Boba Fett's ship the Slave 1 is one of the memorable designs from the Original trilogy of Star Wars films, and even put in an appearance in the Prequels in a slightly better state of repair under the helm of Boba's dad Jango.  The Bandai kit is an excellent rendition of this craft, and if you have both the Boba Fett and Jango Fett boxings, you're going to need two of these.

The set arrives in a small cardboard box, with the three resin parts safely inside a small ziplok bag, surrounded by the short and mostly pictorial instruction sheet.  The underside of Slave 1  becomes the rear when in flight, and shows three exhausts, one of which is elongated, the others round.  The kit parts are probably adequate for a lot of folks, but for the detail hungry, these replacements will be just the job.  Each one is covered in detail, especially within the round exhausts, which have exquisite interior ribbing that would be impossible for your average modeller to carry off.  The modeller will have to ensure that any raised detail under the exhausts is removed from the base, and once the parts are cut from their bases, which is clear from the instructions, they can be glued in using Super Glue (CA), most likely after painting.  If you want to see one solitary photo that will convince you, here it is – lifted from their site:

Extremely highly recommended.
