Studio Scale Star Wars TIE Bomber Replica

At the recent Replica Prop Forum project showcase, we met visual effects modelmaker Jonathan Faber, who brought his scratch-built studio scale TIE Bomber. This model is an exacting replica of the filming miniature used in The Empire Strikes Back, including the greeblies sourced from WWII and rocket kits like the ones used by ILM’s modelmakers. Plus, Jonathan shows us his newest project, a cross-section miniature!

    1. I make 85 dollars each hour for working an online job at home. QAAZ I never thought I could do it but my best friend makes 10000 bucks every month working this job and she recommended me to learn more about it. The potential with this is endless.
      For more detail …….

  1. Would love a link to the RPF thread where this collaboration took place. Has made me curious about getting into Studio Scale models myself!

  2. For me the TIE Interceptor from Return of the Jedi is my jam, but I can definitely appreciate the passion and effort into making this! Well done Jonathan!
