|Star Wars Royal Guard TIE Interceptor
The Royal Guard was set up to protect the Emperor in the Star Wars universe. The TIE Interceptors they used were highly
modified from the standard ships and painted in the distinctive Royal Guard Crimson. More information about these ships can be
found in Wookiepedia (the Star Wars Wiki)
Jim Botaitis of JBOT decals gave me two little winglets that he had resin cast. It took me a long time to convince myself to paint a
TIE ship red!
