I have most of the Bandai Star Wars kits and all are excellent. I did the Speeder Bike with rider 3 or so years back and have won a couple of awards with it as well as getting a picture in FSM. The kit is typical Bandai excellence and fits together similarly to Legos. You don't even have to paint them if you don't want as they are molded in colors. However I build them and paint them the traditional way. And on the figures I epoxy the articulated joints to be solid and continuing the clothing lines. This kit does a great job of capturing the subject and is highly detailed. I recommend it like all the Bandai kits to Star Wars model builders.
Another superb model by Bandai. The engineering of kits is always amazing. This kit is far better than the original kit from the 80s, while of course that's a nice one to have as well. Detail is amazing as well.
