One for Star Wars fans - Easy little snap kit bought on a whim - built OOB (comes with a stand) all I gave it was a dark wash for detail.

Kit does come with a 'bright blue' back end but it had a wire holding it and efflux edited with P'shop.

Not really.

There are estimates available on the web but as with all Revell Star Wars kits there is an issue of size discrepancy between the model and the crew. This particular model is estimated to be of less than 1:72 - probably between 1:75 and 1:80 - but the crew figures are about 1:72.

Same problem occurs with Revell's Shuttle Tydirium which is in 1:110 or 1:120 scale but figures are 1:72, and the cockpit inside is made in different scale then the rest of the model.
