Darth Vader's TIE Fighter
Plastic model from MPC/Ertl
This ship belongs to the wide family
of the Empire's TIE Fighters. It is a specially modified prototype that was
used by Darth Vader and is officially known as the TIE Advanced X1 prototype.
It is technically superior to all the common TIE Fighters and it is the only
TIE that has a hyperdrive for traveling in hyperspace. Thanks to this, it
is totally autonomous and does not need to be carried inside the capital
ships of the Empire.
The model is one of the best in the Star Wars series because it's very
big and detailed. There is a sitting figure of Darth Vader in the cockpit
and you can see inside through the opening hatch on the top.
