I’m subscribed to the DeAgostini Millenium Falcon model. At the end it will make a 1:1 replica of the large filming model for “The Empire Strikes Back”. It will be massive at over 3 feet long and contain quite a bit of detail. Here is my build diary for this model.
PLEASE NOTE: It will take over a year just to get all of the pieces, not counting any touchup and building.
This is what each monthly pack will look like – 4 issues of the magazine each with corresponding parts bubble:
To Start with I’m trying to decide what to do with the cockpit parts. The stickers are decent, but I’m researching some photo etch parts to make it look better. I also want to get the second laser cannon and then smooth out and re-paint both of them at the same time.
OK I worked out what I should do with the cockpit. I ordered some etched brass flooring and some photoetch airplane cockpit items.
I cut out a brass sheet to fit the cockpit floor, primed it with Grey primer, applied a silver and black wash to the floor.
Stay tuned for more updates, coming soon.
