    Bandai release schedule

    I’m excited about the clear parts. If you want a window somewhere, scratch a bit of paint off. This has the advantage of making the windows smaller than .25 fiber, if your patient enough. Tiny windows are what give a model of a large subject it’s sense of scale.

    Bandai 1/72 PG Millennium Falcon (also the Revell Germany rebox)

    It's hard to see at least...although just behind it is a sort of trident-looking part that's molded in like a solid block... I thought about chiseling it out and replacing it too but I was like "aw, I won't notice it"...but I still do...

    Bandai 1/72 PG Millennium Falcon (also the Revell Germany rebox)

    Ha, sorry for the confusion, it’s some styrene rod that I added. The 5 footer has a similar piece. The bandai version is molded partially into the “saucer”, and partially into the back of the mouth section. So there is a gap/seam in what should be a solid rod/pipe. I chiseled the bandai parts...

    Mine has a gap. I flexed the edges of the saucer to eliminate that part of the gap, but I left it between the "jaws" and the back of the "mouth" References suggest there is a gap there, you can even see electrical wires through it.

    Re: Bandai 1/72 Millennium Falcon I had recently scratched this part from my limited sources... looks a bit out of proportion now. Nice work on finding the real source!

    Re: Bandai 1/72 Millennium Falcon Yes, I put .5mm fiber in mine, I added a dimmer to make sure they weren't too bright. I melted the ends with a soldering iron and painted with tamiya transparent colors.
