  1. The Star Wars expanded universe (Legends) offers a wide variety of inspiration for MOCs and MODs. Here are 2 simple MODs based on the excellent sets that are the #9492 TIE-Fighter and the #9495 Gold Leader's Y-Wing Starfighter. Take both of these sets, mix them with the rich Star Wars expanded universe, add an inch of colour, shake all along, and serve them hot. You get Uglies on the rock! Uglies by Veynom, on Flickr Uglies are un-registered spaceships assembled from scavenged parts and recycled modules of other ships. These part's origins range from battlefields, crashes, decommissioned vessels, military leftover and so on. Everything which can be reused will be reused, sometimes with luck, most of the time without. Uglies are mainly used by pirates, mercenaries and other para-miliraty organisations looking for cheap and untraceable ships. Uglies offer the advantages of being cheap to produce and are relatively easy to find on the black market. But those are the only advantages that one can find them. I have decided to build two of the most famous Uglies: the Y-TIE and the TYE-Wing. Y-TIE The Y-TIE is the improbable combination of a Y-Wing cockpit and body with the wings and ionic engines of a TIE-Ln. This model is quite common among uglies during the Galactic Empire's rule due to the numerous battles between Imperial forces and rebel fighters. The resulting surprising spacecraft is a heavy, slow, and barely manoeuvrable ship offering good resistance and impressive firepower. Y-TIE by Veynom, on Flickr Side view showing the full length of the Y-TIE and how the cockpit is exposed outside of the wings: Y-TIE by Veynom, on Flickr Top view where I simply added some details and played with colors: Y-TIE by Veynom, on Flickr Y-TIE by Veynom, on Flickr Y-TIE by Veynom, on Flickr And a back view showing that I decided to keep the flicker missile for playability purpose. (kids...) Y-TIE by Veynom, on Flickr TYE-Wing The TYE-Wing - kindly nicknamed DIE-Wing by the pilots and their mechs is the hybrid fruit between a TIE ball cockpit and Y-Wing engine pods. This very lightly armoured fighter also benefits from a very light armament. The DIE-Wing succeeds in combining the worst of bith the TIE-Ln and the Y-Wing with the added challenge of avoiding all of their advantages. This is no surprise how it came to get his nickname. TYE-Wing (DIE-Wing) by Veynom, on Flickr A few 4x4 round plates are required to correctly adjust the engine pods. Based on your available colors, you may end-up with another painting job. The sticker is there just because I could. TYE-Wing (DIE-Wing) by Veynom, on Flickr Backside: TYE-Wing (DIE-Wing) by Veynom, on Flickr Frontview: TYE-Wing (DIE-Wing) by Veynom, on Flickr During Lego fairs, these 2 Uglies complete very well my displayed collection of TIEs and rebel Wings, while offering a nice touch of colours and raising many questions. Comments welcome. ;)
