    Testament to your work because it looks bigger than that! Thanks.

    Darth Saber’s Millennium Falcon -Bandai Perfect Grade WIP

    Awesome job DS! I can only hope to get a result as good as yours! Can I ask what kind of ball mount you’ve used? It doesn’t look like a Panavise. The thread looks bigger than 1/4-20.

    That looks amazing! Can I ask how big it is? I have a 1/350 TOS to build but thinking these smaller 1/1000 kits could be a good primer for building that later on.

    Thanks Joel. Good to know I haven’t munted something during construction!

    I’m getting there with my build, finally. Not sure if I have an unwanted gap in my assembly between the mandibles. Did everyone else have a gap here?

    Thanks, Lab! Very much appreciated. For the life of me, I can't find that particular model of Panavise you used. A 1/4-20 thread seems very small to hold the Falcon up, but beyond that, all of the units I can find have the knurled ring for locking onto the model, not the hex bolt as per your photo.

    And because I might as well make it four posts in a row, has anyone used Mission Models Paints for their bird? Apparently, it is amazing acrylic to airbrush. Durable and easy to use without all the issues acrylics typically have in an airbrush. I would be keen to hear what colours anyone might...

    Is this really a Panavise? Because all of theirs look like 1/4-20 camera fittings, whereas this one looks like something else. M8 thread maybe?

    Here I go again, Lab, being all needy and asking more questions. I'm curious how you routed the wiring out of the falcon? I'm thinking of using one of these Panavise mounts since it has a hole in it for cabling. Hopefully, it will be robust enough as it is hollow, as opposed to the usual ones...

    Hey Lab. Seems I was a twit and forgot to actually click on the link in time to download the STL file. Ugh. Any chance I could be a pain and ask you to fire it up somewhere yet again? :-(

    Thanks for the quick reply. I can now power on and not worry so much haha.

    Kokkari, beautiful work! Exactly the subtlety I am hoping I can pull off on mine. Can I ask, did you prime the maintenance pits before assembly or just whack the whole thing together and prime as one? I’ve already installed one set (and glued it) and now I’m worried I won’t be able to paint it...

    Question using dry pigments for shading and detailing

    I see modeltrainstuff.com has the weathering sets for 30 bucks USD. Seven colors means $4.30 each roughly, pretty good deal I reckon. I’m travelling to the US in a week and am gonna go to Blicks and buy some. Bit more expensive there but shipping will be zero so works out the same as...
