The latest in the Star Wars universe is the upcoming movie: Rogue One. The first spin off movie. One of the more interesting ships in Rogue One is the U-Wing transport. The U-Wing kit is available from Revell. At 1/101st scale, it’s still a nice size model kit. This particular kit falls in the Build and Play line of models. The intention is to build and, most likely, play with it until its destruction. I’m not a big fan of the this line, but since it’s the only available U-Wing and decided to jump in with both feet.
This is a very east kit. I basically built it out of the box. The only changes I made was mostly paint colors. I painted the cockpit and aft engine sections which I painted gunmetal. I did weather the model to give it that Rebellion worn and tired look. I applied a gray wash to the entire model. Once dry, I wiped off the excess and dull coated the kit to seal the wash.
Overall, I recommend this kit. Well, I recommend it until Bandai releases their rendition of the U-Wing. For a beginner getting into sci-fi modeling this is a good kit.
