B-Wing on the left, Droid Fighter centre foregound.

Picked the droid fighter up for 50p at a car boot sale last weekend.

Its not a titanium and I'm not sure if it came from a set or on its own. I will have to look into this...

Edit: Found it. It was a single-blister toy.

I used to have the vintage SD and MF, great toys at the time, very well detailed and the packaging was excellent too. A few years back I started to buy the cheaper Action Fleet collection ships, not exactly the same as the old vintage ship's or Titanium ship's but I quite like them for the quality and overall look.

Be good to hollow out the engine struts on the Y's, hate that whole chunky look they have. I fancy a few Die cast ships you know....

Hmm I see what you mean although since they are made of metal, hollowing them out won't be easy, might have a greater chance of wrecking them, so I kinda left them this way heh.
