Revell feels the force after a Jägermeister, a Vampire, Ju-88 and a couple of choppers...

We look at Revell of Germany's new items of May, with a couple of Porche's, a WWII favourite, cold war fighter and some small scale helicopters and a very small scale ( but very large) Star Destroyer. We have pictures of the made up models and colours & sprues in our preview...

This is a Revell re-box of the recent Zvezda kit that now one can seem to get their hands on.
After Chancellor Palpatine rose to power, the wedge-shaped Star Destroyers were the backbone of the fleet, one reason being their massive firepower, and they were present in almost every battleground. These long-distance spacecraft were capable of travelling through hyperspace and carried the dreaded TIE fighters, yet were also deployed in system-wide invasions.
