Contrary to the one poor review, this is a model kit - it is a SnapTite style Revell Star Wars -Millennium Falcon model - meaning there is never any glue required. I took a [small, calculated risk] in buying this kit and was very satisfied.
The price-performance of this model is definitely worth the money and was fun putting it together. I have been assembling model kits for over 35 years - I can honestly say this is an easy build with great looking results. A perfect introduction for young future-modelers - especially with parental guidance for the really young ones like my son.
From the time I opened the box until the moment my son had the model flying through [kitchen] space was exactly one hour - and that was with 4 year old hands "helping." Fit-n-Finish: the painted features of the model were very well done and authentic - better than I might have been able to do - certainly much more cost effectively and in much less time. The fit is a little rough in a few places, but nothing grossly out of place. In fact, several "cool" features my son appreciated were the working ramp, gun turrets and dish.
I did put a few drops of glue on the parts *after* full assembly - knowing a 4 year old can be a little rough on models - but the SnapTite design is quite rugged out of the box. For a model requiring no glue - this one is not coming apart easily.Read more ›
This kit is a plastic scale model kit intended for the beginner modeler.
The kit was well made, with minimal plastic cleanup required from the injection molding process.
The instructions were clear and the parts all snap together easy and intended.
As listed in the description, no glue or paint is required, however, you can use model cement for a more solid assembly, but keep in mind the kit is a static model and not intended to be a toy to play with.
The proportions and detailing of this model are more movie-accurate than the playsets scaled to the 3 3/4 figures. However, more demanding fans will note that the side walls are too tall and the slope of the dorsal and ventral saucer plates are flatter than in the movie (I'm geeking out so sue me). For more serious modelers, a wash may bring out more panel line definition. The "real/reel" Falcon has much more detail, but for the relatively low cost and ease of assembly, Revell deserves major kudos. The opening landing hatch is a nice touch.
This model took about 2 hours in front of the tv for me to assemble. I carefully use a hobby knife to smooth the parts after cutting the parts off the sprues. Part fit was quite good without glue. Make sure you carefully follow the instructions, as there are several points of no return if you mess up. The front panels of the docking mandibles have a large number of small projections along the upper and lower borders. Be careful not to apply pressure to these areas while assembling, as they are easily shorn off. You may consider gluing the Han and Chewie figures into their seats. Han fell off his chair on my model and the canopy doesn't open so getting him seated again will be hard without breaking the model.
This model was lots of fun. It's not as "toyetic" as some other renditions of the Falcon, but is pretty easy to assemble into an attractive model. This model is not for toddlers, as one good frisbee toss will likely cause irreparable battle damage.
In summary, kids 8 and up and geeky grown-ups with limited time to detail their models will likely enjoy this model. The ease-of-construction and level of detail are well-balanced for these niches. I plan to hang this on my ceiling locked in combat with Snaptite Slave-1 which I also highly recommend.
