Earth Alliance Thunderbolt Starfury Fighter
from "Babylon 5" (1994-1998)
About the Design
The replacement for the original one-man "Starfury," the Thunderbolt eschewed its predecessor's distinctive "stand-up" cockpit in favor of a more traditional linear two-man seated cockpit design. The "Advanced 2-Man Fighter-Bomber" also sported a distinctive nose-mounted laser-cannon that made it a formidable foe in both atmospheric and deep-space dogfights.

Sculpted by Alfred Wong, cast by Mana Studios and featuring an extensive decal treatment by JBOT, this 1:144 model was the first of Fantastic Plastic's 1:144 B5 fighter kits. Available only through private sale, the kit featured a variety of nose art options.
