This is one of the more recent Star Wars releases from Bandai, in their 'palm-sized' scale; there are a number of kits in this range, covering most of the well known Star Wars vehicles.
The box is well made, and comprises a glossy lid in black with CGI styled graphics of the subject on the lid top, and various information around the edges (mostly it has to be said in Japanese). The kit is apparently in 1/144 scale, although there is no mention of this on the box that I can find (or understand, not reading Japanese all that well :grin: )
The contents are contained in one sealed plastic bag and consist of four light grey sprues and one black, together with one small sheet of stickers.

Anyone familiar with the scaled range of Star Wars products from Bandai will know just how well moulded and detailed their kits are; this kit, small as it is proves to be no exception. The pipework, cabling and ducting on the engine parts of the Y-Wing are very sharp and well defined, and look like they will take washes and highlighting exceptionally well.
The instructions are printed on the inside of the box lid, presumably to save space, weight and cost alike; the print is small and it may be worth photographing to allow enlarged printing for ease of reference. There are ten main stages from start to finish, and it looks to be a straight forward build.

Detail as you say looks great. Something to scale the photos against though would be helpful.

Better to fettle than to fill
