Based on a concept of being the “perfect replica”, the “1.7-meter studio model” has been thoroughly researched to achieve a totally uncompromising and faithful reproduction of not only the exterior structuring, but the inner Cockpit and Quad Laser Cannons as well.
● Obsession with Accurately Recreating the Studio Model
Two trips to examine the prop warehouse and the help of Studio Model Specialists Hiroshi Sumi and Seiji Takahashi, “1.7-meter studio model” has been thoroughly researched. All of the details from the studio model are reproduced, thoroughly reproducing the studio model at a large 1/72 scale size at a total length of 482mm.
● Reproducing the Finest Details
Creating even inner details that will be concealed in the end.
The shapes of the seats, console panels, and the instruments on the wall are all accurately recreated. By constructing this kit, fans can improve their structural understanding of how the Millennium Falcon is piloted.
・Quad Laser Cannons
The precisely recreated quad laser cannons are mounted onto the detailed turret seats and triggers.

Walls of the Holes
Not only on the structures inside the holes, but also the various configurations covering the cylindrical walls are thoroughly reproduced.
・Sides of the Ship
Separate pieces for each detail were created to recreate the deeply-detailed sides of the ship in a three-dimensional fashion. The free-running pipes are represented in combination with individual pieces for a closer resemblance to the studio model.
・Between the Mandibles
The center of the ship is complex, but it was accurately perceived by investigating and studying the “1.7-meter studio model”l that was used in the movie. Its complicated structure has been faithfully recreated.
・Around the Exhaust Ports
The complex details on the top of the Millennium Falcon are precisely crafted.
The kit offers a choice between plastic and etched pieces to create the mesh vent grills, allowing for a more in-depth recreation.
● LED Light-Up Feature
The shining lights make the kit appear as if it is about to take off.
For the PG 1/72 Scale Millennium Falcon, white lights were chosen as a sign of respect toward the first movie.

・Landing Gear/Boarding Ramp
The three iconic landing gear legs are illuminated with LEDs and sturdily support the ship they did in the movie.
The lights also help to recreate the image of the ship when it is parked.
The boarding ramp is sculpted with such detail that it almost would not be surprising if Han Solo made his way down the ramp at any moment.
The characteristic panels on the back of the cockpit light up as seen in the movie, evoking memories of memorable scenes.
