    sorry to dissappoint fellas, but I havent been able to work on the MF in quite awhile as real life has intruded into my wonderful little hobby... I did manage to shoot a boatload of new pics when the original was on display in Brooklyn, NY (it was horribly displayed with awful lighting) so that will be a big help. Rest assured I will post new pics when I make some progress! Thanks for the interest....

    I don't know if this is old news or not but I've identified a part on the engine wedge as a part from a 1/35 leopard tank kit. I can't post pics to show but if anyone is interested e-mial me and I'll e-mail the pics of the part.

    I don't know what's known and what's not on this thing but I found parts from the Minicraft 1/5 Mazda Rotary Engine on it. There's a big chunk on the sidestarboard mandible right up near the cockpit.
    BTW- if anyone wants this kit, I'll sell mine. I was hoping it might have prop parts in it- no luck.

    hey I know this is an old thread but I am still very interested in trying to build a large falcon
    so have continued to id parts
    I wish there was a way to post pics
    the tops of the mandibles where they meet the main body dish there are two strange looking humps one on either side kind of like peaks in front and then flat in back well I beleive they could be the cockpit tubes from 1/12 F1 tamiya cars I haven't cooberated this yet as my kits are in storage but if some one could look at thiere if they have the time and availability I would appreciate it
    thanks
    ca

    I have a question about the 5 foot falcon- is that 5 feet wide or long?

    Everyone over at the 32" falcon thread is busy trying to get their hands on the 1/8 porsche tranny. Building the 5 foot falcon, you could prabably get away with using a real porsche tranny!
