    My take away from the videos is that you have become an expert at sanding.

    Hi Gang,

    Time for the "End of the Weekend Update"!

    Work on the Corridor Ring is nearing an end... FINALLY! I added the exterior trim, filler and then primer and sanded smooth

    I've also be working VERY hard at the 1/4 and 1/6th scale "cockpit kits". I've been able to improve the overall structure and assembly which I hope will make things much easier!

    The canopy has been the biggest struggle/hurdle to get past

    Hey K,

    Thanks so much! No worries snapping. I snapped a LONG time ago. ;)

    Believe it or not I'm actually more pumped/excited than I ever have been! I found that sweet spot between making vids and posting images and I'm having a total blast!

    Thanks J!

    I'm really happy with how those little pads turned out. It was so much fun weathering them. And it took no time at all! When does that ever happen?

    First, I weathered the 1/4 scale greeblies! The flight yokes...

    I also FINALLY finished up the nose section of the 1/6th scale cockpit!

    The floor is 1/16th MDF board - they fit perfectly

    IMG_20190213_115041_zpsbtcs9fxp.jpg

    Still lots to do but I love the overall look and feel - especially the pads

    I have just discovered your millennium falcon build and I'm in heaven. I was searching for Star Wars gizmos to give me ideas for my movie room build and your pictures are priceless to me!! I was wondering if you ever post 3d or laser files of some of the parts you make...or can recommend a place to get them.
