In today`s build report, I`m tackling the 6813, Galactic Chief.
This small set came out in 1993 as part of the Space Police II range, and I got it in a lot a few weeks ago, even coming with it`s rather intact (but not sealed) box.
The minifig sports the updated Space Police uniform, with a microphone headprint.
Like a small boat, the bodywork is centered around a duo of inverted slopes, connected by a small plate.
On top of this is the `engine block` mounted.
With a nice printed front piece added to the grey wings piece, the engine fuselages are added as well to the back of the small vessel.
Add the canopy and the little vessel is all done.
It`s a small and simple spaceship this one, and for me the biggest let down is that there is nothing in the way of control panels of transparent piece buttons on the plate that resembles the `steering wheel` of the vessel. On the plus side, we get an okay minifig for exchanging and the printed slope which is pretty okay as well to trade around. But all in all, not to great a set in my opinion...
