Is this the cockpit that is going to be part of the long time build of the Millennium Falcon?
Hey TG,

No. This is the travel version that will go to conventions, events, etc. But it has DEF been a great practice build for if/when we ever build the real thing! :)

Hi Gang,

Time for the "End of the Weekend Update"

I got back to work on the 1/4 Scale Console. I would really like to knock this out and mark it off the list! I laid the decals in place and began to dry fit the tiles & greeblies to make sure everything fit

Of course I added a flashlight behind the panel!

I then designed and fabricated these new boxes for the backside of the upper instrument panel

I designed, laser cut and painted these silver end caps

An absolute shameless plug for the YouTube Channel! ;)

Back to the full scale Nav Chair head piece! She's almost ready to be molded!

I'm really taking my time with this piece

Thx for your kind words :D To answer your question: No, not as of yet. Although I actually thought about giving it some kind of small animation. Some blinking or sth. Nothing to fancy tho ;D
I think animating it would be amazing! I think you are correct, nothing too fancy just something to give it life. LOVE IT!

Hi Gang,

PICS FROM DALLAS!!!! Enjoy!!!

The guys created a new nose platform

I originally wanted a smaller platform but it created a real balancing issue for the nose - so we went bigger

Removing the smaller platform

Hi Gang,

WOW!!!! 1.7M views! You guys/gals are all amazing! Thank you so much for the continued support and positive comments. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of you!

Now I know I have been focusing a LOT on the 1/4 and 1/6 scale builds. The cockpit is in Dallas so I had to fill my time with something... right? With that, I PROMISE... I am planning on another full scale and Falcon related build! It's going to be awesome! I'm just waiting for the CNC machine to get up and running so I can begin cutting the necessary parts. ;)

Thanks again, everybody! Love you all! :)
