Modeling Star Wars – Star Wars Legion 74-Z Speeder Bikes

Modeling Star Wars kits is quickly becoming my favorite part of this scifi journey I am on. It combines my love of the plastic scale modeling hobby with George Lucas’ beloved universe from a long time ago. (In a galaxy far, far away.) And the two parts combined add to somehting greater than their parts for me.

I built Star Wars models as a kid when I could find them. I recall building a large Darth Vader model, and also his TIE Fighter. Somewhere along the line I picked up a Hoth battle set, which had all manner of Star Wars goodness.

A Dry Spell, Then A Return To Modeling Star Wars

When I returned to scale modeling in 2006, I focused primarily on single engine WWII fighters. But after a decade of that, I made a shift to the scifi genre.

Bandai’s line of Star Wars kits immediately caught my eye, and I began to build more than a few of those. But it was when I “discovered” Star Wars Legion that the possibilities really opened up.

Star Wars Legion is a tabletop game that is essentially playing with toy soldiers on steroids. There are rules, range measurements, and so forth. However, I’m one of the oddities that doesn’t play the game. I just enjoy building the kits.

And there is a huge selection of kits available. Loads of characters, like Luke, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan, and so many others. There are also quads of Stormtroopers, Rebel Troops, Clone troopers, and other factions. The vehicles, such as these Speeder Bikes, are also well represented.

I don’t think it would be going to far out on a limb to say that there is something for just about everyone to enjoy building and painting when it comes to Star Wars Legion kits.

I’m certainly enjoying them, and 10-year-old Jon is having a blast too. And when you get right down to it, that’s what matters.
