This kit is identical to the Blue Squadron X-Wing, which makes it easier to put together! The only difference is the color scheme... A good hobby knife is important for trimming the sprue prior to assembly. The tip is also good for pealing and placing your decals. A cotton swab is perfect for dabbing your decals to remove air bubbles and contour to the details. Look for the golden rectangle near the corner of the box to use as a label on your display stand.
