Hasbro V-19 Torrent Starfighter

The V-19 Torrent manufactured by Slayn & Korpi is an assault fighter with exceptional speed and maneuverability. Widely used by the Republic during the Clone Wars, the V-19 was unique in that it had folding airfoils that gave the ship added maneuverability and was armed with two blaster cannons and two concussion missile launchers.

Among many of the Star Wars universe of vehicles, the V-19 Torrent Starfighter is one of my favorites. The new Revell Snap-Tite is rather small and very flat in terms of details. The whole Star Wars Snap-Tite line from Revell, reminds me of the now defunct Action Fleet from Galoob Toys which years ago I used to collect.

The pictures here present the V-19 Torrent Starfighter from Hasbro. I decided to do a few tweaks by adding some dings and dents from space battles, eliminating the landing gear wells and repainting and weathering what out-of-the-box is a too ”clean” representation of the famous starfighter from Clone Wars.

Enjoy the pictures, I hope you like my version of the V-19 Torrent.
