Celebrations Anaheim will be in full swing now. Alas, i’ll never be able to attend, but i can live vacariously through other my way of excellent web sites like Rebelscum. A massive part of this year’s celebration is Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens. No doubt you’ve seen and been overawed by the new teaser trailer and as well as all the discussion panels, there is also a display of some of the costumes and models used in filming. Below are photos taken of the Millennium Falcon fiming model. (Click on the image for full size.) Apparently, This was one of 11 Fine Molds kits that was used to work out the logistics of the full scale build.
There’s a lot more coloured panelling than i remember from the original trilogy, which I kind of like it. I particularly like the engine details in this model. I’m also not sure how i feel about the new antenna. I suppose it’s a bit sleeker than the old dish. I’m sure i’ll get used to it, soon. Thanks to Rebelscum for the photos. Check out the full gallery here. I’m hoping we’ll see an actual filming model some day soon.
