1/72 Y-Wing Star Fighter English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 Y-Wing Star Fighter Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released by Bandai is the iconic Y-Wing from the Star Wars franchise. I was looking forward to this after I first heard it announced. Suffice to say that I was not disappointed, Bandai did a hell of a job with this. But then again, that it to be expected coming from Bandai, with it's excellent track record of raising the bar every couple of years with new releases.
