That's awesome man- and there's a lot of SW snap tight models for him to really get into it.
Then it's onto glue kits and you can guide him through the most difficult struggle every young man goes through:
Waterslide Decals.

Awesome

So when is his first weathering session going to be :) ?

p.s. I believe the Revell Easy Pocket Kit Tie Fighter is (not to be confused with the larger regular Easy Kit version) is pretty close in scale with the Revell X-wing. IIRC the X-wing comes in somewhere around 1/57 to 1/65. The pocket kit despite being listed as 1/110 or something on Revell's website is actually larger than the Fine molds 1/72 one and is pretty close to 1/65.



he could snap that together and have duels!!
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

We just finished the Revell Jedi Fighter. He's gotten into the clone wars animated show. Next he really wants to do a Falcon, which may be a Christmas present. I'd get him the TIE, but he isn't to interested in "bad guy" ships right now.

Nicely done. I hope the laser cannons on that model were not as annoying to put together as the ones on the original MPC kit back in the day

That is totally awesome!

I have a 5 year old and she has started to show interest in Star Wars (unlike my wife!). She likes the models I build and I've asked her a few times if she wants to build an X-wing and she hasn't given me a straight answer yet (like a typical 5 year old).

If it doesn't stick with her, I'll get another chance with my soon to be 3 year old girl.
