Imperial TIE Interceptor              (Featured in the STAR WARS trilogy
with pilot                                                by LucasFilm Ltd.)

Manufacturer: Sienar Fleet Systems (SFS)
Weapons: Four SFS L-s9.3 laser cannons
Crew: One pilot
Speed: 125 MGLT, not hyperdrive equipped.

Hello, I have attempted to design a slightly different TIE interior and pilot
with fans of the Star Wars films, games, and plastic model kits in
mind. The model is original except for parts of the pilot's body,
which is converted from some Zygote figures I purchased.

The top hatch can be posed open. Tilt it back fifty degrees
using part "TH50pivot" as the hinge-point.

* HuB111US = Hu-B-111-US

Hu=Hull (prefix), T_=transparent as glass (opacity).
B=Bulkhead (part name)
111=color (number (in gray scale)), Cri=crimson, DrG=dark green, etc.
TH=Top Hatch (suffix), BH=Back Hatch, US=Unsmoothed -VERY IMPORTANT!!
Not all parts have suffixes. If the part does NOT have a "_US" or "US"
as a suffix it means that part is smoothed to a 45-89 degree angle.

I regret that the eight-character-type hierarchy (parts
list) is not as clear as it could be. Some programs
truncate the instance names to eight characters. I also
do this for maximum 3ds format compatibility. I hope
the above key helps. I will try to answer your email
questions or critiques.

The instrument panels have separate back panels and front
"glass" so you may remove the gizmo's I came up with and
apply your own with textures and reflection maps.

I hope you find the model interesting. Jim Bassett
