Holy hell...  $430!?  I dunno that's a good bit pricey, but that's me.

On the Y-Wing...  OUTSTANDING model by Fine MOlds.  There's not been a good Y-Wing kit on the market in... well, forever really.  AMT/Ertl's kit isn't their worst but it isn't their best either.  It lacks a LOT of detail.  This Fine MOlds kit might even be my favorite above the Falcon, which is their most intricate kit, but the Y-Wing is just such an overlooked ship...

I'm geeked to see what they do with other ships...  FM has really taken modeling to a new level for SW fans, so it's nice to have those as an option.  I just wisht hey would get imported for a fairer price.  Sometimes it's a real tough decision to pick these up, especially that Falcon (oh how I want one and just cannot justify the price).

The Y-Wing's piping details though, amazing...  And the back panels are great too, and a tough detail to spot even in person on the actual prop.  I'm excited for this kit and it's a must-buy for me.

A Modeler's group had this on display at CV, it's an amazing piece!  Verrry tempting.
