    the size of model is impressive, however, for a little bit headscratching, how can the big boxes supported within? I am worry of crumbling to the center...

    dnalor Active Member do you mean? crumbling to the center?

    Inside is a plastic tubing support system.
    Also does the inside have support ribs.....
    The ribs are sandwiched between carton.
    On the sandwich carton :) stands the curved hull ribs..
    In the center on top of the sandwich carton stands a square reinforcement part.
    the hull itself is carton incl the printed hull sheet.
    The center gun lays OVER the square and is itself supported by almost an inch thick multi layerd carton..

    When that collapse.....then it should be ;-)

    Ah everything is glued with a hotgun and superglue from bison (not the hamburger kind :) )

    a little update..
    i have attached all the little greebles on the hull..
    Put the last (i hope) strip on the top of the cockpit.
    Glued the 2 dark hull holders in the front next to (left and right) the loading hatch. (there where the nose parts are attached to the curved hull..)
    and insert a cable from the back of the cockpit tube to the hole in front of it.

    That looks awesome - nice innovation to increase the realism.

    Your next project? A pair of TIE fighters in the next room (hallway?) chasing the Falcon into the display room!

    Great project dnalor, congratulations, it looks amazing mounted like that!

    That looks amazing! I'd say the cockpit looks just fine as it is, although it is hard to tell from the films. Certainly it looks like the exterior when it was in the Space Slug.

    It really fits right where you put it! Very cool! If you ever sell your home, the buyers may insist on the model! :)
