DeAgostini: Build The Millennium Falcon; Issue 5


So now we enter unknown realms with this build. Issue 5 is the first new magazine outside of the original four and for some reason DeAgostini have decided to bag these parts instead of using the card back (which i liked). I worry about postage on these items, but this batch came through OK.

The parts included with this issue are the cockpit access passage, a lighting board and some more of the cockpit panel.

imageThe first part of the magazine is about the Corellian Engineering Corporation (CEC) and their starships. Quite cool actually. Especially as the EU has been relegated to Legend status.

imageimageIt’s also great to see that they are pulling together information and pictures from all elements relating to the Millennium Falcon. The cutaway diagram on the left is from the brilliant Haynes owners manual, whilst the drawings showing the official variants is from the West End Games role playing game.

imageThe smuggling compartments are shown on a blueprint. A shame as i love the bespoke drawings that this magazine has.

About mffanrodders

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.
