I took some liberties with painting this one as well. Although all the filming models of TIEs were painted in a shade of blue, on screen, they appeared more grey. The TIE Interceptor had even more of a blue tone to it, but I decided that if displaying it with all the rest of the TIE’s, it would just look too out of place if it was painted blue. So I went back to my favourite shade of TIE Fighter grey.
Otherwise it is a reasonably straightforward kit. Other than I took a bit of extra time to fill and sand out some spots on the wing frames where the different pieces came together.
