    That's a nice kit !

    It looks like some parts are exactly the same than the Nice-N TIE, the ceiling of the cockpit is the same part.

    between 12.8 and 13 cm
    but i think it's not the correct dimension of the real cokpit ball !

    the first step that I chose are the wings!
    these are relatively quick to finalize because they just need a good kitbashing
    although theT tracks will be molded with the wings I chose to sandit and redo.
    details as to clarify that the two wings are not the same!
    oh ! I forgot! all the missing parts on the filming model are in the kit
    here is some pic of the right wing
