Final build of the Galatica kits - Moebius Classic Raider. From the original series, resembling a typical foe. This 3 seater dwarfs the Viper kits in comparison. Unfortunately, no figures or landing gear. Very basic kit but well detailed with memorable sound effects suspiciously like your Nan's Electrolux or Hoover Vacuum Cleaner (those who know will know what I mean). The box isn't huge - but the kit wastes no space inside it. Painted all over with Tamiya Light Royal Gray - which turns out to be the ideal base colour for adding weathering/toning etc. Decals were useless, so these were sprayed on (there's only 2 hexes anyway). The clear base seen is provided, however, a 1/72 Spitfire will easily fit inside the stand... so you've been warned.
