Both fighters feature opening cockpits with space for a minifigure and spring-loaded shooters. The kit is splendid and goes together very nicely and is a joy to build.
Once complete the final model is a great display piece. However the box has sat for sometime and does have shelfware damage to the box as shown in the pictures. It features larger, more angular wings than other fighters, and an extended engine block with a reinforced hull. Because this set is intended for display instead of play, it comes with a special stand and a collector’s card with detailed specifications.With a total of 1, 212 pieces, this is an extensive build, and it is not recommended for children younger than 14. It’s not as easy as the newer sets in which the bags are marked for each section of the build.
I recommend getting bins for the bags so it’s easier to find the pieces needed for each step of the build. When created, the size will be surprised and amazed at the fine details.
