This was a fairly easy kit-
Painting was similar to the TIE Boarding Craft, with a lot of light grey and black. I added a heavy wash to the vehicle, but I may later return to it and add more debris to it’s hull.
The TIE Crawler was the Empire’s answer to a fast ground assault vehicle, which if destroyed, wouldn’t cost much to rebuild. It featured the standard TIE ball cockpit with large tank treads attached on either side. A slender tail section featured multiple power cells, similar to those used in the AT-
The TIE Crawler could reach speeds of 90 km/h, and could quickly route enemy forces. It was however weak in the rear, but was designed to act like it’s space counterparts: mass overwhelming attack. Still, it wasn’t as “all terrain” as the walkers that continued to make up the backbone of the Imperial ground forces.
