Tie fighters are usually stoared on and launched from racks, so with landing gears they would be very different from the rest of the tie-fighters.

of course, if it's a long range fighter/bomber/scout then perhaps landing gears would be needed for more remote locations.

Well the idea was that this would be a dedicated close air support/ground attack craft. So I thought in a long term deployment, they might be serviced by ground bases, but I suppose a ground base could have racks just the same as a ships hangar bay.

Of course landing gear would allow it to stay with the ground troops if the mother ship were called away to other duties. I decided this craft wouldn't have hyperdrive capabilities so if the mother ship leaves then they are stuck.

I'll work on it some and post a version with the gear and see how it goes...

Thanks for the input!

Well, where necessary standar TIE fighters would just land on their wings/solar panels.. so no real need for a landing gear.

As for the model: that's a very nice concept!

hmmm... I always thought the wings looked too fragile to support the weight of the fighter, but I suppose it's possible. I think I'll continue with the landing gear, but as optional gear to be used when needed. Glad you like it though!
