1/48 AT-ST English Manual & Color Guide

1/48 AT-ST Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Bandai comes the AT-ST from the Star Wars franchise. This was released as a 1/48 model kit. I always loved this Imperial Walker, as a kid I remembered asking this for Christmas and never getting it. Not that I'm holding this against my parents...Hahaha. I wrote it on a list and placed it in a Christmas stocking, even addressed it to Santa Claus. What I got for Christmas were candies in lieu of the AT-ST, X-Wing and Millennium Falcon. Kinda funny when I think about it now.

The 1/48 AT-ST is selling for $$ at Amazon.
