I think a fun idea could be to re-create the landing pad at Cloud City, which iirc is some kind of over-hanging landing pad, unsure how big it is in the movie though.
8. April, 19:27
nice. what lighting kit did you use?
8. April, 19:51
Great job on the paint and weathering. The lighting takes it to another level. 🏆

Spanjaard - I used the kit from Captain Jack's Models:
For future projects though I think I would just wire my own.

😎 build 👍

I stand by my previous evaluation.. you really have captured the essence of the Millennium Falcon in all her glory.. the nuances of painting and weathering, the added lighting with leds and fiber optics, in my humble opinion, is one of the highest achievements of dedication in scale modeling, and captures the dream in a moment of perfect clarity..🤩
18. April, 09:37
Thank you JD, really appreciate it! I'm a huge Star Wars fan and wanted to build a falcon ever since failing at the lackluster MPC kit years ago.

I think I have the same lighting kit for my atrocious old MPC Falcon. The lights are excellent! I can't wait to see how it turns out.
9. April, 21:56
That's look a😎 build, I'll 👀

Thanks guys, I'll see if I can dig up more
Of the in progress pics from this build. Think they're in my Instagram archive.

I have just been looking over this kit and have my doubts about the scale. It is listed a 1:58 but when you compare the included figures with 1:72 Airfix pilot, they seem about the same size. Also the nose to tail length is of about 46.5cm, this is sort of near the size of the PG Bandai kit, could any Millennium Falcon experts shed any light on this for me.

The model kit is 46'5 cm long (as you mention) and according to the book "Modified YT-1300 Corellian Freighter Owner's Workshop Manual", the ship's length is 34'75m. So that would make the scale to be something around 1:75, instead of 1:58

I've always liked the cover art for this model. Do you know who the artist is?

I dug out my built, vintage 1983 kit that I built in 1984 or 85. Poorly built, but I liked it. I added scans from the instruction sheet, complete with rusty staples and deteriorating paper.

Thank you, guys!

@Black Baron: They had one studio scale model for ANH and a second, smaller one for ESB and RotJ. Althoug it was smaller in scale, the second model reproduced the form and weathering of the older one quite faithfully. So, the reference to be had is photos of these models that are abundant from the exhibitions of the past. The movie footage does not provide acurate views of the details of the MF. So, I take the studio models and transform them into what they would look like in real life (in my opinon).

@Bernie: The white is MRP-099.

Very impressive!!

Finally, I'm nearing completion of painting that thing. Also I installed the electronics package.

Looking forward to see it with light 🙂

Only a small update - I finished the boarding ramp and the landing gear. The cables are old guitar string.
