from "Star Wars - Episode 1: The Phantom Menace" (1999)
About the Design
The Sith Infiltrator is a largel, one-man fighter-style craft used by followers of The Dark Side to surreptitiously enter and move about planetary systems. Its spherical cockpit and folded wings clearly portend the TIE Fighters that would just a decade later become the primary fighting vehicles of the Evil Empire.
About the Kit
In one of its last gasps with its 20-plus-year-old "Star Wars" license, AMT/Ertl issues four mini-"snap" models of otherwise unkitted "Phantom Menace" designs. The models measured only about two inches long and came "pre-decorated," an obvious bow to late 20th Century kids who couldn't be bothered with paint and glue.
This Sith Infiltrator, built from an original issue, was enhanced with additional detailing and weathering.
