The boxApparently we're already on the third run of these Lego Star Wars miniplanet kits. There were a bunch of them, many totally uninteresting like the rebel scum's vehicles (though I was definitely interested in the Tantive IV (or I misinterpreted the picture) for a moment), but TIE Bomber is something I couldn't walk past. After a short argument with myself I said that "I think I need this one" and just got it.
ContentsThis photo is horrible, I admit it. There's the ball depicting an asteroid field, the leaflet and two bagfuls of pieces. I guess you can't expect huge amounts of parts from a miniscale set. There were more than I had excpected, to be honest.
AssemblageEveryone and their grandmother knows the T/B so I shall not waste time in explaining it to you. The two-tube hull is nicely recognizeable and the neat TIE series window is also a clear identificator. I do approve of this.
At this point it was already done, just the wings were missing. While taking these pics I hadn't realized that the targeting sensor pod was on the wrong side in the instructions (below the cockpit unit) and I didn't think and flip it on the proper side. What kind of unexpert clowns do they hire to design these things... Details are important!
Because of the scale the wings ended up being completely black, as if there were no frames around the solar collector panels. Anyway, I think it's a really neat model for its size.
