Weird engines on the X Wing.  Are those from the new movie?


Yeap for some reason they haven't really highlighted the Force Awakens branding you would have expected.

That the T-70 X-wing updated version with the single wing S-foil where the foward half tilts down and the rear half tilts up to create the X-wing profile. Just a pity Revell use box scales and focus on the toy aspect, where as the Bandai versions are standard scales, but due to draconian licencing are only available for the far east market (Including the on-line & ebay outlets that used to sell them globally !!)

Ah yes, I can see the fore/aft split wings now.
Y Wings are more my cup of tea.

Maybe Disney haven't forced the manufacturers to splash The Force Awakens all over them because they know they can re-issue them in TFA boxes closer to the release date and get the collectors to buy them all over again?

Am I alone in thinking The Mouse is going to strip the guts out of this franchise leaving nothing but a desiccated husk viewed with contempt by once keen fans?

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

Airfix Dinah.  Ancient kit - but better than I remembered - originally for whiffing but one of the colour schemes convinced me that it will be a real world build.

Although whiffery's siren song may yet win out.

Much potential, even though the kit is rather primitive.  :-\

Sorry, I thought from what you had said that is was lost as in "missing" not "damaged beyond repair".

At least you know any problems in building the kit.

Can they really be any worse than Georgie-boy himself?

Well, at least GL had *some* vested interest in keeping his product relatively 'pristine and pure' - "The Mouse"es Beancounters will fold, spindle and mutilate anything they get their sticky mitts on, in the name of profit.

Does anyone else find it vaguely (or even extremely) disturbing to think Leia and Amidala are now 'Disney Princesses'?   :blink: :blink:
