This is one of THE most inspiring images I've seen in years, from the perspective of an ardent model maker who scratch-builds just about everything, as you just can't get the stuff I like to build on the commercial market. I've been thinking for many years about building a 1/48 scale floating landing pad, to go with the Star Wars Imperial craft I've built to go with my collection of 25 mm miniatures, and THIS is perfect for what I had in mind, if slightly smaller and with certain differences in detail (I'll be building the landing platform from the from the graphite/rubber support bases of a set of old traffic cones I found dumped on some wasteland, so the size of my finished piece will fit around 9 - 12 craft like this, plus my 1/48 scale Millennium Falcon that I have almost finished building), as I have a few ideas of my own to throw into the mix :-)
This image, however, is sublime, and I love the one working lamp, which adds SO much character to the image, and fills in much unnoticed background into the state of a crumbling Empire.
Thank you so much for posting this beautiful piece of art, and even more thanks for inspiring me to further efforts in my own field of creative expression.

Thanks a lot :) I'd love to see your miniatures! It's always fascinating seeing these, as physical models always have a special kind of magic to them.

I like your version if the TIE Fighter better than the original.
Fighters are supposed to be big, the X-wing and Y wing were actually supposed to be bigger but smaller models were built because using the larger models on set made shooting the Yavin hangar scenes in A New Hope too difficult and expensive.

I love alternate TIE fighter designs and I really love this one.

So awesome! I can't wait till you start producing 3D scale models of these. I'd buy one of these TIE Fighters in a heartbeat, provided it's in a defined scale (1:72 would be my preferred scale).

Very nice! I like it with the landing pad feature. Awesome work!

Thanks ! The pad was originally designed to be an Imperial logo but I changed that at the last moment :)

Both elegant and threatening, it looks like it's built for speed - even when docked.

(Mind if I borrow it as a "future TIE Fighter" visual aid for a tabletop RPG?)

You can borrow the ship, just credit me somewhere :)

Great landing pad design, compliments the work on the TIE fighter nicely...

Thanks :) I based it on the TIE's cockpit and Empire's logo, byt having the platform base on a 6-sided object.

Nicely done - both the ship and the landing pad, and both in terms of design and render quality. great work!

Pretty slick, it sure looks more robust then the usual TIE variants =p I bet it could have a hyperdrive!

Yep most of my TIEs are more advanced than the standard suicide vessels from the Empire :)
