The Argonauts line can be considered the "original Fine Molds". They were on the Star Wars model scene several years ago making top of the line kits. Their Millennium Falcon is one of my absolute favorites of all time. The value of their kits has skyrocketed and it is no surprise. Like Fine Molds, they are accurate to the last panel line and are superior to many other kits. Fine Molds may have the advantage in that their kits are made of styrene instead of Argonauts' Resin, Vinyl and Metal. This Interceptor kit was a lot of fun. There were only a few parts, wings, guns, cockpit frame, main body and top/bottom pieces. Some were metal, some were resin. The detail was very sharp and the parts fit together very well. This is surprising considering the age of the kit and the "warpability" of resin. After assembly was complete, I painted it with all of my standard TIE colors and picked out some details. Voila! A finished, highly accurate TIE Interceptor. Like I said, the value of these kits has skyrocketed and I got this kit off eBay for $80. Not too bad considering it had a $100+ price tag still stuck to it.
