Good day, Geeks.

I just bought a set of these Fine Molds 1/72 Star Wars ships. I've never built a Fine Molds kit before and have no idea what to expect. I was going to pick up one of the Bandai 1/48 kits, but the 1/72 is more my speed, and will fit in my daughter's room better.

A couple of questions for you pros, then: I got both kits for $65 shipped. Is this a good deal, or did I get robbed? And second: Are they good kits? I'm looking at building them both worn and weary, and will be posed in a dogfight suspended on fishing line from her ceiling in her bedroom.

I appreciate the knowledge, and I'll share the results when I get them done!

I haven't built the Fine Molds kits but my understanding was they were the best available. I have built the Bandai in that scale and they are great. The price you paid is pretty good as the Fine Molds kits can be pricey. When they arrive, show us what you got in the box.

They're exceptional kits, no fit issues with clear and concise instructions (I've built the Tie fighter and interceptor)
