https://youtu.be/JlUSRCnYOsE

Available in the USA here: https://www.model-space....-wars-x-wing-model.html

X-wing Model Specifications

Scale: 1:18
X-wing era - A New Hope (Battle of Yavin)
The X-Wing model replicates the X-wing that was assigned to Luke Skywalker to fly as a member of Red Squadron under the call sign 'Red Five'
29.3 inches long, 7.4 inches high, 25.7 inch wingspan
Weight: Approx. 8.8lbs

Official Disney Lucasfilm licensed product.

X-Wing Model Features

Laser Cannons: Each of the highly detailed cannons includes a model of the internal laser generator, plus an LED and fibre optic that lights up to mimic ‘firing’.

Removable Hyperdrive Section: The top section of the rear fuselage behind the droid socket lifts off to reveal a fully detailed hyperdrive unit, which is removable for inspection.

Proton Torpedo Bay: The lower panel in the fuselage is detachable, allowing the rack containing the proton torpedoes to be removed or reloaded.

Authentic Finish & Markings: Your X-wing comes pre-painted with markings based on Industrial Light & Magic’s models that were used to film the special effects shots in the first Star Wars movie.

Fusial-Thrust Engines: The outlet nozzles on the X-wing’s four S-foils light up to simulate the powerful thrust from its four sublight engines.

Sublight Engines: Each of the four engine cases have fully detailed internal workings that you assemble and install as you put the model together.

Movable S-Foils: The four S-foils are motorized, and open via remote control.

Cockpit: The canopy opens to reveal a superbly detailed interior with illuminated instrumentation, including the targeting computer.

Light-up R2-D2 unit: Your X-wing model comes complete with a scale replica of R2-D2. When inserted into the X-wing’s droid socket, R2’s head can turn and his sensors light up via remote control.

Landing Gear & Mounting Point: Your X-wing features landing gear that can be fitted to display your model on a shelf or table. You can also remove the landing gear and attach a mounting bracket to display the X-wing in flight mode. (A wall mount bracket will be made available to purchase via the ModelSpace online shop).

Made of Metal and ABS plastic., Each issue contains fascinating Star Wars facts and insights, along with an assembly guide with clear, step-by-step instructions, accompanied by detailed photos, to make building your X-wing as easy as possible.

This is a must-have model for any Star Wars collector or X-wing fan!

I'm so waiting for this to hit Australian shores. I know it's going to be a while and Australia will need a new distributor after Bissett ceased business but by the time it does hit I'll be ready

It’s just lighting effects - laser cannons, instrument panels and engines.
