Here’s something easy I finished tonight. Just a simple repaint - a TIE Fighter in ANH deco. The TIE Fighters were more of a gray color in ANH. The gray TIE now looks much better with Vader’s TIE. I plan on doing a second one in the future.

I absolutely love this! Great job. I am firmly entrenched in the “Tie Fighters are GREY” camp so this is in accordance with my values.

I am eventually going to get around to doing a similar paint job to a Hot Wheels Elite Tie Fighter.

Made a second gray Tie Fighter based off ANH. I’m not taking pictures from different angles as its exactly the same as the first one I did lol. Vader's Action Fleet Tie is gray but a hint of blue, whereas mine are gray. Studying the pic you can see the hint of blue but at a quick glance they all look the same. I just think the gray ones look better flanking Vader than the blue ones.

I included a comparison picture with my customs with Vader's, along with the stock Tie Fighters next to Vader's so you can see the difference.

Great pics (and paintwork) - thanks for sharing!

The action fleet TIE is my favourite Action Fleet vehicle!
Thanks! Out of all the Ties, this one was the easiest to paint. However, doing the wings, especially the inside part of them were pretty annoying. If any paint got on the wing panels, I left it and went back later and dry-brushed some black to cover it up.

As @Tyranusspotting said, it would have been nice to get this as a variant, seeing they made all types of Rebel variants. Pretty cool though, now I have both Tie Fighter variants from ANH and Empire/Jedi.
