French Meccano X-Wing Fighter: The French version of the Star Wars X-Wing Fighter. Aside from the fact that the text is all in French, the box doesn't differ a whole lot from the one issued in the States. But it's interesting to note how the Meccano designers made the dual silver "racetracks" bordering the photo merge into the La Guerre des Etoiles logo. The idea worked much better with the simple Star Wars of the English-language boxes.
