    Sorry I did not make picutures of the build.
    Best Tip I can give (for all models) - before closing parts check whether other parts have to be added to this part. If possible add them before closing the
    big part although the instruction says to close it first.
    Beside the guns I do not remember any hints. Round parts (like cockpit) are always a challange.
    Good luck and have fun.

    Was an rather easy model - recommended for beginners.

    I have this kit (as well as a few others). I have not put it together yet. I will be using this thread as a guide when I start them.

    Just follow the instruction - then the model will come together nicely.
    You always have an engraved side and one which is not. If it is not clear from the description - just check what should be visible - this is the engraved side.
    Check whether parts have to be inserted on other parts before closing them. The description sometimes closes the part and then you have the problem that it is very hard to fix the additional parts.
    Good luck for your Metal Earth projects.

    Enclosed the latest puzzle finished. X-wing from episode 7.
    It is a rather easy model to build. Just look closely to the instuction to avoid mistakes regarding engraphed and non engraphed side.
    And a photo of all star wars models done til now.
