The X-wing has been continually updated all through its design lifetime. The original T-65B fielded by the Rebel Alliance was a competent strike fighter for its time, but was soon supplanted by the T-65CA2, boasting enhanced acceleration. The T-65CA3 improved the avionics, shields and sensors the T-65CA4 was mainly an additional engine upgrade, which made it practically the equal of the A-wing in maneuverability.

    Price is descent and glad I bought it for its lite weight and dimensions!

    My youthful son didn’t seem to care much if it was a heavier or more durable version of the X-Wing.

    The lite plastic parts are fairly straight forward for an adult to assemble like 15 minutes with a favorite beverage. :)

    I noticed that the laser cannons on each wing can fall off or break if a child isn’t careful.

    Overall, I’m glad I purchased it and might buy the bigger more heavier and expensive version when my son gets older. Somehow will have to convince my spouse when that time comes.

    Great Model Kit of the classic X-Wing, April 18, 2011

    I didn’t buy my particular model from Amazon, since I got it on sale at Michaels, but I seem to see most people complaining that it’s a model kit. Well, that’s what it is.

    This is a Level 1 kit from Revell, so it requies no glue or paint to complete for the original “stock” look as shown on the box. The box art is actually very accurate; they show it straight-built, with even the nub marks still visible. Once you take it out of the box, like a traditional model it, you must cut the parts out of the “plates” and clean them up. From there it’s simple snap and go. The parts are all pre-painted; Revell was nice enough to add all the red, orange, blue, gray, etc. on the plastic parts for you. It even comes with two little rubber figures of R2-D2 and Luke Skywalker. They are VERY detailed and painted completely, and I must say…the paint they use is GREAT, since it takes a lot of rubbing to make it come off. The Luke Skywalker figure, however, looks rather awkward in the cockpit; he simply looks like he’s lying down more than he’s sitting. Oh, and it also comes with a nice set of landing gear. I suppose it compensates for a lack of a stand, but be warned. The cover for the landing gear in the front is very difficult to remove, evern though they give you a little finger indent. There are no problems with the rear landing gear, though.

    I will note some downsides to it. This is merely a personal preference, but I feel that the X-Wing is lacking in it’s color choices. I went ahead and painted in a lot of the pieces that I didn’t like; the blue cockpit looked too mellow (all of the light baby blue on this model generally looked ugly), so I painted it silver, and changed the “vent” colors to a black and gray. The thrusters and blasters were also painted to add a bit of color seperation. Also, it could really do with some panel lines. Revell has incorperated great detail into this model, with many lines all around the hull that can easily be picked out with some paint or a lining marker.

    As a model kit, it’s actually very durable, but I don’t reccomend playing with it. As a general rule, models are meant more for display than for play. You have action figure toys for that.

    Overall, it’s a simple, nice, and faithful representation of the classic X-Wing fighter from the original Star Wars Trilogy. It only takes a day or two to build, detail, and paint. If you’re looking for a durable, pre-built toy that can take a serious thrashing, though, I’d say look for an actual toy instead of a model.
