This is by far the ugliest thing I've ever made...

I made it from the imperial inspection shuttle, the Tie interceptor, and the JSF. (the Ep. 3 one)

Ditch the JSF cockpit hanging off the back and it would feel more natural...

Is it just me, or is that actually pretty cool? Oh, whoops, I'm guessing thats not what you're aiming for. Wink Yup, pretty ugly, or is that cool? Ugly? Cool? Confused

Thanks Smile

I'll remove the JSF cockpit though.
and it's supposed to be cool, yet ugly at the same time.

This isn't actually all that ugly, besides the colors clashing. If you have 7661, try substituting that for the yellow one. Then again, maybe the color issue is what you were going for.
This kinda reminds me of the TIE Defender (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/TIE/D_Defender), which is the best TIE Fighter ever, hands down.

That's actually a much better MOC than it seems. I agree, the JSF ball at the back should go, but otherwise, it's a fine piece of flying wreckage. And in the SW galaxy, wreckage flies.

Who braked too fast in this lineup? It's pretty good, you've caught the clash of the ships effect but, I feel there is a little too much going on, maybe have a little less of one ship?

That did sort of stick out, should look better without it.

To answer who crashed first, you must work out which one was the worst pilot..

This has inspired me to build an ugly. Using the body of the y-wing and the wings of a tie fighter or int.

Firstly, why did you answer your own question?

And finally, my answer - as the TIE is at the front, you can assume that it was at the front. Looking at how the wings are placed, and how it is unlikely it is for a ship to cause that much damage in reverse, you can assume that the TIE was collided into.
This means the shuttle must have crashed into the TIE.
When you look at the Jedi Starfighter, you can see the cockpit has been forced backwards. Once more it is unlikely that the shuttle backed into it, so we can assume that collided last.
Here's a diagram of the above:
JSF -> IS -> TIE

It was an addition to my question that was put forward. After I had an unsure answer I decided to add an addition to it.

Also, I wasn't really expecting a response, but thanks anyway.
