Lepin has released many new and cool model, such as Bugatti, Aston Martin, harry potter etc. Many people are waiting the reviews of them. But so sorry. Today I continue to review star wars series Red Five X-wing Starfighter.
Number of pcs: 1616
Year of release: 2013
The simple looking display stand comes with a specs board and it allows the X-wing to be posed in two different ways. Both ways work just fine with me and I am glad I can have a choice of displaying the X-wing taking off or manoeuvring a bend.
The completed model does feel dense and solid, with exception of the pairs of wings which tend to flop around when moved. This flimsy design is attributed to the rubberised mechanism that holds the wings together. A fully geared mechanism might improve the stability of the wings but could significantly add to the brick count and complexity of the design. In any case, this model is not meant to be swooshable so chances of the flimsy wings being exposed will be slim.
UCS x wing 10240 sets of this proportion are seldom known for loads of playable features. This is no exception, unless you consider the opening cockpit canopy and posable wings are “playable”. The pairs of wings can be separated with the turn of a knob at the rear of the X-wing – clockwise open, anti-clockwise close. Despite my preference to see its more majestic X winged profile, exposed studs on the underside of the wings does make it less attractive to look at. Closing the wings does have its other problem too, when the tip of the forward pointing gun turrets do get into each other’s way.
I realize flighter aircraft is an old model, but still have many fans, as the result, it is het selling in my shop all the time. That is why today I can not wait to refer it.
