IT'S MAY 4, SO TODAY IS STAR WARS DAY and here is a look at probably the biggest kit of the Millennium Falcon available.

SMN report: The DeAgostini kit assembles to make a 1:1 scale replica, though the 1:1 scale refers to one of the prop models used for filming – not a life-size ship! Even so, the model is a massive beast when completed, as you'll see in the video below.

Of the kit, DeAgostini says: “This official model of the iconic Millennium Falcon is a 1:1 replica of the original Empire Strikes Back movie prop, and also features unique internal details, lighting and movable parts."

The kit comes as a partwork, and like many of these, has some extras to go with the actual model components.

DeAgostini adds, “Your magazine will include easy-to-follow detailed Assembly Guide plus a fascinating look inside the Star Wars archive with The Starship Fact File, The Guide to the Galaxy and The Secrets of Spaceflight.

“Easy to construct but with an unprecedented level of realism, it really is the ultimate Millennium Falcon model.”

Enjoy the movie (below) and it has a relaxing sound track, too. Thanks for uploading!
