Cool and funny looking kit. Included electronics in a kit is always a plus for me.

I agree. I have a few stalled projects with various electronic lighting including doing one from scratch.

A buddy did a lighted Bandai Tie Fighter and I had the old Amt/Ertl kit sitting around. I am using his electrical design and parts recommendations. I also have the Amt/Ertl Darth Vader Tie Fighter with a light kit from eBay and finally a BSG Mark II with somebody’s extra lighter bits.

Some parts and one example wired up.

That is a great idea.

The wife dragged me to Hobby Lobby and was shocked when it was 40% off plastic that I bought some kits. :man_shrugging::crazy_face:

Already had an R2 unit but I saw this guy the other day

and well you know….watching Book of Boba Fett didn’t help the will power.

It’s a really nice kit isn’t it!
I got one on its first release. Have yet to actually start it.

yeah, it actually is. I wasn’t sure what to expect before I opened the box.

The interior is very nicely done and so are the figures. Good size too.
I did pick up a decal set which had the interior stenciling, instrument panel etc. I can’t remember who made it right now, but I think I got it from Starshipmodeler.com store. Might be worth checking out if the reissue still lacks them.

At the moment, I’m waiting on the 1/350 USS Grissom to arrive. Think they’re on the slow boat to the UK!

They’re definitely somewhere!
Have had it on pre-order for months. Unrelated, but I’ve been waiting for the Amiga A500mini for just as long and it’s release keeps getting delayed. I’m hoping both arrive by the Easter holidays so I have something to play with!
