With a scale of 1/241 it is close enough, and only twenty parts :) Of course I glued them and finally gave a thin black wash:

According to the dimensions on the packaging ("actual" length 26.7m, kit length 100mm), it should be 1:267 scale. However, Wookieepedia claims the Falcon is 34.37m long. Revell's website says it's 4 5/16" (109.5mm) long, so that would be 1:313 or so.

Still, it looks close enough. Does it come in different packaging in Germany? My one came in a foil packet, and all the parts were still on the sprues.

I have it and it is about 3 1/2 inches wide and 4 inches long. The FFG one is larger 4 1/2 inches by 5 inches. Still I agree with above it is close enough.

Once we're holding both the Revell kit and the FFG kit, one is an earlier version and the other is the cool one with all the guns and big engines!

My dealer had both packagings: the shown blister and the foiled-in box. Of course I was glad to see what I was paying for :)

The Star Wars stats are maddening.

Too many "official" sizes if you ask me, e.g. Tie fighters being either 6, or 9 meters long. A "little" bit of deviation there.

The FFG Falcon comes with stats for the Millennium Falcon itself, piloted by Han, Lando and Chewie, and a somewhat more "stock" YT-1300 piloted by J. Random Smuggler, with inferior stats. Even if this Revell model is somewhat different to the FFG one, it'll do for a nameless ship. Cheaper than buying two Falcons, anyway. :)

I posted the official stats over on this thread for the Millennium Falcon.
