Fine Molds makes really nice kits

Here is their 1/72 scale TIE-Fighter. I call this my 'lucky' model, it took first place in the sci-fi category at an IPMS contest. This was my first really successful wash, testors enamyl over acryl base of 'intermediate blue'. It brought out the details very nicely, I think. I hated the base that came with this, so I bought a clear plastic 'half ball' piece and attached the center-post with 2-part drying clay/putty. I put a bit of a tilt in the center-post to give it more of an 'action' pose.
