I too will not be doing any further Deag part works.
I signed up to this build as it was billed as
“With its unique molded metal and resin construction, this is the most detailed Millennium Falcon model ever. Your 1:1 scale movie prop replica is 808mm long, 596mm wide, 192mm high and it weighs 24 pounds. It has pre-painted hull parts, with working electronics and removable panels to view the interior. It’s just like the prop from The Empire Strikes Back.”
this is the most detailed Millennium Falcon model ever
These quotes are straight from the website:
Is this the most detailed model ever? No.
Is it as detailed as the original filming model? No.
Have we been mis-sold? Yes.
This is the opportunity for Deag to respond to these issues. Their reputation and future revenue is at stake here.December 5, 2016 at 9:04 am #26869
I have just unboxed my old FineMolds Falcon, and can see a few of the parts mentioned and highlighted on my ‘smaller/older’ model.
Although I’m only two thirds through my build, I can’t really believe these details are missing!
I too would love to hear from DeAgostini as to how these were missed from being included on our modelDecember 5, 2016 at 3:32 pm #26873
it would seem they are to busy pushing the r2d2 part work to respond obviously not reading the threads nowDecember 5, 2016 at 10:10 pm #26879
A post on Facebook shows the Deag Falcon in issue 100 that some parts in fact aren’t missing. Odd.December 5, 2016 at 10:43 pm #26881December 5, 2016 at 10:57 pm #26883
I am hoping someone with issue 100 can verify this.
Oh, it’s a post by a Torsten a few posts down.

That link isn’t public. Screenshot or summarize?December 6, 2016 at 3:42 am #26886
Ugh. So i’d have to screenshot and upload that to photobucket to put it here. It’s basically a pic in issue 100 of the mandible with the two pipes and ‘anchor’ shape on there. He argues that it must be the Deag as the issue 99 shows the bracket mount holes. No one has confirmed or denied his argument as yet.December 6, 2016 at 3:54 am #26887
Well i had a look in the scaleauto factory page and the pipes are not there. Shrug.December 6, 2016 at 3:57 pm #26892
Page 19 in issue 6 clearly shows both parts on the cockpit, and the cover picture on issue 68 shows the pipe and crucifix part on the port side.
Cannot find a decent picture showing the other parts.
If the product displayed in the issues is a prototype, or a prop etc…then I can’t see any disclaimer saying “model and parts will differ” from what you actually receive.
