20m First Order TIE Fighters


Merry Christmas!

Here's my start on the First Order's TIE/fo from TFA. I'm taking the size from the cross sections book, which states the length as 6.67 meters. However, in the size comparison chart it shows the TIEs from the front rather than the side, so for the time being I'm taking 6.67 meters as the width. I'll probably also draw a version that's 6.67 meters long in case that is what it's supposed to be, but I really like how this size looks.

It's still a WIP for now, I haven't completed detailing on the rear view or started on the top and side yet. Comments welcome.

Re: TIE/fo


don't forget the cylinder of "power cells" arrayed at the panel/pylon interface, inboard of each "wing".

Actually, those are only on the Special Forces variant, the TIE/sf. JSYK.

Re: 20m First Order TIE Fighters


Hello again everyone. It's been a looong time since I've touched this thread. None of my original work survived into my current incarnation of the TIE/fo. Below is my current progress on both the TIE/fo and TIE/fs. All comments and criticism welcome.

Finalized TIE/fo, updated the shading and details. Yes I left out the comm antennas...those seem like an unnecessary detail since no other TIE variant seen on screen has needed antennas for comms.

Re: 20m First Order TIE Fighters


Wow, those are sweet as hell.

I'm curious though, did you take those stats as given and canon, or did you make an independent study of the size of the TIE - I believe there is a thread here in the reference section discussing that very thing. I love the work you did here, but I think more research on the size might be required before the TIE is finalized. that's just my opinion of course, feel free to disagree. emoticon

Re: 20m First Order TIE Fighters


Thank you emoticon

I know it goes against SWDA standard practice to use dimensions from reference materials, but I have a lot of confidence that Disney-era publications are basing their dimensions on accurately scaled CGI assets. What really boosted my confidence was when the R1 visual dictionary revised the X-Wing's length from 12.5 meters to 13.4 meters, which matched up with a detailed analysis I did of the X-Wing studio models a few years ago.

Another point of confidence is that the "Disney" dimensions for the TIE LN, FO, and SF all produce the same size cockpit ball and viewport. Past references, e.g. 6.3 meter length for TIE/LN and 9.6 meter length for TIE/IN, have resulted in cockpits and viewports not matching up.
