About this deal

The idea was to let the falcon fly through a kind of halved tube. This will then be equipped with a Death Star surface, which I will create later. And it's all looking rather wonderful. Both the Falcon and the base. Great paint on the Falcon along with the weathering. Extra support was needed for it to stand unaided and so the Falcon gained another 2 landing gears as a 'Han & Chewie improvement'

You had to use a lot of force to snap the component into place. With all the color, however no wonder. Theres a thread over at Starship Modeller about the likeliness of Bandai releasing a large scale Millennium Falcon model kit hopefully soon, the main topic being whether it will be based on the 5 foot Falcon or the 32" Falcon......and the likeliness that it would be a tie in with the new film coming out at the end of the year. What is of no use at all from the original kit are the LEDs. They’re way too weak. Disappointing for a 400 euro kit. Especially since there are very bright lights for a mere 8 cents apiece. I am in the middle of building this now, and I think I will probably paint it fully assembled, although being a bandai kit, it push fits together, but the fit is so snug that there is a danger of damaging the part when trying to prise them apart. You can modify parts to make this easier though. The art of these surfaces, which consist of many individual panels, is to emphasize them differently. This creates a sense of depth.Tolle Arbeit bei der Verwitterung! Ich liebe die Modelle Millennium Falcon und Bandai. Eines Tages werde ich eins haben. Auch als Italiener kann ich nicht anders, als zu sehen, dass es die gleiche Größe wie eine Pizza hat 🍕 . Ciao! I'm a little unclear on something, unless I missed it. Does the MF in the new movie have the extra gear boxes. If it's based on the 5-footer, does that mean it does not? Or if since the boxes were added to the 5-footer model, they ARE on the "new" version?

I didn't do anything idle during the week when I introduced myself here with my first construction reports. Apply the decals first after removing the surface details. Otherwise I would have had problems with Microsol myself.The next reason is that the chippings taken from the film and adopted by Bandai in the decals are way too coarse for this scale in my opinion. That fits more in 1:35. The precisely recreated quad laser cannons are mounted onto the detailed turret seats and triggers. The 32'' was modelled with the same 5 gear boxes......and gears,.....was that the 32'' we see leaving the Bespin platform?[/QUOTE] The cables will be extended here later and new small plugs will be soldered on, because I did not build the control unit and the loudspeaker into the model, but into the diorama. I shouldn't be replying as I've not built mine yet but I have built the 1/144 scale version. Most of the Millennium Falcon is the same colour so it is easier to paint mostly built....or at least in large sections.
