With subject matter as familiar to Sci-Fi fans as the Star Wars series, Bandai recognised the need to produce a model kit line-up that both faithfully captured the detail and dimensions of the movie props, yet avoided the traditionally lengthy and laborious assembly procedures typical of highly detailed plastic model kits of the past.
Designed to be assembled with nothing more than a pair of plastic nippers, the Bandai Star Wars Plastic Model series suits all levels of modelling experience from raw recruits to seasoned veterans. Featuring parts moulded in colour, excellent fit and a glueless snap-together assembly method, anyone can put together an eye-catching model which is a joy to assemble and a pleasure to display. For those wishing to take their model to the next level, these finely detailed kits will reward careful painting and subtle weathering, however the pre-coloured plastic parts ensure painting is not required to achieve a great looking model.
Precision detail - Bandai researched a wide range of materials and collaborated with Japan's foremost Star Wars historian, Seiji Takahashi, to re-examine each film prop to achieve the most realistic detail in each scale.
Colour reproduction - Colours are varied from part to part to achieve the rich texture seen in the films. Bandai harnessed their full array of plastic model technologies, such as the Iro-Pla multi-colour injection moulding, glossy injection moulding, and the use of multi-layer colour inserts. Both water-transfer decals and translucent stickers are included to let you replicate all of the markings and colourations.
Movie realism - The appearance of the vehicles differ from episode to episode, and the details of similar vehicles often differ as well. Bandai's plastic models were created based on thorough research of specific props to replicate their form and details with the utmost accuracy.
Efficient assembly - No glue is needed. Just a single pair of nippers is all you need to re-create the vehicles right on your tabletop. Bandai's precise model making technologies make assembling kits a snap!
