X-Wing Maxi

NCR Model #3540

Description

This kit is a maxi of the the star wars X-wing fighter with flies on an F or G motor. This is a heavy model that requires the larger parachute supplied with the kit so if the recovery system fails it will cause damage to the model. This kit requires careful construction but is worth the build when finished. Have fun building this futuristic exotic kit.
