This was my very first Star Wars model ever. I bought this at Toys 'R Us and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. It was originally the Flight Display version with the large, clear plastic disc that was supposed to make it look like it was flying. I had it mounted in this until recently when I removed it because it took up too much space. I used a stand from some other model I had lying around. Now it looks like the original issue that came with just the regular plastic stand. I don't remember too much about construction. As you can see, the Scout Trooper didn't fit very well so you will need to do a lot of cleanup work around the seams. The rest of the bike was really well done with not too many problem areas. As you can see, the form is pretty darn good and looks very accurate. No complaints here about that. One slight problem I had was getting the Scout Trooper attached to the bike properly. Much like the Battle Droid and his STAP, it will take some work. Painting, believe it or not was done entirely by hand with a brush. This was before I had the knowledge or funds for anything better like spray cans or an airbrush. The color itself is wrong. It's a sort of Dark Gull Gray when it should actually be more rusty brown. I think I painted it this way because the instructions told me to. I honestly can not remember just why I did it. I hope to eventually redo it someday. A few years later after I had an airbrush, I went back and made a few little blast marks to spice it up. Not much, but it's something. Overall, this is a kit with a lot of cool potential, just make sure you don't make the same mistakes I did and clean your seams and use the right colors. Like I said, I got this kit at Toys 'R Us for about $14 I think. You can probably find it much cheaper online somewhere.
