Model building is a great way to develop learning skills and increase dexterity.
Join the World of Model Building
There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of building a model. But did you know that studies show that building a model can help develop coordination, improve dexterity, and advance reading comprehension skills? Plus, it’s a great way to inspire creativity! Whether you’re new to the hobby, an experienced builder, or just looking for a project to share with a child or grandchild, it’s time to discover the thrill in being able to say, “I made that!”

The Story Behind the Model
The Y-wing Fighter is regarded as one of the most durable and reliable fighters in the galaxy. Specially designed for close combat and developed as an attack fighter and bomber, the Starfighter is also suitable for escort duty. The armament primarily consists of laser cannon and rotary ion cannon, but this can be varied to include proton torpedoes and bombs. For a long time the Y-wings occupied a special position in the Rebel Alliance as their most impressive Starfighter and the flagship of the Alliance. This striking multi-role fighter has twin engines and can withstand very heavy fire, but it has a limited payload and is inferior to the latest Imperial assault craft in terms of speed, stealth and manoeuvrability. Behind the cockpit of the Y-wing there is an R2 or R5 droid to assist the pilots, in front of a Class I Hyperdrive engine in the mid-section between the two outriggers. In particular in the battle against the death star the Y-wing fighters returned to the fore.

Helpful Hints For Building
Your Y-Wing Fighter is a Level 1 kit - it's perfect for anyone new to model kit building, as well as experienced builders. Always study the assembly drawings included in the packaging before beginning. Each plastic part is identified by a part number. This kit may be snapped together, but for extra stability, you may want to cement or glue the parts as well. Trimming to remove extra plastic and filing to smooth before part assembly is suggested. If you're looking to take the next step in model building, don't miss any of the Revell glue model kits - like the Revell Star Wars®Republic Star Destroyer Model Kit.

Customer Questions & Answers

Why there is not one is very odd, as it really needs one.
W. G. Clay
Detail wise it is very good for a snap kit and with a bit of super detailing can be made to a Fine Mold level of modelling detail.
Modeler
The model itself is fine but over-priced for the 1/72nd scale kit.

Initially, I was quite surprised at how small the model kit itself is compared to the fairly large box that it came in. A lot of the box was simpley open space, so don't be decieved into thinking it's a big model.

I don't know what scale this model's in, but I have some private doubts about it being in the same scale as Revell's X-Wing starfighter since the Astro Droid and Rebel Pilot figures are both smaller than the X-Wing's. The Y-Wing itself it exactly the same length as the X-Wing, from blaster tip to rear thruster cages. It measures around 8.5 inches long. (Honesly, I thought the Y-Wing would be a little longer and bigger compared to the X-Wing, but at least it isn't any smaller than it's famous counterpart.)

As far as the model itself goes, it's a simple build, and since it is a Level 1 Beginner model, no paint, glue, or any other toxic chemicals are needed to complete the model right out of the box. Just snap and go. However, it looks rather bland without some black lining to go in the crevices. There's a whole world of detail on this thing, but you need to put in some time and effort to bring them out with a lining marker or paint. Another slight quirk I have with it (which really isn't the model's fault) is that there haven't been any incarnations of the Y-Wing with it's hull plates still attached. Therefore, after it's fully lined, there's so much complicated detail that it looks a little off next to the less intricate X-Wing. The rear thrusters could also use a little painting. The opening cockpit hatch is a nice little gimmick that Revell was kind enough to include, but after assembly, it's too tight, and you can barely open it. Therefore, to remedy this, I suggest cutting off the peg that locks it in place.

I just got this toys and I`m so glad.I would say this toys is remind me when I was little.I used to have Tie fighter and X-wing back in late 70`s and I still have it.I remember I asked my parent to get the Y-wing for Christmas but it didn`t happen because of money.I finally have this and I thought this toys will look different and bad according from previous review.But,I really like it.The toys is not very authentic look but it is worth to collect it.I`m Star Wars fans basically I like the classic one and This toys is great to have it.

One thing I hate is false advertising. Have you noticed that both the SNOWSPEEDER
and the Y-WING are advertised as being 20 X 14 X 17.5 but yet everyone is saying the Y-Wing is the same size as the 1/72 scale Fine Molds version. I have the Finemolds version and it's exactly 9.75 inches long not 20" inches. Some one needs to stop printing this kind of false advertising. It may be the size of the box but not the size of the model! That is also another kind of deception I can't deal with.

I am a big fan of the Revell Star Wars snap together models, but I was a little disappointed with this one. The scale seems a little smaller than the Darth Vader tie fighter and the awesome imperial shuttle. There isn't really anything wrong with it other than the fact that it is just a little too small. It feels more miniature and toy like than a good display model should. Once completed it looks nice, but more plasticy and plain than others in the Revell line-up. Extra care is needed on the long thin struts that attach the back of the engine mountings. Make sure you know what you are doing when you detach them from the plastic frame holders so you don't accidentally remove important attachment points. I had to use an exacto knife to cut them off in the right place. And be sure to attach the front nose gun piece the right way up, the curve should be on top. It's hard to tell there is a curve until you put them in upside down and then it is too late. It was slightly more difficult to assemble than some other Revell Star Wars Snaptite models. Painting would probably improve how it looks. It measures about 9" long by 5" wide.

It is a snap kit, but that really is not a big deal for a more serious modeller. It is the same size as the Fine Molds 1/72 y-wing for those who may be looking for a cheaper alternative. Detail wise it is very good for a snap kit and with a bit of super detailing can be made to a Fine Mold level of modelling detail.

For those who like to paint it themselves, the yellow prepaint is not bad, you can mask it off and base the rest of the model in the base color, or strip the paint with 90% alchohol (have to soak for a while)

This is definitely better off with at least some glued parts. Also needs a STAND. Why there is not one is very odd, as it really needs one. Some parts a but tough to assemble.

Very good, easy and fast to assemble. Good detail. Some pieces are delicate, but carefully are very well mounted. Don't include landing gears.
