Revel 1/72 Razor Crest

January 23, 2022 · in Sci-fi · · 14 · 2.3K

After making the lovely little Bandai Razor Crest, I couldn't wait to get the larger kit. It arrived just after Christmas and I was going to start it once I'd finished the old Airfix Concorde, but got impatient and started this.
It's very good, and apart from a free small issues I'm happy with it. There are a couple of mould offset problems near the nose, and one engine nacelle has slight alignment issues, but all fairly easy to fix.

Possibly the first model spacecraft to feature a toilet?

I've decided to try Mr. Color Super Metallics, with Super Stainless for the main fuselage colour, rather than the Alclad Chrome I used on the Bandai.

  1. This looks like a really nice kit and I like the fact that they did the interior! (I take it the Bandai is 1/144? It is REALLY shiny!) Hopefully they (or Bandai) will do Slave I and the Imperial Shuttle in 1/72 too. I like the Europa in the background BTW. Is it Tamiya's?

  2. Very nice.

    What about the Europa in the background?

    • It’s the Tamiya 1/24 Europa. I’m a bit of a Lotus nut!

  4. Thanks much for sharing. I want one…no wait two!

  5. I’ve bought some more Super Stainless paint and given the ship a second coat. Here are a couple of test fit shots (no interior fitted).
    It’s going to be a long job getting the finishing touches done!
    I’m doing her landed (there’s a stand included for “flying” mode) and will have two hatches open.

  6. I’ve applied the decals and landing gear. Added some hydraulic lines for the landing gear.
    I wasn’t happy with the way the front ramp looks when fitted, so I cut off the “hinge” and filled the gap with a bit of card.

  7. Fantastic work Kevin @injidup - Love this ship - really want to get one - hope I can get it as nice as yours, some amazing detail.

  8. I notice that Revell have released a new kit of “Boba Fett’s Starship” from the recent tv series. I think I may need to add that to my stash!

  9. I have just about finished this, and will take some photos when I can find a suitable backdrop!
    There’s definitely scope for more detail with this kit. Maybe I should buy another and spend much longer making it next time! Or just wait for Bandai to bring us a 1/72 Razor Crest (and the new star Naboo restomod fighter)
    In the meantime, here’s what I have…

  10. Good news! It looks like Revell will be releasing the Naboo Starfighter from Mandalorian in 1/72 some time this year (2023).
    Definitely one to add to my collection
