Very nicely done, pity the movie was a bit of a let down, hopefully "Rogue One", will be better.

Yes, it's one of the snap fits and doesn't suffer in the least for it. The fit is incredible, I ran some Extra Thin into the joints more out of habit than necessity. I painted the grey and some of the metal areas, the rest is either the blue plastic or decal. When I do another one (I'm sure there will be more :wink: ) I wouldn't use the metallic decal for the intake lips, I'll cut off the coloured part to apply and paint the metal, also I'll mask and paint the canopy. Weathering was an overall slosh over with dark Flory wash and I let it build up in a few places whilst cleaning off the excess. If I can find my metallic pencils I might do some chipping.

These kits are a real hoot, even if you're not a Star Wars fan give them a go, they're wonderful things.
