Product Description

Product Description

Darth Vader used this prototype as the basis for the terrifyingly effective TIE interceptor in the Battle of Yavin. Unlike all other TIE fighters this prototype has a deflector shield generator and a simple hyperdrive. Vader's TIE Advanced is armed with heavy twin blaster cannon on fixed mounts but has no life support systems. The TIE Advanced is characterised by a hull made of duralloy steel, an extended after deck and unique solar cell wings. The Tie Advanced quickly became one of Darth Vader's favourite ships. Like all the TIE ships the prototype has a drive system consisting of twin ion engines. Its solar ionization reactor is reputed to be much more powerful than that of the standard TIE fighters. The TIE Advanced has proved itself in battle, as it is capable of withstanding many direct hits. In addition the pilots' chances of survival were considerably enhanced by the incorporation of a hyperdrive system, which enables the ship to escape from hopeless battle situations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Junk 7 Jun 2014

Was a pig to clip together. Some of the poor mouldings meant that the wings never fitted properly and always came off at the lightest touch. Very poor value for money.

Good little model for the money, simple enough to assemble, did require gluing and some tiding up of parts prior to assembling.

4.0 out of 5 stars The force is strong in this one... 17 Sep 2011
By Crookedmouth HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Revell's Easykit Pocket kit is an excellent introduction to the world of modelling. The kit takes a popular and contemporary subject (none of your dusty, boring Spitfires or Messerschmidts here) and uses it to encourage wannabe kit bashers to practise the basic modelling skills: separating parts from the sprues, cleaning up the sprue stubs and paying attention to the (commendably clear and simple) instructions. Executed in the economical scale of 1/72, the kit is designed to be almost impossible to get wrong: the few "handed" components are designed so that they can only be fitted on the correct side of the model and there is no need for paint or glue (although I fixed the parts with superglue to ensure a robust finish). All in all this particular kit took me about 30m to build - it could be finished in rather less if you wanted though.

The quality is surprisingly good for what is essentially a cheap(ish) toy. The parts are moulded with plenty of detail and they fit together snugly with only the merest hint of a seam. The paint job is sparse but nicely done: the pilot figure, for instance, is painted with matt black overalls and gloss black boots and helmet which I thought was rather nice attention to detail, especially as the pilot will be all but invisible in the end! Equally impressive is the pilot's port hole, the framework of which is also painted.

Other reviewers have mentioned that this kit could do with a display stand. I suppose it could, but I'm going to be hanging mine from the study ceiling where it will dogfight with an English Electric Lightning and a Tupolev Tu16 Badger. Who will triumph, I wonder? The forces of darkness, I suspect...

The kit *is* quite fiddly so it's probably best suited for ages of around 10 years and upwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars great details, easy assembly 2 July 2010
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was very positively surprised by the details of Revell's Easy Kit collection, both in colour and texture. I bought some "paint not required" model kits before where the colours turned up to be defined by the colour of the plastic, so no details were highlighted in colour. But in this kit several details (of course not as many as if you painted it yourself) are ACTUALLY PAINTED. Very detailed interior includes a black painted Darth Vader figurine, looking just like in the movie. It holds together very well without any glue, and it could even survive a few minutes in a child's hands, even though it's not really sturdy enough to be used as a toy.
A small shortcoming, though: no display stand.

Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a very easy kit to put together and the instructions are simple to follow. To get the best out of the kit I'd advise getting a set of modelling pliers, glue and a file for plastic models.

Inside the box you'll find the pieces fixed to two plastic sheets and a separate bag for the clear plastic windows. Basic assembly took 15 minutes but I was a little unhappy with the plastic flash left on some of the pieces and the fit of the wings and body were a little loose. The pliers, glue and file sorted out these little problems.

Overall the quality of the product is very high and resembles something that GamesWorkshop would be proud of. The Revell easy-fit collection is one I will be proudly displaying.
