25.02.2007: New MINI Model!
Another but lesser known Colonial fighter craft from the original 1978s series appears in the episode "The Long Patrol". It's called Scorpion, and is similar to the Viper, except that the wings are not angled and the top engine is missing. This model uses two different 1x5 pieces which prooves the importnace of such pieces.
