1/72 Tie Fighter English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai 1/72 Tie Fighter

Released by Bandai in 1/72 scale was the Tie Fighter from the Star Wars franchise. Boy do I remember having a grand of a time driving people nuts by mimicking the sound that the Tie Fighter made whenever I was in Star Wars play mode as a young kid. Something about that sound that just made you think "villain" whenever you heard it.

The 1/72 Tie Fighter from Bandai is selling for $$ at Amazon.

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