Millennium Falcon, X-Wings, Tie Fighter and Shuttle

Ever since the Star Wars films were introduced Revell models has been there producing exact miniature duplicates of many of the ships and vehicles seen in the films
.
They've always been a big hit with fans and with the premiere of the new Star Wars film: The Force Awakens, Revell has once again outdone itself when it comes to capturing, in miniature, key spacecraft from the film and translating them into plastic model kits.

Revell makes it easy for the young modeler to create thier very own Star Wars vehicles.  Revell has taken the muss and fuss away out of model-making with its SnapTite MAX Star Wars
models.

No glue, no paint, no decals-each model is pre-painted and decaled, snaps together in (well-a snap!) and are ready to display in no time at all.

Each model comes in a full color box complete with a full-color illustration/painting on its cover of whatever vehicle is inside.  Easy-to-understand instructions are also included.

Each model captures perfectly the look and details of each ship right down to the hull lines, surface sensors and equipment, painted and decaled surfaces and more.

Models include ships from The Force Awakens.

After too long an absence the Millennium Falcon returns (a little worse for wear) but just as impressive.  Every surface detail is present from the loading bay, pilot cockpit, sensor and shield emitters, weapons and landing gear. It's a beauty that Han Solo would be proud of.

There are two X-Wings: a Resistance X-Wing Fighter and Poe's characteristic silver and  yellow X-Wing Fighter.  Both are updated versions of the famous fighter with extra engine enhancements and weapons.  Either way, they make for formidable foes against The New Order.

The First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter is even more menacing looking than the original Tie Fighter. Accented in red, the new Tie-Fighter is more maneuverable, deadlier and wickedly cool.  Check out its weapons, cockpit and redesigned wing panels.

Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle reminds me of the Emperor's Shuttle in Return Of The Jedi. 
Kylo Ren's Shuttle has longer wings that extend or retract and fold when in flight or landing.

Equipped with four laser banks, the heavily armored Shuttle is both intimidating and impressive.

All of Revell's Star Wars models look great once assembled and when displayed make perfect dioramas of scenes for the new movie.
