Oh yeah, the Argonauts Falcon. Once considered quite possibly the greatest Star Wars kit ever, this kit has since been surpassed by the Fine Molds Millennium Falcon. But don't let that fool you, this is still a gem of a kit. Argonauts was granted full access to the Star Wars studio models so all of their stuff is just unreal. This kit is probably the rarest and most valuable of all Star Wars kits. I don't even know where to start with this kit. It was just so nice! The detail is superb and needed no cleaning. I really don't know what to say. Assembly was tricky but well worth it. Just be careful around the port and starboard "escape pod" areas. I had to modify some stuff for them to fit. For painting, I based it in Flat Light Aircraft gray and went to town with the detailing. I started by painting the various panels in grays, rusts, blues etc. I had a bunch of pics of the huge Falcon model I saw in Brooklyn with the Magic of Myth tour that I used for reference. I then painted in grease streaks and other scuffs. I used a soldering iron to burn in damage to the upper port side and forward starboard side. I weathered these up too. After all of the detailing weathering was done, I gave it an overall wash of dirty blackish type color. The only airbrushing on this kit is just a tiny bit on the rear for the exhaust. Good luck finding this kit. If you EVER do, be prepared to fork over a nice chunk of change. These usually sell for anywhere between $300 and $500 on eBay. Guess what I got this one for? $85! Can you believe that! That is what they originally retailed for. Someone listed it on eBay with a Buy-It-Now of $85. I was on as soon as it went up and when I saw it I almost fainted. I bought it instantly. I could not believe the deal I got! After purchasing, I was also told this kit also was previously owned by Steve Dyzmo, the founder of Master Replicas. Pretty cool huh?
