To the cowboys who haven’t woken from the dream–the definitive Swordfish II memorial model.
From the anime series “Cowboy Bebop” comes a 1/48 scale model of Spike Spiegel’s Swordfish II. Under the supervision of mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, the unique design of the Swordfish II has been faithfully captured with fully articulated parts, light-up elements and highly detailed paintwork.
Size: 30 x 36 cm
The model features articulated folding wings, landing gear that can be displayed both retracted and deployed, swiveling ailerons, a telescoping and swiveling plasma cannon, an articulated air brake, removable cockpit unit, a canopy that can be opened and closed, an included pilot figure and a special stand.
The model features an ABS construction with parts such as the landing gear made using alloy. Utilizing advanced weathering techniques, the model has been created with a realistic, vintage appearance. Removable and interchangeable parts to display the maintenance hatches opened are also included. Lights on the ship and the engine thrust reverser light up using the included LEDs.
