This is the most important rebel alliance fighter and one of the most powerful single-seat space ships ever produced. Fully painted snap Model Kits Quickly assembled No gluing required Multicolour printed Illustrated assembly instructions Movable wings Laser cannons Movable cockpit cover Includes 2 figures 1:57 Scale
This is the most important rebel alliance fighter and one of the most powerful single-seat space ships ever produced. The T-65 X-wing Fighter owes its name to the double wings one above the other that form an X in combat in order to increase the firing range of the pilot. In addition to four high-energy laser cannon the X-wing Fighter has proton torpedoes, deflector shields, hyper drive and a navigation droid. Luke Skywalker prefers this type of fighter. It was used by the young Jedi to destroy the first Death Star in the Battle of Yavin. The X-wing Fighter quickly proved to be one of the most effective military aircraft in the galaxy. The unusual wing design of the T-65 is frequently regarded as the success formula of the space ship. The pair of twin wings remains closed during normal flights under the speed of light. In combat and on entry into the atmosphere of a planet, they can be extended. On the wing tips are high-energy laser cannon that can be fired singly, simultaneously, in pairs or in other combinations.

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.
This X-Wing may be easy to build, but it looks superb.
It's not up to the standard of Finemolds in detail but it's acceptable, and many times better than older snap fix X-Wing kits of the past that had accuracy issues regarding the blaster cannons, so it's a little of a compromise between a great kit and an awful kit.
The scale of the kit is pleasing, and the level of external detail is good. The kit goes together quite well, but if your a competent model builder do as I do, sand down the locating pins and get the old glue out for extra adhesion. The paint scheme and colouring on the ship could have been better than simply adding the markings and weathering on the bare unpainted plastic of the kit. A base coat would have improved the whole look tenfold. The markings are, on the whole, very good, and do not miss out the curling blue stripe seen on the barrel of the blaster cannon that a few other kits seem to miss off.
It is not a toy as it's like most model kits, very delicate and prone to damage. So when it's built up put it somewhere safe and leave it on display for all to see.
Easyish to construct (one part didn't fit properly) and seems quite robust. A shame the Tie Fighter is so much bigger and more expensive!
