AMT Cutaway Falcon - purchase or pass?

Recommended Posts

Have seen one of these on offer for sale 2nd hand. Not mint in box or anything but is unbuilt and complete. Price is reasonable I think...

 

I know it's not really that accurate (inside or out) and not even in the same league as anything larger scale by Bandai or Fine Molds.....but since those are in a galaxy far far away from my budget right now, is it worth a purchase or should I pass on it?

 

Welcome your thoughts..

Cheers,

Dermot

Hi, Dermot. 

 

If it's more than £45 or 50 (or the equivlant amount in Euros?), then I'd say give it a miss. As you know, it's a big, chunky kit, but I have seen some amazing, built versions of it on the Net.

 

I guess that it's the same as any kit - it is what you make of it.....

 

Cheers.

 

Chris.

Unlike the cut-away NCC-1701 Enterprise, which was a complete new tool, AMT did use the existing MPC Falcon parts from the late seventies and added an interior which was not regarded as too "accurate" at the time the kit was released. So if you are after a very accurate Falcon kit from the box, I would give it a pass - way too much scratchbuilding and aftermarket parts would be needed.
