I finally got done with the Tie Fighter tut and decided to fiddle with it a bit more -- so I added some simple color textures, headlights, dropped a few of them in front of a NASA pic, animated (so I could see what the 3D blur did), and fiddled a bit with the depth of field.
All in all, it was a fun tut and I've started working through the Apache.
Anyway, crits are welcome.
Also, I noticed that one of the small ties that are flying away from the camera appears to be reflected in one of the solar panels of the ship on the right. I used an anisotropic texture for the panel and was surprised when that happened.
