TIE Defender

Original POV-Ray model by Dylan Beattie

OK, so it's not in any of the films and it's a bit obscure, but it's a mean-looking piece of hardware and it wasn't too difficult to put together, so here it is - the Sienar Fleet Systems TIE Defender. Another one written completely in POV-Ray, and incorporating elements from the other TIE models, the dimensions are based on 'The Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels' and the textures are a 'best guess' based on the other TIE vessels.

Imperial Star Destroyer

Original 3D mesh from Star Wars Modelling Alliance
POV-Ray conversion and texturing by D M Beattie

The mesh was converted to POV-Ray using Keith Rule's Crossroads 3D utility, and then the textures and a few other bits added by hand in POV-Ray. Up close it looks a little flat, but it looks great looming in the background...
