About the Design
The Trade Federation Droid Fighters were the precursors to the famous Imperial TIE fighters, and shared their basic H-shaped structure. Small and only lightly armed, the fighters were launched in swarms intended to overwhelm enemies by their sheer numbers.
About the Kit
This was a disappointing kit. The three little droid fighters were literally a "snap" to construct, and painting was a no-brainer. There was more plastic in the stand than there was in the three vehicles. This modeler would have preferred a single but larger and more detailed model to this undersized troika.
This model was built from an original issue.
