Along those lines, I've been doing some Star Wars "Metal Earth" kits. They're fun, though the results can vary pretty wildly.

Vary wildly because of the quality from the source, or the skill/patience of the assembler?

A little from column A, a little from column B.

There are some models with joints that I found extremely difficult to make solid. Maybe I just missed a good way to do it, or maybe they were just poor joints. Either way, my TIE fighter has wiggly wings.

The Star Destroyer, however, is solid as a brick. The AT-AT and Millennium Falcon are almost as good.

It's also a function of how solid the eventual shape is. The Star Destroyer is very solid and angular, so it's got an inherent advantage. The TIE is a hard design to do; I just don't think they sufficiently overcame that difficulty.

I can see the TIE would be a tough shape, usually the best tact is to not make the joint where two planes meet, but mold that transition and move the assembly joint out a little from the junction. They probably figure these won't be played with like toys, but usually only moved to show someone or for dusting. Or they think you might get frustrated and buy another kit.

Made using a triangle hole punch and the packaging from a phone case and screen protector.

It's only taped on the inside, so it looks sort of loose.

More hole punch art.

Ghirardelli chocolate bar wrappers hole-punched, taped together on the inside, colored with Sharpies, taped on the outside, and then recolored, but only the squiggly lines.

And another, made out of some crafting metal sheets my mom had been saving since she was in high school:



It changes from silver to copper colored, based on viewing angle.
