    Great post. Bookmarked.

    I can confirm there are two parts used from this kit that are missing from the starboard mandible.

    Thanks Junk Pilot for the confirmation.
    If any other parts are missing please share. Also, what is missing and where it goes.

    Please know to anyone who reads this... this request goes out to you as well.

    Thanks!

    dtssyst, Do you know if Deagostini included these, or are they missing also?

    I am unsure what kit the part on the right is from.

    Thanks for all the info in this thread. it's still useful even if not build a DiAgostini Falcon!

    Don't run to the nearest store...
    Trains & Lanes Hobbies in Easton PA has a lot of Floquil and Polly Scale paints in stock. The price is 5.99 a bottle plus tax.
    They only have Floquil Primer in stock. All other colors 'used' for the falcon are sold out. I looked really hard for them.
    However, They do have Reefer Yellow, Concrete, Reefer Grey and Caboose Red in Polly Scale.
    Again, they also have a lot of other colors available in both Floquil and Polly Scale.
    I love that store. Just a few months ago when I was there they had the Estes Darth Vader tie and some of the other estes rockets really cheap on some clearance rack in the front

    It's nice walking in and seeing long out of production kits pop up on the shelves. At one point they had some of those old Vinyl Alien facehugger kits and some other Alien kits

    Currently tinkering on my SS Salzo X-Wing. I'm going a little crazy trying to get it just right. Maybe a bit too much. lol

    We don't get up that way often. But Kristine knows when we are in that area I want to visit that hobby shop.
    I love going. Just as you said, a lot of vintage kits still on the shelves. I could spend hours looking around but she gets the look of can we go now. My only problem is that I do the same thing at Hobby Lobby.

    I may not be building my falcon at the moment but all the information I find useful towards my build will be included in this thread. I am glad that others find it just as useful. More information coming. Not sure when I'll post it as I am awaiting DeAgostini's response on the missing parts.

    My wife Kristine received some good news yesterday. Her latest results are showing that her cancer markers are going down. A great Christmas gift indeed.

    Update to first post.

    Please know:
    At this time no promises are made to have these missing detail parts being available outside of our self and dlbsyst.

    It has taken a lot of time, research and expenses to acquire the kits needed/wanted for DeAgostini's error and or omission. We currently feel that we have obtained the kits we want (see first post) for said missing details/parts. Yes, there are more details missing. Could we get them all? Yes. Is it a smart thing to do? Probably not due to cost and time involved.

    With that in mind, we are not seeking all the kits needed for the missing details/parts. Some parts will probably be scratch build or we will improvise another kit part that is an extremely close match to the original missing detail/part.

    Thanks for viewing and stay tuned... there is more to come!

    Thank you Junk Pilot.

    UPDATE 12/27/16: this part is not missing. Move along, move along, this is not a part we are looking for.

    Speaking of adding fuel to the fire...
    I know of at least eight more parts that are missing just for the side walls. I have my eye on two model kits for a few of these missing parts. I'm very tempted to buy them. :-)

    We really want to start getting the aftermarket stuff from Shapeways and Paragrafix. So... that is it. No more model kit purchases to have the missing parts (unless something major rears its ugly head). We will be scratch building the other missing parts or we just will not have them on our replica.

    That part is not missing. It's included in issue 85 and I've added it to my build already

    Didn't notice that. Thanks mktodd but the DeAgo part looks too big though.
