The DeAgostini Millennium Falcon, Issues 9 – 12

Welcome to Episode 3 of my journey in building the DeAgostini Millennium Falcon.

If you missed the last two episodes, check them out here:

And just in case you don’t know, the DeAgostini Studio Scale Millennium Falcon is a 1 to 1 replica of the studio model used in filming Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and is one of the largest, fully licensed commercial model kits on the market today.

Things to call out in Box 3

Cockpit Canopy

The instructions say to not glue this together, but the cockpit kept falling apart, so I had to glue it. It’s so much better now. I hope that come box 20 I don’t regret this decision.

Interior Pipework

In hindsight, I wish I had weathered the wall before gluing everything down. So just keep that in mind when you get to Issue 11.
