  1. Does anyone know where I can source kitbash parts for the Falcon? I'm not looking to make a studio accurate replica so I'm not too fussy, but I'd rather try and find a job lot of parts rather than spending money on individual kits.
  2. Thanks you for all this information! It will be a huge help with the Falcon, I had heard that WW2 tanks and cars were a good source for parts but I hadn't considered the other kits you have mentioned. You are correct that this at the moment will be a one time project, as a child I often built model aircraft and then as a teenager I was more interested in sci-fi kits like the ERTL Star Trek series. I haven't built a kit since before my eldest child was born so that's probably about 15 years. I do have some kits still waiting to be completed such as the Cutaway Millennium Falcon, ERTL Enterprise-D, Moebuis Battlestar Galactica and now this Disney Falcon so I am hopeful that I will get back into model building. I have no experience with kitbashing as every model I have built have used the standard or manufactured replacement parts. I did once light a ERTL Enterprise-D which took forever to drill out the windows but I am looking forward to sourcing parts for the Falcon, I'll hopefully find some bargain kits on ebay as there are no longer any decent model shops in my area. Thanks again!
  3. Okay, I haven't found anything suitable at a reasonable price so I'm going to try and find some kit parts to make the sidewalls. I've heard that car and tank kits are the best for parts, does anyone have any recommendations?
  4. Hi, I'm finally looking to paint my Disney Millennium Falcon (large toy model) and I was wondering if anyone knows where I can buy the replacement sidewalls at a reasonable price? I've seen some sites selling these part but they are around £100 for both sides. I'm not looking to recreate a screen accurate model but if anyone knows of any cheaper alternatives then that would be helpful. Thanks
  5. I've had a closer look at the Revell Snap kit, it looks better than I first thought and with a bit of work it might just do the job.
  6. I have seen this, it looks good for a toy but I'd rather try and get a more detailed model. Thanks
  7. Thanks for the replies. I had hoped Revell might be making a larger version similar in size to the old MPC Falcon Kits.
  8. Has any one seen if there any large kits of the SOLO Millennium Falcon planned? I'm sure I've seen a small snap kit from Revell but I'm looking for something with more detail and bigger. Thanks
  9. I love this new A-wing, it looks identical to the original Ralph McQuarrie concept art. Much like the T-70 X-wing is close to the original concept art.
  10. The cheaper version, the master series is a bit too expensive for me.
  11. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has built this kit? I'm thinking of getting this and I've seen the forum review but I'd like to see some builds if anyone has completed one. Thanks.
  12. Excellent work mate! I'm looking forward to seeing it when it's finished.
  13. The same for me, never played the game but as you said it does look like fun, I was looking for a model of the Outrider and some members of this forum recommended the X-wing miniatures version. I'm very impressed with the detail of these models! I have to admit I am tempted with the Blockade Runner after seeing your photo's.
  14. I recently got the Millennium Falcon as well and I agree it is nicely painted and detailed. I also have the Outrider YT-2400 which is also an excellent model and is probably painted a little bit better than the Falcon as I find the Falcon is painted a little too dark.
