Fine Molds 1/144 Scale Model Kits
« on: February 13, 2010, 07:11 AM »
Since we have a thread on Fine Molds 1/72 Scale Model Kits, Fine Molds is coming out with a 1/144 scale Millennium Falcon which I thought deserved it's own thread.

Bigbadtoystore has this 1/144 Millennium Falcon model kit up for preorder for $74.99 with a release date in late April.





More pictures can be seen over at HLJ where it was shown at the Winter Wonder Festival 2010 in Japan.

Small-Scale Falcon from Fine Molds

According to the HLJ link, this Falcon might be a little over 7 3/4 inches long.

Not a bad price considering the 1/72 scale Millennium Falcon that came out a few years ago commands a hefty price of $375. plus.

I'm interested in smaller scale kits...  Fine Molds has really been unmatched in their quality, so I expect more of the same.  1/144 is tiny though, but I'm expecting some bigger ships now getting made.  SSD's, SD's, MCC's...  A lot of that has never been done with any quality detail to it, so I'm curious what they may try.

Yeah those 1/144 sets of ships have been on my "to-buy" list as they're insanely accurate for their scale, and the secret ones are especially rockin' "EU" ships.  Having a Falcon to match would be quite interesting.
