Finemolds 1/72nd scale Millennium Falcon

Corellian Engineering Corporation YT-13 Transport [Han Solo Modified]

Model Built 21st December 2012 to 22nd August 2013

 

 

All details of this build can be found here. Details of the kit and accessories can be found here. I picked this up as a light diversion after having struggled for nearly four years to finish three Il-2 1/48th scale Shturmoviks. I wanted something that could be thrown together in a few months and something that would be easy to make look good. The idea was to build it straight from the box. Well, ambition got the better of me and I succumbed to the temptation to get some photo-etch and electronics for the kit. When all said and done I spent over 300 importing the kit, and its various aftermarket extras, all the way from the USA. Seems there is not such a market for this stuff in Europe. Don't know why. Anyway, 8 months later (a bit longer than planned) the Falcon is finished and it looks good.

 

The custom made base shows the Falcon lifting off from Echo Base on the ice planet Hoth at the beginning of "The Empire Strikes Back". The cockpit is fully lit & features Han, Chewie and Princess Leia. If you unscrew the bayonet-mounted coms-dish you find the switch for the LEDs that light the kit. The 9v battery is in one of the under-carriage bays - the undercarriage can easily be popped out to facilitate a replacement. There are two spotlights on the front of the mandibles, a lit engine compartment (blue LEDs), lit cockpit and lit gunwells. I hope you enjoy the finished article as much as I did building it.
