Star Wars Alternative Camo schemes - Group Build Proposal

Bandai are the best for sure, and revell sell them in europe, Bandai kits and box with revell sticker on side. Actual Revell kits can be soft on detail and some random scales. Finemolds are great but are out of production so hard to get a hold of.

I’ve seen the Bandai AT-AT and it is excellent, although quite small, and relatively expensive. I have the Bandai AT-ST and can’t wait to build it. And I’ve just found out revell are bringing the Bandai Y-wing and A-wing here in April.

And, revell have announced a 1/72nd Razorcrest for June!

I think some research and searching is in order… I definitely will be doing ground armour…

@iwatajim where did you hear that about the Revell of Germany making a 1/72 Razorcrest ship, can you provide me a link as I would love to read it.

I have come across this resin kit from a video with no link to where it is from.

Has anyone else seen the maker?

@Mrclark7 I think it something to do with the table top game Star Wars Legion

How about here? Revell Announces 1:72 Razor Crest in 2021

Looks like a nice kit if Revell get it right…

Probably be a crappy snapfit kit aimed at kid’s, unless Bandai have helped with it.

The AT-ACT was a snap kit and with a little help via shapeways looks good. Snap doesn’t mean bad automatically.

No, but going by Revell’s recent attempts at the Star Wars universe stuff I’m not holding out much hope.

@JohnnyO got to it before me, thanks @Tank_1812. Someone on RPF, or maybe starshipmodeller posted about it and included the same link, near the bottom of the page. And obviously my German is rubbish, October for the Razorcrest, and June for the Bandai kits, I think…

Frankly I’m happier about the 1/72nd Ywing and Awing, but if the razorquest is even halfway good, I’m sure I’ll be purchasing it. I binge watched the two series of the Mandalorian over Christmas and I must say I very much enjoyed it. Frankly the best live action Star Wars content since Jedi as far as I’m concerned. Also watched the making of series, fascinating!

Cheers, Jim.

Likewise Jim, I got Disney + just for Dec so I could watch it all. I like how they brought some old characters back into it in a believable way.

It is a definite much watch series for me. Really invigorated my love for Star Wars after the last couple of films.
Looking forward to seeing how it all pans out, espaically with Ahsoka looking for Thrawn.

The wife and I have enjoyed watching the series. As a matter of fact, I just restarted the series right now.

Yeah, I liked it so much It seems to have affected my avatar! When you watch how they made it, especially the first series, it is quite incredible. I’m glad I didn’t know how they did it before I watched it though, I was sure they had spent countless millions on sets and on location filming… and the fact they used the fan costume guys of the 501st legion for the mass stormtrooper scenes, priceless!

I suspect these are just reboxes of the Bandai kits

Yeah, that’s what makes me happy. It’s just about impossible to get either for a decent price here in the uk. I managed to buy the Bandai bwing for under £40 when revell repopped them here last year so hope to do the same with these.

Cheers, Jim.

I’m hoping that Revell re-issue the Bandai figures, as I have General Grevious in my wishlist on Amazon (forgot to put it in my basket when it was released ), now there is only one available for £142 :joy:.

No doubt there is, but too tell the truth I haven’t looked yet, just noticed the one in my Amazon basket and thought it was funny how some people think we are idiots :joy:.
