Fanhome, the creators of the subscription model program, has announced its latest addition – The Millennium Falcon.
While one might think the build a model subscription service would result in a relatively small rendition of the Millennium Falcon, this 1:43 scale model will measure 32-inches long by 23-inches wide, which is quite large in our opinion.
Fanhome shared more information about its latest offering:
Build your knowledge about the legendary Millennium Falconand its design and evolution as construction progresses with a full-color magazine that accompanies each month’s shipment of components. Discover how Industrial Light & Magic’s model makers designed and built the many props and sets that were used to bring the Falcon to life on screen. Packed with little known facts and anecdotes, these issues feature rare behind-the-scenes photography and revelations about the real story behind the Star Wars movie magic.
LED Lighting Effects
The Millennium Falcon model includes internal wiring and LEDs that can be connected to an internal battery or external low-voltage power source. Separate systems can be turned on to illuminate the rear sublight drives, forward floodlights and internal cockpit lighting.
The exterior of the Millennium Falcon includes many fully articulated parts that include the upper and lower quad laser cannons and the rectenna dish. The Falcon’s boarding ramp is also movable and will lock into either flight position or landing position for display mounting.
Screen Accurate Interior details
While the outer shell of the Falcon is inspired by the filming miniature used in the movies, it also features removable upper panels that reveal interior details seen in all three movies – including the cockpit, the main hold with its engineering station and dejarik hologame board, gun controls for the quad laser cannons, and Han Solo’s smuggling compartments.
Fanhome Millennium Falcon builders will receive a variety of special additional items at various stages of their subscription that include a limited-edition T-shirt featuring a Millennium Falcon design as well as a hand painted die-cast miniature of the ship, a ceramic mug and baseball cap and special binders to archive all the collected magazines. For a limited time, subscribers paying with PayPal will receive an additional gift from Fanhome – a durable backpack emblazoned with the emblem of the Rebel Alliance and Resistance and an eye-catching Falcondesign.
If I had the time and money, this is definitely a high-quality model I would want to add to my Nerd Room of Doom – or maybe even use it for our Star Wars Fan Film…
