#79 Sunday's SET ANALYSIS: 75179 Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer

Today we will look at one of The Last Jedi sets, from the most recent Star Wars wave. Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter strikes a menacing presence, and is reminiscent to his grandfather's TIE Advanced. Let's look at some of the techniques that are present in this starfighter.

1. Colour contrasts - breaks up main colour scheme with dark bluish grey, and dark red and dark tan in the cockpit 2. Hinges - Allow wings to be angled 3. Translucent - Highlight the cockpit and allow you to see into the interior 4. SNOT bricks - used to angle certain parts to create shape of the starfighter 5. Weapons - created with technic parts and include spring loaded shooters for playability 6. Slopes - used to create smooth shape of main body
