CONTEST WINNING FALCON
Be sure to see the photos at the end of the page.
Below is an EXCELLENT Millennium Falcon model that was the Overall Winner of a televised contest (the second oldest in his country) in Logrono, Spain. Rafael Mateo used our Side Panel kits for the exterior, but used his own scratchbuilt cockpit set. Great work, Rafael! This is not a singular victory for Rafael. His other accomplishments include:
Overall winner, better model in the contest: Scratch built TIE FIGHTER.
Land vehicles section: Silver medal: AT-AT.
Sci-Fi vehicles section: copper medal: TIE INTERCEPTOR.
Overall winner, better model in the contest: X-WING FIGHTER
Sci-Fi vehicles section: Silver medal: SPEEDER BIKE
Sci-Fi vehicles section: Gold medal: SNOW SPEEDER
Scenes (Dioramas): Gold medal: IMPERIAL PATROL ON ENDOR. (With 8 scratch built resin cast stormtroopers and a AT-ST).
A WORD FROM RAFAEL
"I strongly recommend to any other modellers the use of the "Side panels detail set" for building a perfect Millennium Falcon. It is a little money for a great work and finish quality.
I'm another VERY satified customer"

There are other photos that I will try to put up soon. Rafael also has pictures and templates available for making the engine grill (from styrene) and pictures of it's assembly. I will try to get those put up soon! Write Rafael Mateo and let him know what you think of his work!
