Fine Molds 1/72 Falcon

Recommended Posts

When I said it would be slightly bigger I was estimating that based on the size of the figures in the MPC kit which are slightly smaller than 1/72. I never actually bothered to look up any numbers to check if that was correct.

At the end of the day, who cares how big it is, I'm sure it'll be a great model regardless.

If I remember correctly, the "real" Falcon was about 30-35 meters.  I was trying to find this out so that I could calculate the actual scale of the MPC-ERTL kit.  If I'm not mistaken it came out to be within spitting distance of 1/72 on that basis.

Rigth, I was wrong, but just a little...

I checked my MPC, and it's 46 cm long.

If you look carefully to the pics here :

you will see, written somwhere 42 cm. I can't read japanese, but it is certainly the length, no doubt...

It's still smaller than MPC Falcon...

Completed model measurement:

L430 x W317 x H90 mm meaning L17" x W12.5" x H3.5"

Total part count : 800 +

No. of runners: 17

I think it is another stunning piece after Bandai's 1/144 Gundam Dendrobium which was also sellling at 20,000yens! :cheers:

At the going grocery rate, rocket bottle Guiness is $1 per bottle..

So, the question really is, am I willing to trade 185 Guinesses for this kit...

decisions, decisions...

Nah, that's crazy talk... :)

but the kid doesn't REALLY need shoes and I can steal toilet paper from work...

Good thing there are not too many kits in this line. I will be buying one.

I doubt it will be as high as it has been rumored.
