For the purists, of course, there is the astonishing Fine Molds kit that just came out in Japan. But it's a glue kit wich requires some modeling skills.
For the others, Revell of Germany will launch in september four new pre-painted easy to assemble snap-kits. They will be roughly 1:72 scale. There will be the Y-wing, the Boba Fett's Slave one, a Snowspeeder and a pretty well made AT-AT. Here are the pics. The good news is : they are pretty cheap here 12 to 25 for the bigger models and they will probably become available soon in the US (since AMT SW line is dead). No news yet on the mini snaps or on the fourth kit (a 24" SSD Executor is rumored to be in the pipe).

NOTE : These are prototypes, the paintjob is just roughly applied to show what it should look like.

Those look tremendous! I wish they'd release these here in the US.

These look great. I'll be able to build a fleet of Y-Wings, my favourite fighter.
It will be interesting to see how these compare with the Finemolds 1/72nd scale kit.


Maybe a V-Wing next year Revell?

All the best,
Yorkie.

The AT-AT looks really cool! :thumbsup: But I'm talentless at assembling models like these...

sicqnus,

Thank you so much for posting the pics. They all look terrific. I hope these kits make it to the states this time around.

sergiurusu,

These Revell kits are pre-painted snap-tite type of kits, no glue or painting necessary.

Then I might think of the AT-AT... What prices are these? Are they sturdy?

What about older Revell SW ships , were they sturdy enough?
