reminds me of the old CIS Droid Tri Fighter with that same 3 wing design, does anyone else agree to this??
Overall Amazing MOC :classic: I also think if lego made this into a set then they couldn't have done it NERLY as good as you :classic: .

WOW THAT'S AMAZING!!!   I love it!  :wub:

If Lego made a TIE Defender, they should consult you first.
"Fly for the Empire"
"Build it Right, Make it Bite"

Still Mutilating Clones or making them better.  I dunno maybe you should ask them yourself?

Thanks for all the praise!!

i have to say thanks to Rob AKA Walter Kovaks for the inspiration to build this Tie, you would not believe the problems i had with how the wings join to the body, originaly i used Walters method but that proved to weak and could not support the wings plus it was a very loose connection. i was nearly going to scrap the Defender until a solution came to me while at work (yes i think about how to build a Moc while at work)  and it prooved it could be built and be very stable so stable infact that i can hold the Defender by one pylon and swoosh it around! once i had solved the wing issues the rest was just a matter of studying the few pictures there is of the Defender and turning it into the model itself, i have addd extra greeblies but not over done them. there is an interior to the cockpit will get some pictures asap.

Hopefully i will post pictures of my other UCS Mocs in a few days (B-Wing, Tie Hunter, Remake of the lego Tie interceptor and Shuttle Tydirium bsed on Dmacs version.)

I am honord that I was the inspiration.  This really turned out well.  I especially love the pylons, excellent work there.  Much different from my own design.  

I assume you were working off of rev 2.8 of my TIE Def design.  I have become aware of the flaws in that design.  I'll be building (and posting) revision 3 in a few weeks.  We'll see if I've taken care of all the bugs then.   :wink:
