3d Printed Tie Advanced X1 - Darth Vader's Personal Tie Fighter

One of my first large-scale, detailed prints: Darth Vader's Tie Advanced X1.
I was really pleased with the details included in this model.
The scale is actually pretty big - The print is approximately 8 inches long, 6 inches wide, and 5 inches tall. 
The build was completed in two parts, and it was sliced down the center of the cockpit.
The front of the Tie actually had to be printed twice, due to warping on the print-bed. The PLA wasn't properly pre-heated which caused the wings to curl slightly off the bed.



Here you can see the degree of warping.
And the flat build. Oh, so flat, so nice.

Thanks for reading!
