The final Version of my painted Grill and the final Version of the Top! No more changes ✌
since I missed out on my big toy, I picked up the Revell snap-tire Falcon that’s about 8” diameter today. It lights up I guess! Batteries included!
Maybe next week sometime.
Seriously she's perfect!
And paint worked... didnt need that PE grill after all.
Did they end up giving you good reference shots in the magazine?
I hope you have a nice area to display her.
Hey MartinH, I finished my Deago MF approx 2 - 2 1/2 yrs ago mate and it was a mashup of the 5ft & 32” filming models (along with personal mods !)Where are the Deagostini Builders? I‘m thinking if I should buy the paragrafix Engine Grill but I don’t know, it is more expensive than my Air brush. Is it worth it?
thank you Josh! What do you mean, if the Deagostini magazine had good reference pics? For a limited time online but I didn’t download them when they were available. So I started without good reference pics but the internet and nice other users helped me out.
I read about the deagostini Falcon since 2016, built it in 2018 (hated it) before the birth of my first child and now used the lockdown to paint it eventually. I am glad that another model builder suggested to use air brush since I had a lot of respect trying it before.
I wanted to put it on a Wallmount in a corner of our sleeping room. My wife for sure wouldn’t be happy but I also don’t know if I still want that because you need good lights to display the model. We will see. First my 2. child will arrive in the next month and will be priority no.1.
Hey Gedmac, I‘ve already seen Your pics, looks really good. I don‘t mind if you are sharing them at all .Hey MartinH, I finished my Deago MF approx 2 - 2 1/2 yrs ago mate and it was a mashup of the 5ft & 32” filming models (along with personal mods !)
Your paintwork and weathering is fantastic !...,
Hope you don’t mind me sharing a few pics.
I think they also had mostly pics of the bottom. Steve D seems to keep the top for himself ^^.Yeah I was referring to the magazine. I didnt realise they only put the pics online. I thought they were going to publish them. If another run of this ever comes through Australia I will have to subscribe. I remember at the time dismissing it thinking what half arsed BS are they concocting here... joke was on me!
Good luck with the new one. We planned for 2, two accidents later we now have 4 with our eldest being 7. It's a busy house!! And I understand just how busy you will be.
My plan is to build an enclosed coffee table to display my falcon. Im sure you will come up with something soon enough mate.

Isn’t the deago available anymore in Australia?
Ok thanks.starks I just found 3 cheap offers online. And they all made the same mistake (like me before) because deago told us so in the magazine: Everyone painted the different Engines (? well I call them so) in Black and dark grey.
I made the same mistake before building the model and used many qtips and isopropanol to get rid of the paint.
Another example of the unnecessary mistakes they made. And that these used models aren’t expensive here...
