The TIE Starfighters are fictional starfighters in the Star Wars universe. Propelled by Twin Ion Engines (hence the TIE acronym), TIE fighters are depicted as fast, fragile starfighters produced by Sienar Fleet Systems for the Galactic Empire. TIE fighters and other TIE craft appear in the original Star Wars trilogy. TIE fighters' solar panels power a twin ion engine (TIE) system that accelerates gases at a high speed along almost any vector, affording the ships tremendous speed and maneuverability. Described as lacking a hyperdrive, life support, or shield generators, the fragile TIE fighters are deployed in large numbers from bases or larger ships; a Star Destroyer carries a wing of 72 various TIE craft.
The TIE Starfighter is a good FIRST model to make. The steps you learn in making this model will help you understand how all the other B. C. Air Originals planes are made, (put together) since they are all make "basically" the same way.
I put together my first Beer Can Airplane in 1984, and although I've been building airplanes since the age of 5 and have made them out of virtually everything you can imagine, since then (now age 63) I haven't made an airplane out of anything other than Beer and Pop Cans. The material is easy to work with, inexpensive and makes GREAT looking little Airplanes that people really enjoy.
Aside from being a lot of FUN to make, these planes are just challanging enough to help keep your mind active. They are a wonderful form of theropy and make great Father/Son or GrandDad/GrandSon projects that are sure to impress your friends.
My TIE Starfighter is made from 7-UP Pop Cans
but it can be made out of ANY 12 or 16 oz Beer or Pop Can.
