Yes, ANOTHER thread with MOD´s of the Imperial Shuttle and First Order TIE. :) Well I thought I´d share these anyway. The Imperial shuttle is one of my favourite vehicles of the OT, so what started with a couple of tiles ended up with a couple of Bricklink orders. The wings are made in the same way as the top fin (and UCS wings). Bricks and Technic beams. The end result turned out very nice. The cockpit needed to be thinner when made out of all white parts. The designers of 75094 and 10212 used gray in a very clever way to make the cockpit look thin yet still hold figs. In my flickr there is a before and after photo of the cockpit during the mod. There is no room for a copilot anymore but the troop area remained unchanged. Alot of tweaks and rebuilds later I feel finished. There is room for improvement but at the moment i´m satisfied. b] shuttle01 by mordatre, on Flickr shuttle03 by mordatre, on Flickr shuttle04 by mordatre, on Flickr shuttle08 by mordatre, on Flickr And now the First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter 75101. Main differences are the now white wings and the inner spokes on the wings. The inner spokes are, as you know a problem since the first TIE Fighter released. I am satisfied with the solution I came up with using technic connectors and axles. I tried using longer axles but then they bent outwards because of the plates, so I used the shorter ones for a sleeker look. The top cannon got rebuilt to look more like the one on Hasbro´s model. I also extended the main body so the model is two studs wider than the official set.

He inspired me to make my own. I based mine on 75101. I´m currently awaiting parts to incorporate the spokes on the inside of the wings as I did on my Special Forces TIE. Other than that this one is also two studs wider. FirstorderTIEfighter02 by mordatre, on Flickr FirstorderTIEfighter04 by mordatre, on Flickr FirstorderTIEfighter03 by mordatre, on Flickr
