Very cool! The Bandai kits are really good quality. Pick up the A-Wing if you want another one after this.

That sounds like a great idea!  Thank you Gamera for the read and reply.

You guys got a Bandai kit!!!  Awesome!!!!  You won't regret it!  They are really nice kits and I think both you and Ezra will find them very enjoyable!  Can't wait to see this one....I don't have this one and was thinking about it when I saw it at the last model show.  Thanks for sharing your builds with us.  Very enjoyable!

Yes, my son purchased the kit for us at Hobby Lobby.  It’s our pleasure to share WIP with everyone.  I just hope we can do justice to this wonderful kit.

This will be a OOB build, stickers and all.  It is very fun and exciting to be building with Ezra.  He’s at the stage of why, why, and why!  Lol!

I’ve never made 1/144, as they say; “There’s always got to be a first time”!

Hi Tosh and Ezra,

   These little kits from Bandai are a great way to get the little one into the hobby. Hobby lobby has a good selection, at least mine does, and the coupon helps. If you want to step up your game the 1/72 kits are also great kits. I have enjoyed your plane wip, glad to see you moving into scifi.

Yes, they (Bandai) have some intense detailing.  I think he did very well with the weathering of the “Millennium Falcon” and he keeps asking me to help him with certain aspects of a build.   Other than that his famous words are; “I got it”!  Lol!  Thank you for following along on our builds.

I've got a few of these back when Revel had them in almost every toy isle in Washington. Prepainted and snap construction, but nicely detailed. 

They only offered Red 5, but they were easy to modify and I made up my own bits of Rogue Squadron based loosely on the books.

Just a tip Toshi, they take a wash rather well even if you don't paint them. ;)

Just for reference, modifications are easy to make. I've got Red 3, 4, 5, and 6 represented here. Still need to make up 1 and 2. This, as mentioned above, are my interpretations based on the books and my imagination.

I'm looking forward to seeing how much more Ezra has accomplished recently. ;)

Thank you for the references in the different leaders in each squadron.  I appolagize for such a late repose as Ezra is in Columbus, Ohio with mom.  He will be back next weekend for a week.  Two weeks in Columbus, one week in Cleveland with us.  During this time, we will either be finishing up the X-Wing fighter or starting the Y-Wing fighter.  Thank you sir for always being a great inspiration.

Still waiting on Ezra to arrive.  This Saturday the 27th.  I did do the markings, waiting on a wash and a flat coat sealer.
