1/72 Tie Advanced x1 English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 Tie Fighter Advanced x1

Released by Bandai was Darth Vader's Tie Advanced x1 fighter from the Star Wars franchise as a 1/72 scale model kit. Yeah I remember countless times during my childhood mimicking the sound this fighter made, not caring that it made me look like a fool to the uninitiated. Like Cypher said in the Matrix; "Ignorance is Bliss."

The 1/72 Tie Advanced x1 is selling for $$ at Amazon

Construction Manual & Color Guide for the 1/72 Tie Advanced x1 was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla & Model Kit Review site.
