#1235 TECHNIQUE DISCUSSION: TIE Fighter techniques

Today, we’re looking at the ingenious LEGO engineering that builders have used to mimic the tricky spherical shape of the Empire’s TIE fighters. Each builder uses wedges, slopes, and curved elements in various ways to approximate the smooth, round cockpit of the fighter—carefully positioning the elements with hinges and SNOT techniques.
