REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Snap kit


The Razor Crest was an ST-70 class Razor Crest M-111 Assault Ship used by the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin. Prior to the rise of the Galactic Empire, it served as a military patrol craft. The vessel eventually fell into the hands of Din Djarin, who lived and worked from it as he hunted bounties in the Outer Rim Territories in the early years of the New Republic. He used it throughout the search for the child named Grogu, and continued to use it on the quest to find Grogu's species in 9 ABY. The Razor Crest was destroyed by a single shot fired by Gideon's light cruiser during a skirmish on Tython.


This is one of Bandai's many Star Wars ship kits. Like many of Bandai's kits, this one is a snap kit, not requiring glue to complete. This makes them favorites of youngsters and helps get them into building models. They also make a nice break for more experienced modelers who have been working on the more fussy modern model kits.

There are two fairly small silver-grey sprues and a black sprue that contains the display stand. Surface detailing is excellent and while the engraved lines may be a bit much for this scale, few will complain.

The nine construction steps are printed on the inside of the box top with painting instructions on the inside of one of the box sides. Basically they tell you to paint the ship silver or black. Many won't paint it at all. There are no clear parts with the cabin windows being represented by stickers. In fact, all the markings as such are stickers. There is a tiny placement guide on one of the exterior box top sides. The kit would benefit from some creative detail painting and perhaps a wash as well.  


This is a kit to build is one wants to relax and do something that doesn't tax one very much. No obsessing over the right color or whether the markings are accurate. It is a kit that you can build with your small children if you have any.
