Thanks to the Star Wars Model Kit Gallery site, I now know a lot more about the vans and have a better idea of what they looked like. Generally made of around 25 pieces and released in 1978, the kits looked fairly easy to assemble for the 8+ age group.
Of the three that were made, my favourite is the Luke model with “Artoo-Detoo” a close second. I’m not too keen on the artwork for the Vadar van but I’d still like to own the full set!
Be sure to check out the Star Wars Model Kit Gallery site for more great models and to see the instructions and more images for the van kits.
