Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan (born Leia Amidala Skywalker)
This is a 1/6th scale vinyl prepainted kit from Polydata (1995) built 12/24/2012
I purchsed this kit along with Ben Kenobi a few years ago on ebay, and it sat in a pile of kits awaiting my attention.
This was a simple kit to assemble and construction took just about an hour to build.
Leia stands the better part of 10 inches from head to toe.
The model is based on Carrie Fisher from Star Wars Episode IV : A New Hope which was the first introduction of the Star Wars franchise is 1977.
One complaint I do have of this is her gun refuses to stay straight.
All in all it's a pretty nifty model to build. The vinyl deformed a bit while waiting assembly. The hands were a bit of an issue getting the alignment correct. This would be a great model for a younger budding modeler, or even a father son project as the gratification is almost immediate and the model is a satisfying representation of Ben Kenobi.
This is kit STW-004. I have seen the 2 other kits from Polydata (Hans solo and Luke Skywalker) and the faces are not as accurate as this one of Pricess Leia. (or as I call her.. PILF).
