This is an injection-plastic kit of a science-fiction/anime item.
Fine Molds adds to its 1/48-scale Star Wars lineup with this fantastic release of the TIE Fighter! As with all of the Fine Molds Star Wars kits, this model was created with data provided by Lucasfilm for the utmost in accuracy. And like the 1/72-scale version, the solar panel "spokes" are molded as separate parts, meaning you don't have to do any tricky masking when painting...not only that, the solar panels themselves are molded in black, so you don't have to paint them at all! The canopy is also provided as a frame that you can use either with or without the clear part installed. The upper hatch can also be assembled without the clear part. Includes seated pilot and standing Imperial Officer figures (one each) and a display stand. Includes one TIE Fighter per box (Star Destroyer not included!). Another great 1/48-scale Star Wars release from Fine Molds!
