1/48 Snow Speeder English Manual & Color Guide

1/48 Snow Speeder Construction Manual & Color Guide

Oh boy, was excited to see this released, the Snow Speeder from the Empire Strikes Back. It was released by Bandai as a 1/48 model kit. Definitely one of my most favorite designs to come out of the Starwars Universe.

When I was a kid, Atari released a video game where in you flew a Snow Speeder and you had to shoot AT-AT's. If I remember correctly, as the game progressed the AT-AT's came a bit faster and there in lay the challenge of the game. Often times there would be a glowing block on the AT-AT and if you shot this part the AT-AT would explode suddenly, making it easier for you to kill the next one. Yep, a lot of good memories were had playing that game.

The 1/48 Snow Speeder from Bandai is selling for $$ at Amazon.
