X Marks the Spot
Each Metal Earth model is laser etched in meticulous detail on 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see the Related Products below).
The X-Wing is an intermediate difficulty Metal Earth model. It consists of 26 pieces on two sheets of metal. The X-Wing is the primary interceptor and dogfighter of the Rebel Alliance.
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for small children. Metal Earth was originally called MetalWorks.
Are you curious...?
The X-Wing was designed to look more like a traditional fighter aircraft than the Empire's TIE Fighters. The Star Wars novelization and original movie script refer to the Rebel X-Wings as "the Blue Squadron," but they got changed to red in order to work with blue-screen filming.
Unlike the Empire's cheap, disposable TIE Fighters, X-Wings have shields and a hyperdrive, although they rely on an astromech droid for navigation.
