This is a great add-on to the core set and a good buy if you only have the one core set. As you would expect the ship is highly detailed and well painted. Its the little details that really catch the eye like the individual panels and the drive flare on the engines. The quality really stands out as there are no mould lines. The counters and tokens as well as the ship and ship upgrade cards are high quality also. I would combine this purchase with a single core set, corellian corvette victory star destroyer and both rebel and imperial fighter squadrons to give you 2 powerful fleets and hours of fun.
