Out of the 3 we got (R2D2 and Millenium Falcon) this by far was the worst to put together. The instructions need rewriting as there are parts you need to add before doing up other parts (ie add the sides before doing up the central body) otherwise impossible to do. Also this was the only one where multiple parts (mainly tags) snappedeaning I have had to glue a couple of the bits. All in all they look great and while fiddly to put together they are good fun and my son certainly loves the finished product.
This is a lovely looking model. Not one of the more robust models in the series but it's not as challenging as some of the others. Great detail as in all the star-wars series this is my sixth model in the series and well worth the effort. Again great service and fast delivery from IWOOT
Bought as a gift but really looks the part,delivery service brilliant
Was a lot smaller than I thought and I can't comment on how well it looks when finished as it is a present - but great idea
Good Quality, and a definite sense of achievement when finished, only thing is that it is quite small so very fiddly.
Somewhat fiddly but very rewarding. My advice - really look at the instructions! Don't do up the middle bit until everything's attached or you'll never be able to fix it. I have some jewellers pliers which were really helpful as they are small and precise. Tweezers are handy too. All in all this was great fun to make, both challenging and satisfying and now I can zoom it around the room making sound effect noises and relive the films!
Tiny but really detailed and looks cool!
I got this as a gift for my fiancé and he loves it. Took us over an hour to make it just because it's a little fiddly but it look gorgeous when done.
Bought these for a friends birthday who's a Star Wars fanatic. He absolutely loved them. Well made from real metal & smart laser etched detailing on the panels. Call it a 2015 Airfix kit. Recommended for all Star Wars aficionados. Five stars :)
Bought this for my husbsnd for our 10th Wedding anniversary, which is on May the 4th Star Wars day, he loves modelling so I thought this would be very apt. He had actually been looking ar them himself, so was really pleased
These are impossible to put together properly I did eventually finish construction but the pieces keep coming apart as the little tabs keep pulling out. i even tried soldering them together to no avail
These models are very delicate, being made of thin sheets of metal. A few times I have snapped a tab by tightening too much. You should also look carefully at the instructions, and make sure everything is the right way round. A mistake could spoil the model, and bending the wrong way could cause the model to break along the fold line. This happened to me but I was able to make a repair with super glue. The join is not noticeable. So, take care and you'll have a beautiful model spaceship.
Got this as a birthday present for someone. The pieces come in two laser cut sheets and popping them out can be a bit tricky as they're so small and have sharp edges. The material is also too delicate and snaps easily - it's basically like thick aluminium foil. It's difficult to attach the pieces together as the tabs are extremely tiny and almost impossible to assemble without some precision tools. You need to be very patient and have a gentle touch for this kit. It's a shame because the pieces are nicely detailed and the finished model, although small, would look cool whether you're a Star Wars fan or not.
Excellent models to add to my collection.
Straight forward and fun to assemble, just take your time. Looks great once completed and on display!
If you have a steady hand and lots of patience this is a novel way to prevent boredom and the metal is ideal for this star wars model. It has parts that are extremely small but that is its appeal and why this model will take some time to complete. Be prepared with the right tools to handle such small pieces and take your time and I am sure you will be pleased with the result.
Awesome item...A bit fiddly to build but worth it in the end. shame that it took over 2 weeks to be delivered. ..poor show
Bought as a present. My brother was quite please with the 3 little models. It looks it may require some time and patience to assemble!
