Speeder Bikes and ads from Fine Scale Modeler, Jan / Feb 1986
The 1986 Jan / Feb edition of Fine Scale Modeler featured a step-by-step guide on how to build a Return of the Jedi diorama. The results are impressive, and part of the diorama – featuring a Speeder Bike and Scout – is shown on the excellent cover, seen above.
Inside there are some nice modelling ads from companies like AMT, Testors, Fujimi and MRC-Tamiya, all of which feature below. Enjoy.
