Re: Large scale Millennium Falcon Kit ID's

Pic MF008 part-1 doesn't appear to be from the Tamiya 1/35th King Tiger, the turret part details while quite similar to the part in the pic are slightly different. I'm picking it's from another KT, maybe Bandai?.
Anyone have an alternate King Tiger kit to be sure?.

Guy, many thanks for the pics, just awesome, appreciate you taking the time to do this.

Re: Large scale Millennium Falcon Kit ID's

Hi Guy,

Just managed to download those pictures. Great stuff. Got some more of the underside which is really handy. Thanks very much. One can only wonder at what that other set you lost would have been like....gulp!

Cheers
Nick

No problem, they're going nowhere for a long time. Please feel free to use them as you wish when you get em. Hopefully there will be some shots you need. Like with the PD I lost a ton of them from my computer, these where the shots I took on my first fleeting visit. I did have the hole bird mapped out with around 200 shots on my second visit....never to be seen again!

Not at all fellas, even if there is just one ID found from my pics its worth the time to put em up.

Re the lost set, I was totally gutted. I lost a ton of Sand crawler shots also, that really hurt.

Glad to help.

Stu, I'm not sure which KT you're talking about but if it's the one on studioscale.com, keep it mind this one was never used in any Star Wars stuff because it was not available at this time. There is a vintage KT made by Tamiya, it's very rare and Ive never seen any scan of it beside the boxart so I'm not sure if that's the right kit. But seing the copula being molded with the top of the turret, that's probably one of those early crappy Tamiya models !

Hey Julien,

The KT I have is #57 (35057) in the Tamiya MM range, dated 1975, so was around in time for ANH. The turret just doesn't match the part in Nicks parts map.
I don't have any scans of any other 1/35th/24th KT's so really hard to do a comparison lol!.
Kt donor parts are all over the Falcon, but as to which kit from which manufacturer is used is a problem. I'll just have to buy a few KT's & have a look to be sure.

I'll have kit Scans of the Bandai 1/24 up before the end of the weekend.
Im on holidys then & will do as many new Kit Scans as possible of the kits I haven't scanned yet.

Hey Stu, there was an older KT made by Tamiya (Mokei). Is that a KT w/ Henschel or Porsche turret you have ?

For the King Tiger? Please, and thank you! I think the Panther scans are up at the Studio Scale Modelers site already.

Re: Large scale Millennium Falcon Kit ID's

Hey Omes72 ( mate, what's your name? feels way too impersonal :))

Glad you like the start we've made, would certainly appreciate any help you can offer re scans and casts. I see there is some deliberation over the KT turret. I've got a Bandai 1/24 KT and its definitley not that.

The idea of an older Tamiya version sounds plausible, but not sure where that leaves us as far as getting hold of one. Is there any correct box art we can use as reference when scouring Ebay!?

From next week I'll have normal access to my home PC so will aim to do some more work on these maps, and start on new ones.

Re: Large scale Millennium Falcon Kit ID's

Nick, do you happen to have any pics of that Bandai 1:24 KT?

Julien, I have the Nichimo KT - I picked it up when I picked up the JagdTiger for the Y Wing because I wasn't sure which one was the right one. All the parts are off the trees and in containers though, so I don't think I can be of much help here.

Yes I did a full set of hi-rez sprue pics, was going to offer them up when Omes72 said he could whack some online. I'll try and get them posted up tonight for you.

As far as I know the Bandai 1/24 King Tiger is not used on the 5' Falcon...:rolleyes

Re: Large scale Millennium Falcon Kit ID's

OK, the 1/35 Tamiya Mokei seems to be the right kit.



Kit n°20 (NO.MT120), released in 1967.

Hope that helps Nick !

Re: Large scale Millennium Falcon Kit ID's

Hello

My Father and I are huge star wars fans and are considering building this model for something of this scale how did you make the main body structure as we are looking for ideas of how to do ours great work by the way it looks amazing

Kindest Regards



Hi Folks,

Please see the first of the big 68" Falcon partmaps I've been tinkering up. I've got these all saved as PSD files so I can go in and add/amend to them as required. Plan is that once we get as much as we can ID'd the finalised and 'signed off' maps can maybe go on the Studioscale site for general access and to save people having to keep re-inventing the wheel as far as kit part ID'ing goes. I'm also drawing up a spreadsheet to log what kits are used as a handy reference. Seems like there are also a few kind souls who would be up for casting the odd part from the very rare & expensive kits, which would be a massive help. I'll do the same once I get my stuff out of storage.

There's a hell of alot more to do but hopefully these maps are a start. If any of the kit bashing grandmasters out there like Julien, Lee, Jamie et al can throw us a few bones it would be much appreciated. If you see I have mis-identified anything, likewise let me know.
As I've said elswhere if/when I get to the point of actually making the big MF I'd be prepared to offer some casts of key areas as a starter kit, however I don't want get ahead of myself just yet!

Seems like there a few folks out there trying to pull this big project off, if we can work together maybe we can actually get it done while we are still young enough to enjoy it! :)

PS: Very sad to hear of the untimely passing of Grant McCune. What a tremendous artist, and what a huge legacy he helped leave to us.


Nick

Your'e a saint Jase, makes life sooo much easier with gents such as yourself posting up these rarer kit scans. Really appreciated, cheers.

Julien, my kit has a 'Henschel' turret. This older Tamiya (Mokei) could just be the one, but would need a better pic of the turret. Thanks for posting those pics though!.
