This is my second Star War kit from Revell. The first--the V19 Torrent Starfighter--lost marks due to a lousy 'weathered' paint scheme, the model I imagine looking far nicer without it. The X-Wing is better in every way.
The pieces are easy to snap off from the mould sprues. They are very nicely coloured, although detail lacking in some minor areas such as the X-Wing's cockpit, just behind the intersection of the canopy and the nose, which in the Star Wars movies is covered in black and silver machine parts--the toy is a plain grey, no detailing. The rubber figurines of Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot gear) and R2D2 are excellent, particularly the latter which can be removed from its slot behind the canopy.
The X-Wing model has several 'action features': a hinged cockpit canopy, 'x-wing' deployment, hinged underside slots for removable landing gear (two below the thrusters, one non-hinged towards the nose cone that can be replaced with a grey panel to hide the hole). The finished model looks more like a toy than a model, which is intended as a complement to Revell. However, the usual caution applies: don't literally treat it as a toy, as it was not intended for such activity.
