I know but calling it the HEX fighter instead of the TIE helps prevent DIsney execs from looking it up and sending me a cease and desist letter

Not to be a stickler but it would probably help if you called it by its proper name, which is the TIE Defender. Hex fighter have never been the name of it (regardless of what Micromachines has to say). Most people looking for this kind of SW model are going searching for it as the TIE Defender, so it'll help you get hits on your product. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/TIE/D_Defender

Got this in FUD, which in my opinion is well worth it. Detail and durability are excellent-- I'd put it in between plastic and resin. This is a beautiful miniature, great for gaming. Regarding the issue of basing, obviously there's no hole pre-drilled. I use rare earth magnets to connect my minis with the stems, for ease and safety of storage/transport, so this wasn't an issue for me. Overall, highly recommended.

I will see what i can do. i use a 3d flight system with wire going into the back of the fighter so i often forget to make the hole in the bottom

Very nice indeed and fits very well alongside my existing fleet of the old micromachines 'Empire Hex fighters' . I found the detail in WSF quite adequate. One suggestion though - since anyone buying one of these is going to want to put it on a flying stand, could you have included a hole for this on the underside of the fuselage? I found it quite fiddly to drill this myself, as it is a bit fragile to clamp in a vice.
