Badab Fleet Eagle


The Badab Fleet two-seat Eagle Fighter is equipped like a Lightning with twin linked lascannon and an autocannon on an AA mount. This example is from 89 Squadron. Note the personalised nose art.

Note the twin rocket boosted turbofan engines for atmospheric flight, and the three ion drives for low orbit transit. The twin communication crystals on the upper hulls are shown in this photo.

  5. Great fighter! Curious, is it a German WW2 "what if" model or a kid's toy?

  6. Dear Cyborg
    It's a Revell Star Wars Fighter in about 1:35 scale. However, I have kitbashed the thing fairly substantially, cutting off the rear booms and adding fins.
    Glad you like it.
