So now we enter unknown realms with this build. Issue 5 is the first new magazine outside of the original four and for some reason DeAgostini have decided to bag these parts instead of using the card back (which i liked). I worry about postage on these items, but this batch came through OK.
The parts included with this issue are the cockpit access passage, a lighting board and some more of the cockpit panel.
Issue 5 has a nice close up photo of the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit.
The first part of the magazine is about the Corellian Engineering Corporation (CEC) and their starships. Quite cool actually. Especially as the EU has been relegated to Legend status.
It’s also great to see that they are pulling together information and pictures from all elements relating to the Millennium Falcon. The cutaway diagram on the left is from the brilliant Haynes owners manual, whilst the drawings showing the official variants is from the West End Games role playing game.
The smuggling compartments are shown on a blueprint. A shame as i love the bespoke drawings that this magazine has.
Overall, this is a good issue. I am really pleased to see that the magazine continues with keeping stuff not relating to the Falcon to a minimum.
I would like to know if you have someone that sels the issue
DeAgostini has stopped selling it now, so your best bet would be Ebay. Hobbylink Japan sell Japanese copies.
