After crashing with his model 7150 Tie Fighter on some deserted desert moon he decided to take action in his own cyborg mechanicaly enhanced hands.

He quickly rose to the occasion and after reading the rule book started rebuilding his trusty yet allready outdated fighter.

After several hours, of building, adjusting and tweaking he finally finished his personal ship nicknamed "Scraps". Just before sunset he took of looking for Imperial troops dreaming of a better looking TIE fighter still.

Well done L-space, it looks like a very viable alternative model from the backs of those old sets, very bat-like (great for DV :vader:)

Very well done, especially considering you only used one sets worth of parts!

Great entry L-Space. As usual your sense of humour and photoshop editting skills really add to the finished result. Good luck in the contest!
