A little question..
what is happend with
that was one of my major reference sites..
Looks like the Account was suspended. This happens a lot. That is why when you see photographs, or models, that you like, you grab'em while you can! I ran across these sites yesterday, haven't had much time to check them out, but they have some really nice reference pictures.
This one has a lot of "Blueprints".
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...
hum...how 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.
She looks fantastic, Sir.
That looks awesome - nice innovation to increase the realism.
Today the falcon goes home.
i could build for ages and it still wouldn't be ready..
Now it's nice enough .
He fits just in my car....i hope he survives the trip home.
With the transport a little part fell of but nothing what i couldn't fix with some glue
I installed the wall mounting uh..thing
Hung the falcon on it and i hope it will stay up there for a long LONG time
So guys, my project is done, Where is my new project
A picture of her all lit up, please. What a great addition to the house.
ok 1 with the lights on...
But i have to check the movies..somehow it's dark....VERY dark..
Maybe i had to put more lights in the cockpit..
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!
And my next project is that Imcold xwing..but i'm still figuring out how to start.
i'm a little affraid of the build.
Yes it looks better then i thought.. i was affraid that you couldn't see the top,but worked out fine
When i sell the house...this baby doesn't stay.
i worked a half year on her..
She is priceless
That's is one bad ass looking falcon & it even sets it off mounted slope like that.
Your a great fox builder.:thumb:
Job well done, it's a beauty!
thanks i'm very proud of her...
just like my son..
He tells everybody who comes for a visit to look....my daddy made her..
my wife was shocked she didn't know it was THAT big
