I have enjoyed adding some of Bandai's new releases to my 1/72 scale Star Wars collection. As I have all of the 1/72 scale kits released by Fine Molds, I stay away from duplicates. Here is the TIE Striker from "Star Wars; Rogue One". The kit went together with no hitches although I always paint the models regardless of the molded colors.

Very neat job Chuck!

They really are superb kits, and excellent mojo restorers if needed! I'm looking forward to the 1/72 Falcon :grin:

Thanks. I, on the other hand, will be taking a pass on the Bandai Falcon kit. I built the Fine Molds kit when it first came out and added fiber optics and LEDs. Lets just say if I lose power, I can use the Falcon's head lights as flash lights. They are that powerful ! :)

That is excellent, Chuck, very nicely done indeed. Painted always looks better than naked plastic IMHO.

Probably harder to carry to the fuse box than a torch though. :lol: :ha:

Hey, I have all of my 1/72 scale Bandai and Fine Molds Star Wars kits arranged over the computer. I know where the Falcon is at all times. I don't always remember where I put the flash light. :)
