After working on it for ages, my PG Falcon is nearly ready for painting and weathering. Since I've added custom lighting to it (making up most of it as I go) I'm posting some pics here, in case they help anyone. Thanks to StevenBills for his hints as I started the process and the encouragement to start this thread. (I have a build gallery on Flickr with a ton a photos (with captions), as well: Bandai PG Millennium Falcon Build).

Based on the landing gear, this is the ANH Falcon, but I've added the ring of landing lights, as well as red running lights, a few cockpit console lights, and the two red side-of-cockpit tube lights. All the other lighting is the stock lighting kit. I also added some figures bought from falcon3dparts.com. All LEDs and related accessories were purchased from modeltrainsoftware.com, and I purchased a sampler pack of optical fibers from thefiberopticstore.com, but their website is being weird, so they may not be around any longer.

Very nice all around. I take the orange part is 3D printed? Very nice and sturdy and stand looks fits the build to as well. Looking forward to more.

The part looks like the one designed by Lab. I’ve posted it here with his permission.


Yep, that's it. Thanks for posting it :) Once it was printed I sawed off a chunk to make room for the hallway interior piece that sits at the top of the ramp (didn't feel like printing it again). I also modified the big hole in the .stl file to hold the threaded piece I needed.

Nice work!
And cool avatar. ;)
Thanks!
I was bored yesterday afternoon, so instead of working on the Falcon I did my best to replicate that mash-up of logos. While I did my best to make sure the type was correct, it's not quite faithful to the original, as mine has everything nicely aligned lol (edit: did my best on the original version, as well)

symmetrical and as-close-as-I-could-get-to-the-original versions

All taped up and nowhere to go. Been using my friend's airbrush, but he has a couple sick family members (looks like it's nothing serious, thank goodness, but I'm still paranoid). Days like this I REALLY wish I had an airbrush.....
