I never had the A-Wing when I was a kid, But in the early 00 I got my first A-Wing fighter. I Must say it is a fucking cool fighter 8)

Sorry about some bad old pictures of my A-Wing Fighter, I can't get it out at the moment so I can take some new and better pictures, because I have constructors in my home.

I too do not and have not ever had an A wing.
I’m not collecting ships this time round, but would make an exception for one of these, I think they are a great ship.
