Are you going to make a shot from Darth Vader's TEI fighter?
And how did you make the TEI's laser (the green ones)?

Hope you don't mind these questions...

PS: Once you have finished this project, are you going to make an other space fight of your own using the models?
Anyway, the stuff is looking good!

Got to have Darth in it

The lasers are really stretched out spheres lambert white with ambient turned full up, then went into shader glow att and played with the glow and halo ( which is green)

Dont know how long this project will take me but next is either hoth battle or dinosaurs!

Woah looks great :attn:

How much time did you spend on this one?

EDIT: I have a questions: How are you going to make realistic looking explosions and damage models?

Compared to the movie, this is too dark. You should be able to say all of the TIE driver's "face".

Yes, there should be a little more lighting on the helmet. The rest looks awesome!
