Though you can get an “official” Snowspeeder model for Star Wars Legion, I have been thinking for a while about getting the Revell 1/52nd scale model kit of the Snowspeeder. Mainly as I wanted to use it as scenery (more than as a vehicle in the game) and partly down to cost. The Revell kit was £8 and the “official” Snowspeeder model was over £30 when I last looked on Amazon.
The Incom T-47 Snowspeeder is a two-person, all-terrain vehicle used by the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. It is a heavily modified version of the Incom T-47 Airspeeder, which was originally designed for industrial cargo handling. The Snowspeeder is equipped with two forward-facing heavy laser cannons and a harpoon cannon mounted in the rear. It can also tow cables, which can be used to disable Imperial walkers.
The Snowspeeder is a fast and agile vehicle, making it ideal for use in combat. It is also well-suited to the harsh environments of planets like Hoth, where it was first used in combat. The Snowspeeder played a key role in the Battle of Hoth, helping to defend the Rebel base from an Imperial attack.
The Snowspeeder is a versatile and effective vehicle that has proven its worth on the battlefield. It is a valuable asset to the Rebel Alliance, and it has helped to turn the tide of the Galactic Civil War.
The Incom T-47 Snowspeeder was first seen in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back. It has since appeared in several other Star Wars films, television shows, and video games.
The kit contains 23 parts across four sprues.
I was disappointed with the size of the crew figures, for what is described as 1/52nd scale. They are really tiny.
The nest stage will be painting some components black before constructing the model.
