The LEPIN sticker sheets are usually pretty accurate in terms of color reproduction. This set has a strange greenish tint where a darker gray would have been in the original. It’s not terrible, but still slightly more noticeable in person.
11 Huge engines to the rear to provide full thrust for a diplomatic escorting mission.
Some of the locking pin pieces that LEPIN produces are very difficult to insert into their sockets. These bottom-fit pieces appear to be the worst.
There’s also no particularly robust way of connecting the mid and rear sections. I found it best to open the inner-most flaps and apply pressure internally.
The finished product, sans stickers. I have to say this is one of my favorite UCS ships, and Lepin’s reproduction is fantastic. While some substitutions were made, I can safely say that there were no truly “missing” or deformed pieces.
