Gone but not forgotten.
Who out there has the old double kit of the AMT Tie Fighter kit? This came with a Death Star base for the Ties. I know this may not be the most accurate base, just wondering how big it was. If you have pics I would like to see them. I can't seem to find any old threads on this kit here that actually shows the base. Thanks.:)
 
It measures 8 1/2" x 11 1/2"

You can have my two unused ones if you want. S&H and they're yours.

FWIW I'm going to take this opportunity to say that the AMT Ties are NOT bad! Yeah! Yeah! They're not accurate and so-on-and-so-forth. So what. For $2.99 a kit at Toy Liquidators they build up quite nice and I've got 4 of them representing the different color iterations for under $6.

I'm looking forward to the first color coat (ESB/ROTJ blue) this weekend. Will post pics in separate thread.

Cleaning up my "Watch" list and forgot this post from 9-years ago. Better late than never, here's the what I went with on the ESB paint scheme! :lol:
