Hi all,

Just joined. I live in the Netherlands and according to Deagostini over here the Millennium Falcon is just a myth, there is no model of the ship and even if there was, Dutch people are not allowed to subscribe to it.

After some haggling, I managed to get one in 2 shipments from the UK, and after 2 years I was finished building and modifying her.
I added a soundboard, disconnected the engine lights (because why would the sublight engines be on when its landed, right?), the engines are now on a separate switch which also activated a take-off procedure sound effect. On the other side of the engine is another small switch that also actives a lift-off sequence, but that ends in a catastrophical engine-failure LOL. I also added several hidden switches for the bottom white, red and landing-gear lights... moves the battery box towards the rear, had the engine plate removable using magnets so you can access 6 additional 9 volt batteries... actually... I did a lot.

some of the mods got broken after a few months due to my trial and error technique... so I am putting this one up for sale in order to buy a new kit and start all over again...
anyway, here are some pics and the link to the building diaries

on the pics you can see the hand-built cargo, the hidden switches and the extra lights I installed.

thx, will need to make better photos, but she's bound for the comic-con Utrecht this weekend, so currently she's locked away in her custom made crate
