This is the original issue of the kit, dated 1978
This was one of the first Star Wars kits produced by MPC back in 1978. Many think this is the best kit ever done. About 1:35 scale [or so].
Please note, this is a vintage kit and no longer in production. Boxes may be have shelf ware or distortion due to age and shrinkwrap. Decals may be unusable. Replacements are simply not available. Although it is factory sealed and believed to be complete, it is sold "as is" and cannot be returned.
