AST 1/1000 Defiant Kit Preview (part 1) - Unboxing/First Impressions!

Post by MEATLOAFr » Sun May 20, 2018 3:54 am

Once again Polar Lights was kind enough to provide AST with a pre-release sample of the upcoming 1:1000 Defiant kit. I was, joyfully, selected and asked to write a review.

So, let’s take a look at this kit:

Bottom of the box

In the box there were just 4 baggies, (the Stand with a metal rod, 1 with clear parts, 1 of the main kit parts, and the last baggie with the decals safely sealed inside) and the single page folded instruction sheet.

A close-up of the suggested colors:

The box states there are 30 pieces, but I only counted 28 – 2 for stand, 13 clear, and 13 colored styrene

Stay tuned – I will be doing a full OOB build of the kit

I am really looking forward to one of these; almost to the point of salivating. :lol:
