A Tale of Two TIEs

So, I haven’t been doing much over the past year. I hit a snag with Kylo’s Shuttle, and just kinda quit for a while. But, I did recently pick of Bandai’s TIE Interceptor and TIE Striker. These went together quickly, and I actually managed to paint and weather them. Check them out.

I’ve also written a new article on the size of Moldy Crow using lots of screenshots.

Finally, I wrote a very extensive piece on my favorite character, Asajj Ventress. I talk about her history somewhat. But primarily I discuss how she exhibits all the symptoms of PTSD. Anyway, I think it came out great, and it really hits on what makes her such an amazing character. Check it out here – Asajj Ventress – Tragic Hero.

Rogue One & Scale Updates

To start, I absolutely loved Rogue One. It was a near flawless Star Wars film in my opinion. There was just enough old and just enough new to make it fit perfectly before A New Hope. And there’s so many links to the original trilogy, that I’m sure many of us will be analyzing Rogue One over and over again.

For modelers, new ships means new models. So far Bandai and Revell haven’t disappointed in their lineup. However, by digitally recreating all of the OT vehicles to scale, some of the official sizes changed. X-wings, Y-wings, the AT-ST, and even the TIE Fighter have had their sizes altered.

Best part, my estimates of 7.3 meters for the TIE Fighter is almost spot on for the new official size: 7.24 meters. Yeah, it’s nerdy, but it makes me really happy.

I have updated all of Scale Lists, as well as the Official Sizes page to catalogue the changes. Cheers!

A few updates

I’ve added a Miscellaneous section to the Scale Lists. This section is for anyone who wants to send me dimensions of Star Wars vehicles I don’t own. I’ve also added a Thoughts section. This is my outlet for writing about just about anything. You are welcome to browse, but take everything with a grain of salt.

Also, I’ve added some initial pics of the Revell U-wing. And I am getting closer to finishing the painting on Kylo Ren’s Shuttle.
