The thing I really like is the droid socket behind the cockpit. A fully assembled astromech droid slides into the socket, instead of just the dome. You remove the butt plate and slide the power generator trench back and out comes the droid. The kit also comes with two droid bodies so you can build both an R2 and R5 series droid. This is great if you choose to build one of the other members of Red Squadron. The only downside is that only decals for R2-D2 are included. Luckily, the detail on the droids is crisp and quite impressive and will lend nicely to hand painting the droids if need be. The S-foils lock together snugly making it easier to display the craft in a landed position if desired, which opens up diorama options. The decals are quite nice and respond well to decal solvents to hug the surface of the model. The only downside is that the squadron markings and colored panels are not weathered like they are on the studio models. Personally, I paint all those anyway but for some less experienced or younger modelers, it could be a little bit of a letdown.
The only thing I dislike about the model is the flight stand. The Death Star base and exhaust port are both brilliant, but the flight stand is clunky and looks out of place. I used it on the first few I built but have since moved on to 3mm clear acrylic rod, which fits perfectly in the plug on the bottom of the model. It lends itself to less of a toy-like appearance and looks a little more "professional."
The bottom line is that this is a wonderful model kit in every way. The price point is also very fair, especially given the detail and engineering of these kits. It also makes it easy to build a small fleet of them to model the entire Red Squadron!
These three kits are amazing -- beautifully molded, exquisitely engineered, flawless in their detail. I have no idea how much access the Bandai moldmakers had to the original studio models, but however they accomplished it, they rendered these three iconic vehicles in jaw dropping detail. These kits are designed to snap-fit together, and they do, solidly and securely, and do so without sacrificing any detail whatsoever. Forget the kits made by MPC and Revell back in the late 70s and 80s -- these are of an order of magnitude better in every respect. In a way, they were worth waiting forty years for: the fanboy in me finally has the Star Wars models he always wanted!
A word of caution -- the assembly instructions are a bit confusing, as they are not really linear in their layout and presentation, so it's well worth taking a few minutes to study then before beginning assembly. A nice touch is that the kits all come with two sets of markings, one a set of self-adhesive stickers, probably meant for younger modelers, and the other a full set of conventional decals, for older -- or at least more experienced -- model builders.
If you've ever considered yourself a Star Wars fan, you owe it to your inner fanboy to get these kits!
I think the most handy thing about Bandai models is that they snap together, but I also think it's necessary to use some Tamiya Extra-Thin Cement. It dries pretty quick and is easy to clean up if it gets somewhere it's not supposed to, so I'd recommend getting that. I'd also recommend just getting a simple 8 piece tool kit for starters. The kit I purchased was by the brand Gundam, and was sold by LENX, for about $10. It's up to you if you want to get a cutting mat for putting everything together, but that's just something I'll get down the road if I ever truly need it. As long as you have a bit of desk space, some simple tools, some cement glue (that works with plastic), and a tv show or music on in the background, you'll be set for a few hours of your day.
Seriously, it's worth the buy.
I would recommend some glue with this model even though the pieces snap together. It will help keep things in place. It's still a very good kit.
All the parts fit perfectly, hardly any plastic left over after cutting from the spruce.
Absolutely stunning detail for such a small model.
It turned out amazing!
