Metal Millennium Falcon model

I just won this metal [pewter?] Millennium Falcon model on ebay. It looks like the sort of metal models that you’d get for wargaming. I know nothing about this as there’s no makers mark. It’s marked as Empire Strikes back so it could be vintage. I’ve seen similar items but paired up with Boba Fett’s Slave 1 (Mike has a set in his collection). I have a feeling that this could be Japanese.

On delivery, it was slightly bigger than i was expecting. Iwon’t be making this up as i’m a terrible model maker, but it is nice to add to my collection. I still need to look for the Millennium Falcon/Slave 1 pair though.

A long time Science Fiction fan and Star Wars collector, my collection focus has taken a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship and I thought that i'd start this blog to keep track of my collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as i progress.

    Tsukuda metal kit. millennium falcon vs slave1 1982. Kit from japan. Just bought same kit you have in same packaging but thats not the original packaging.. I’m thinking its a a recast. I also bought the star destroyer of the same company…comes with the little falcon that sits on the bridge. Got the kit from a guy in italy with no info on these kits. He had them for 20 years or so.

Will confirm and send you pics of it when I receive it in the next week or two!
