Truth be told i was taken away when i received the box with a nice touch. A Covalex shipping sticker (little premium touches). I then opened the box to have a lovely packed kit with a premium finish with each part inside. Honestly i havent build it yet. I love the personal note and certification of conformity included is also a nice touch (would order again 5*)
I have nothing but good things to say about not only this model but many others that I have bought! The level of detail and work put into the model is absolutely incredible. This is my very first model that I have painted and I can say that I'm very happy with my decision in buying this. If you're having any doubts about buying one for yourself, have no more! You wont be disappointed!

The Arrow is my second model kit from JRD+F. After the Greycat PTV this kit tokk fidelity to the next level! With their SLA printers you can see every intricate detail like rivets or panel lines on the surface. As we learned in their Sunday livestreams all of these details are meticulously added by JRD+F themselves after they got the game engine model data from CIG where these details were only flat textures.
This kit also is also their first kit that can be reconfigured into landing and flying mode after assembly and painting. They use little magnets to snap the parts together. And you can change the weapon loadout to your liking with their weapon packs that are sold seperately in the same scale.
Landed or in-Flight - you have the choice
Deutsche Version am Ende
The Arrow was the second model I bought from JRDF. They did a presale back then, in which I participated, since it really looked cool.
The kit is very sophisticated, with either landed or flying configuration. This is achieved by adding a ton of magnets to hold interchangable parts in place (like landing gear, wings etc).
I love to look at the parts, but did not yet find the time to assemble it. But the Box on the shelf also looks cool in itself :-)
Den Modellbausatz der Arrow war das zweite Modell, dass ich mir von JRDF gekauft habe. Diesmal in einem Pre-Sale, weil schon da alles richtig genial ausgesehen hat.
Dieses Modell ist sehr viel komplizierter, als z.B. der Buggy, da man einen Riesenhaufen Magnete verbaut um verschiedene Teile wie das Fahrgestell oder die Flügelenden austauschen zu können. Damit kann man das Modell entweder im gelandeten Zustand oder im Flugzustand zusammenbauen.
Aktuell liebe ich es nur mir die Teile anzuschauen, da ich es bis jetzt noch nicht geschafft habe das Modell zusammen zu bauen. Aber auch die Schachtel alleine macht im Regal echt was her ;-)
First model - first class!
This was my first model I purchased. Not only from this site or Star Citizen but also in general.
And I can asure you: the price has its reason!
So is the packaging outstanding: a sturdy cardboard-box with a magnetic lock, which holds all the pieces secuered in foam.
And the model itself is amazing. It is tiny but so rich in detail. Tiny bolts and structures. The idea to use magnets for different display options is a great one. With other "cheap" models you mostly stick with one option or have to mod it by yourself. But here it is intended to be changed if you get bored.
Display it in flight mode or with the landing gear down/ wings up. It is your choice.
And if you are bored, shot the pilot in space via ejection seat!
I'm really impressed by that quality!
First off, upon delivery, I found the packaging super high quality, clearly put together by hand and very well protected during shipping. I especially loved the star citizen branding placed around the shipping box
Having never made a Model Kit before, I was concerned at the complexity of a Model such as this.
However, the included guides blew me away on walking me through the process every step of the way and I ended up with an incredibly high quality model with great attention to detail.
I found the detachable parts via magnets very intuitive, allowing me to have the ship in various configurations.
Exceptional fidelity to match in game with amazing detail.
I first was able to hold this model in my hands at CitCon2049 and I was just blown away. I know, I know, I work with these guys but that doesn't make me immune to being impressed with the quality. I had helped a bit with the Arrow and it was the first time I was able to see it IRL. The tiniest details were there, like the rivets and internal structure of the wings! Having the parts to switch from landing to flight mode is another great added bonus. It allows the customer to pick their pose and with the new weapons packs, you can match it exactly to your in-game Arrow!
