Ok im desperatly looking for ships (XWING!) from StarWars as a display statue, simular to the X-Wing Collectors Lego set. Though I'd like to have one in some other material. Made to be used as display primarly. Are there any such statues on the market?

Thanks :)

If you are a model-maker, you can search for AMT model kits, like this one:
http://au.store.yahoo.com/peedeetoys/21868.html
their index of Star Wars Model Kits is weak, but they have a couple here:
http://au.store.yahoo.com/peedeetoys/hobbies-plastic-model-kits.html

I built many of their models for Star Wars and they're brilliant. Great detail and lots of pieces. The Millenium Falcon had over 150 pieces---painting and assembly took me over a month. It's 18 inches long. It's the best model-kit I ever owned.

The X-Wing, Vader's TIE, Sandard TIE, and Y-Wing were made to scale with each other. (about 7-10 inches long)

The scales of the other AMT models differed, but if I remember, they also made:
The Tideriun shuttle,
The speeder bike (with pilot),
C-3PO,
R2D2,
The ATAT,
The ATST,
The Star Destroyer,
...and probably more.

They had a Snap-Tite series that included:
A-Wing
B-Wing
TIE Interceptor
all of these were about 4-6 inches long (to scale with their Millenium Falcon Model Kit).

If this is what you're looking for...Happy Hunting

thanks for the info raVen! :) Looks great all. Guess this is the best solution. Though are there also models like these that you don't have to assemble and paint? :D Like models out of some kind of plastic that are already put together hehe. That are 'one' piece in a box :)

You mean almost like carved statues or something... I can't really explain it either, but they usually aren't plastic and are painted, but they cost a lot and are hard to find. Best bet is to look on eBay ;)
