millennium falcon 1-72

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the premiere of "Star Wars" in Japan, Fine Molds has released this fully assembled and stunningly painted and weathered version of their outstanding 1/72 Millennium Falcon kit (it’s the straight kit, with no lighting or extra detail parts added…there is some nicely done battle damage, though)! Limited to just 500 units, this fantastically finished model is mounted on a beautiful wooden base with nameplate and serial number, and covered with a removable crystal-clear acrylic case. The craftsmen at Fine Molds love "Star Wars" and love the Falcon, and it certainly shows in the high quality of this beautifully finished model!
