A heavy ship this one! The packaging is notable for a big error ‘empire’s largest space craft’ which was subsequently corrected

I don’t have any Die-cast but the MF is my favourite. Very cool. 8)

I never had any die cast when I was growing up. Come to think of it I didn't even know they existed until mid 90's.
This can only lead me down a dark path....... Again. Lol

Never owned a die cast myself, am on the lookout for a hot wheels MF though.

Got to be the coolest ship ever 8)

Thanks Mini, the stars are an exploding firework on bonfire night - I was surprised how good the effect was

I purchased a boxed Kenner Falcon from the US at the start of the year, but it's been at my brother's house waiting to be sent over. I finally received it last week. The radar dish is loose, so I'm treating it as a puzzle and expecting to spend endless hours trying to get it back in place!! :lol:

No problem. I'm hoping to clean up the box as much as possible and get it in an acrylic case.
