Anakin's Jedi Starfighter Pocket Kit
« on: Sat Sep, 02, 2017, 10:23:PM »
After working on the Armor for the last several weeks, I decided to go with something quick and easylast weekend.
I basically did an OOB build of the old Revell Pocket Kit of Anakin's Jedi Starfighter from Episode III

Quick look at the parts



Cockpit and Artoo assembled.
Gonna be honest, the only work I've done on this was some trimming of stubs and mispaint on Artoo's head


Fully assembled

Nice!

It's a pretty cool kit. Around 1/55 scale

The Revell Arc-170's are close enough scale wise that you could display them in a flight diorama. I have Obi-Wan's version and keep meaning to pick up Anakin's to have them escorting the Arc-170

The Revell is on the right (the left is a 1/72 Studio Starforge version). I think the Revell one sizes better as the ARC-170 is more like 1/60 or so

Thanks, Mr G.
Was fun to just put something together after the armor work

Had a different show of scale I used with the Obi-wan version
This is with the 1/48 Fine Molds X-wing.

As you can see, the pilots are actually of similar size, as are the R2 units

Cool

I like the alt color scheme for the X-wing

It is indeed close in size to 1/48 as well. That's why I originally picked one up figuring it was "close enough"

These are examples of decent kits from Revell. The only knock I would give it, is the totally flat inner side of the folding wings (fins?) instead of having the mesh like pattern

Thanks. That X-wing was done a long time ago.
