I'm sorry - I forgot that there is more than one version. I have the MPC kit. This was the original from 1984 or so.

Yes. I got this as a Christmas present - 1984 or so. I could be wrong but I've had this for so long. Now I need to strip the paint from it and the firewall and redo all these parts. I have to be gentle but in the mean time I have other cars that also need some attention. I have to keep going to get them finished. It's just trying to get everything done at once that makes it harder to stay on task!

Alright counting time this go around. 5/19/22 @0855 EST I've put the super clean in with some parts painted with acrylics by Tamiya airbrused on and GameWorkshops detailed by brush.

(The other day I knocked my X-Wing off the shelf and broke it, t'was a gift and was pressed in the late 70's... so it was warped beyond actually fitting together on more than one side anyways... probably lent to the breaking... anyways I've got boosters to repurpose now!)

Just under an hour and a half the hand painted pieces are clean, the airbrushed pieces are starting to come clean. They're probably scrubable, but I'm not ready to prep or paint them, so we'll let them soak!
