Introduced in the first Star Wars prequel, 1999's "The Phantom Menace", the Naboo Royal Starship boasted a sleek, 1950ies style retro design intended to reflect the optimism of the Old Republic. Unlike the rigidly geometric, greeblie-covered ships of the Empire era, Naboo technology was smooth, polished and very, very civilized. The Naboo Royal Starship boasts a strikingly beautiful design that embodies the craftsmanship that prevailed in the peaceful years of the Republic. The polished, streamlined J-type 327 Nubian vessel lacks any offensive weaponry, but does feature strong shields and a competent hyperdrive. During the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo, Queen Amidala and her retinue escaped aboard the Royal Starship. Piloted by Ric Olie, the vessel narrowly avoided the Trade Federation blockade, though its hyperdrive was damaged. The ship limped to Tatooine, where a replacement T-14 hyperdrive generator was procured.
This kit contains all necessary parts for assembling ONE Nubian Queen Amidala royal starship model under 1/268 scale (total length 284mm when fully built) to be combined with same scale spacecraft models or figures and make a fine diorama display. The model is during flight pose and no landing gear included. Any additional diorama accessories are not included and should be purchased separately.
