Ever since I found the article about Ugly Starfighters on Wookieepedia, I loved them. Now I finally got around to build one: The Z'ceptor, a combination of a Tie Interceptor and a Z-95 Headhunter.
The best thing about building Uglies is, no one cares about the mix of old grey and bley, it even supports the messy look of it.
Great ship! I love the 'ugly', barren, minimalist look to it. Very cool idea with the implied windshield - I've never seen that before. Two questions: What is that maroon thing beneath the R2 unit? And how do you get such great lighting?
Wow, certainly looks ugly ;) Not really, it's really cool, it really captures the real thing! Next I think it would be cool to make that Y-TIE! Please check this out:
The Greebles! They're killing me! Ahh! Wow, man, this is anything but ugly. This is amazing. I might use that ion cannon design sometime (I'd give you credit of course), and it is really accurate too (based off the picture on wookiepedia). Great job my friend. ~Waff
