Medium: Styrene
Parts: 22
Status: Discontinued
Release Date: 1983
Skill Level: Beginner
This kit has been reissued several times since the initial release in 1983, the most recent release being around 1996. The kit has a total of 22 parts molded in light gray styrene, and includes a decal sheet.

Assembly was straight-forward and there were few fit problems, which is unusual considering that this is an AMT/Ertl kit. Parts were cleanly molded, with little or no flash, and ejector pin marks were minimal.

The kit was assembled, primed, and then airbrushed using a mixture of acrylics and enamels. The design on the ship is based on a pattern released on one of the Hasbro Titanium Series A-Wings in 2004. Damage was represented through dry-brushing with Model Master Chrome Silver enamel and airbrushing with Tamiya Flat Black acrylic.

The completed kit is about 6 inches long and 4 inches wide.
