A number of half price Revell Star Wars Model kits at Amazon

These are the best I reckon:

Millennium Falcon (£14.89)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001VEJ0Q4/

3 Fighter Model Gift Set - X-Wing Fighter, TIE Fighter, and Y-Wing Fighter (£14.89)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001VEJ0Q4

Republic Gunship Easykit (Clone Wars) (£10.65 less than half price)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Republic-Gunship-Easykit-Clone-Wars/dp/B001VEJ0RI

V-19 Torrent Starfighter Easykit (Clone Wars) (£8.51 less than half-price)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/V-19-Torrent-Starfighter-Easykit-Clone/dp/B001VEJ0S2

There are a couple of pocket models for £2.55

Some of these seem to be price matches with play.com but they don't actually appear to be in stock there.

I would strongly recommended use of modelling glue with these models despite the fact it isn't supposed to be needed. It is much easier to make them and they will then put up with a certain amount of abuse. In particular a precision modelling glue such as http://www.amazon.co.uk/Humbrol-Precision-Poly-Cement-28ml/dp/B000JCE68Q

Good price and decent kits.

Good price, and heat added. Though according to my son (age11) Revel aren't as good as Aifix kits - apparently 'Revel are ok but the pieces don't always go together as they should, whereas Airfix are always really good'.

Oh and just to say, for anyone thinking of buying for the grandkids, the Revel 'easy kits' are better for younger kids as there's less to assemble and they're far less fiddly. Pre-teens might find it a little patronising to receive an easy kit.

I use to find that Airfix kits, revell (non japanese) are all quite poor quality. have to pay more and buy japanese like tamiya or hasegawa for precision fits and superior detailing.

Hi all
Id just like too point out that i bought one of these expecting it to be the size they state ie 57cms long
Its actually a lot smaller than this about 35cms . I told them this and they havnt yet changed the details online to say.
THIS WAS A WEEK AGO SO NOT GOOD IS IT??????
BEWARE

yeah revell kits are know to have poor quality parts, parts which don't and parts which have leaked from the mould when being produced.

price is tempting but you will jsut end up regretting it since the parts are so poorly made.
Its a wonder how they even got the license to make these models.

The three Revell Star Wars Easy Kits I've had have all been absolutely fine - no reason to think that the Falcon would be any different.


It might be worth mentioning that the three models in this set
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51yV5-L1BCL._AA300_.jpg
are not all in the same scale. the X-Wing and Y-Wing are a smaller scale to Darth Vader's TIE Fighter.

I haven't had any particular problems with the Revell Easykits or the Pocket Easykits and I think they have a good level of detail. I think you have to expect a small amount of trimming or filing will be required. The ones to avoid IMHO are the Airfix Starter sets - poor detailing and poorly fitting parts, often twisted.

As stated I would recommend the use of a precision poly cement.

They name easykits derives from the fact that they're supposed to be "easy" because the parts fit together without glue, but I've found it easier to use glue otherwise I tend to find that while trying to click one bit into place another bit ends up coming out. I don't think they're especially aimed at younger children as the Airfix Starter kits are.

I went for a £2.55 anakin fighter as a stocking filler. fantastic thanks.

TBH all kit makers have good and poor kits, some of the new Airfix kits are pretty good though (Spitfires Mk.I, IXc and PR.XIX or the MiG-15 in normal red boxes are a good first choice), and as long as you steer clear of Revell's £3.99 kits (mainly the P-51D 'Cookie' and Bf-109E - these are of a similar age and quality to the kits given away with the Telegraph last year) and multipack sets such as the Battle of Britain one, you'll find mostly new kits of good quality in their range, I would say Revell go in more for tiny details such as radio antennae that you'll likely snap or lose mind.

@electric0ant: parts which have 'leaked' from the mould, this is called flash and is pretty much universal in injection moulded kits, to one extent or another, at the minimum you'll have a ridge along a part (which is where the two halves of the mould meet), as a mould gets used, this will extend out from the part in places due to wear, but is easily removed with a knife or file.
