Star Wars is possibly the biggest sci-fi epic ever. Having far reaching appeal and in every medium. Animated, TV, feature film, comics, novels, art, audio, toys and miniatures.
Bandai do snap kits and are famous for their Gundams. When they got the Star Wars licence there was a lot of complaining from the model kit community who liked Fine Molds even though Fine Molds was very slow on releases and had said they were not going to release all the ships. They were very wrong.
The Bandai ships are some of the best kits you can find. Great detail and fun. If you shop around they are affordable as well.
This is their 1/72 Y-Wing.
