I'm wondering if the build pattern will be the same as Millennium Falcon. Not only screw together parts, but also glue small details and paint/customize parts. Or it is
a simplified build?

I really enjoyed building Falcon in this way.

I guess nobody knows at the moment, but it might be worth keeping an eye on the US Facebook page. It starts in a week or so over there.

I should imagine that they will want to stretch out the build to over 100 issues to maximise their profits, so I would expect that if will be similar to building the Millennium Falcon with lots of add on bits as well as any inaccuracy's (not intentional) will be down to individuals to add their own customising detailing. We will have to wait and see when this comes out to find out for sure

According to the FB page, This Partwork is live in the USA and Germany. It also suggested on the FB page that this will be released in the UK around Easter (but don't hold me to that, it's only a rumour ;) )

Looks like the website has gone live

https://www2.deagostini.com/uk/products ... 130000000/

Just over 2 ft in length and width, this is going to be a large model. Almost as big as the Falcon.

For the premium subscription, you get a diorama.

Free subscription gifts

Set of 3 Posters, Binder, Stormtrooper powerbank, Set of book ends, Wall bracket

Free Boba Fett figure and Tin poster (which I got with a previous subscription) I'm not sure if these are with premium subscription only

Looks like an awesome model, but space and expense, I feel that I could purchase an X wing model kit of the same as the Deagostini Falcon for a fraction of the price. I'm going to have to have a think on this one :think:

I'm 100% in for the premium to get the diorama extra pieces. Just playing the waiting game for this to get released in Australia.
