The ship that started them all! We designed the scale of our Runner specifically for sitting on a 12” deep shelf so you would have no problem displaying this fantastic model. Engineering this piece was a real challenge. The entire structure except for the head is entirely hollow, allowing for square aluminum extrusion to be used as an internal structure for rigidity and strength. We chose square tubing unlike any other kit that has been released because round tubing tends to want to rotate and we wanted the most stable structure possible. Our runner is locked in and you will never have to worry about it tilting or falling and our unique system of supporting it from the back allows the ship to have the illusion of flying on its own!

Our signature production process is what makes a Merlin model kit great. Using our custom RIGIDYNE casting material and limiting the use of our molds we are able to keep our castings pristine and each piece is cleaned and polished before being packaged. Long gone are the days and weeks spent cleaning parts, filling gaps, and frustrating yourself from poorly designed custom kits! Welcome to Merlin Models, where we do our best to get it done right!
