Symbols of the Imperial Navy
Symbols of the Imperial Navy - composed of Kuat, a TIE-Defender, and Grand Admiral Thrawn - is my entry to the My Own Planet contest (2012).
About this creation
This is my entry for the My Own Planet contest (2012). Entries can be seen here.

Picture editing credits go to Onasha Katr.

For this contest, I decided to work on a theme and quickly came with the idea of displaying key elements of the Imperial Navy. For the microscale ship, I hesitated between the Interdictor and the TIE-Defender. I finally selected the latter. The minifg almost imposed itself: the famous and genius Grand Admiral Thrawn. Then came the planet. What planet could have been a symbol of the Imperial Navy: Kuat of course, home of the Kuat Drive Yards. But after checking for the Kuat article on Wookieepedia I must admit that I cursed. There is a belt of naval shipyard around the planet and I would have to show it somehow.

The TIE-Defender is my first mini-scale model and I am honestly satisfied with the results. The wings are at the right angle and closely aligned with the central 2x4 plate. The trick here was to use a hammer to connect to the technic part used for the central core. A simple stick is used as connector for the cockpit-core-reactor section.

A front view displaying well the famous shape of the TIE-Defender. Angles of the wings are well respected.

I used a simple chain of 2x1 plates for the shipyard belt but the result is there, I think.

But I can tell you that making a small sphere looking remotely like a temperate planet is a nightmare. My stock of pieces being composed mainly of legacy colors from the 80's or more recent colors from Star Wars sets, I had to borrow colorful pieces from my children and both of them accepted. Happily I offered some Friends Lego to my daughter. ;)

Awesome work, wish it were a real model. Miss playing with the TIE-Defender on games. Great rendition of it.

Fantastic work! The Tie Defender is awesome, and great work on the planet and Thrawn as well.
