As much, and possibly more so, than being absolutely impressed with your work and that it CAN be done, I am grateful you are doing it. To me, the model you are building helps to preserve, in a historical value, the importance of the originals, and removes being so precious from the equation. Not that this model isn't now also precious. The difference is, we have a chance of seeing it, exploring it, interacting with it, even if in photos.

LOL!! Thank you all!!
DocH - that was very kind, most kind of you to say all that! Thanks!

OK, another update, some pics of the LEFT/PORT side and engine.

Again, this is still VERY MUCH a work in progress. I still have to finish connecting the engine, inserting that 'pillow' bulkhead section to the front of it. All the painting/weathering still has a ways to go. This is all the 1st an 2nd 'layers', more to add, then a final 'mist' overspray.

Thanks again for all the support!

Your words are well chosen. The Star Wars builders of these Studio Scale models on this thread reach out to the wonder and enjoyment of many and will do so for generations.

Wonderfully said...my sentiments exactly!.
These replica miniatures are true labors of love & the joy they give the builder & also the folks that follow along the build in pictures & for those that see them in person is simply priceless.

Not much else I can add that wasn't already said.....
Unless you went back to 1977 and prefectly cloned the ILM models...or something.
Deathstar II next.....
