Hi everybody,

I have some doubts about the top-right first hole from the Falcon’s mandible. It is not a perfect circle and is misaligned with panels. I have not found reference image of this hole to check...
Do you know if it is in accordance with the original Falcon or if I have to do a sanding work to rectify this defect?

Thanks

:unsure: Don‘t get me wrong but even if it should be a mistake it is not really noticable. I would rather concentrate on the best paint Job possible but that’s just my opinion. I heard that it is a great model, have fun(y)

Thank for answers.

Yes, it is really a very beautiful model :love: The problem is that as soon as I know of an imperfection, it disturbs my mind, I cannot ignore it and I only see it. :(

Had a look through images, yes I'd say trim the circle to where you've marked

According to the picture in this post SW – ANH (5 Foot) - Studio Scale Millennium Falcon Build it seems to be paint.
The image also confirms the "wrong hole". But maybe that on the ANH Falcon studio model, this hole is like Bandai did. :unsure:

PS: Anyway one of the two PG models i have will be converted to ESB Falcon, so i need to trim this part at least on one of them.
