    So, I'm doing the DeAgostini Falcon thing. While I'm getting all my ducks in a row for that project, I've renewed my search fo a model of the Ghost from REBELS.

    I know that Google is my friend, but evidently. we're on the outs, because I've tried every variation of Star Wars REBELS Ghost model that I can think of, & only get results for the LEGO ship, which I have. I figured the community here would know if these would even exist at this point, or if anyone was working on it. I've been a bit surprised that there hasn't been much discussion about the ship on here.

    I really like the call-backs to the Falcon in this thing, & would love to practice some weathering on it, before jumping feet first into the 32" Falcon.

    Thanks to all.

    Many thanks.:thumbsup

    I'm hoping for something a bit larger, but that looks great.

    I am planning to build one after I finish my titan, but that is a few months away... but I am planning to build it at 1/72nd scale. That puts the pilot at 9/10th's of an inch tall. I could go a little bigger if you ask nicely, but not by too much. That thing is huge! :D

    Well, Ive tried and had some success. Unfortunately, it is as big as the BMF and bulkier. GHOSTAA.jpg

    GHOSTCC.jpg GHOSTBB.jpg I know it isn't perfect, but its a scratchbuild and I didn't have the small model to go by. The side cannisters open for a hallway on each side. the cockpit will seat 2 and bubble canopy will have one seat. She doesn't really have any landing gear. I was thinking of cutting open the sides to create ramp panels but its all build around a box. A lot of cutting and eyeballing. Im thinking of starting over but its cool to have it parked near the BMF.

    After finally getting the small diecast and the cake topper, I can honestly say that I really want to go back and redo it or at the least build another more accurate model. I love designing toys for whatever. I build an EBON HAWK in the vein of Kenner's Millennium Falcon. I really just wanted to see it as big as the BMF and have the small Phantom shuttle as scale. Granted the scale is off but I think it works as a parallel to the BMF. I know it isn't exact and its distorted but I still dig it. Thank you for the kind words.

    Well, let me ask it this way:

    Will it be from ... Revell? ;)

    kennerg3.jpg kennerg5.jpg Taking inspiration from some of the fine folks on this forum, I decided to try and build one from the ground up ala Kenner scale. It will have a ramp :) Landing gear will be stationary but there will be a cargo pod delivery system that will be made. I have a lot more work but I hope you like it.

    I'm really happy with the look and the proportions. Still have a lot to do but the bulk of the work is done.

    LOVE this so much. I've been formulating my own plans to take a crack at this myself, and you're providing a solid reference point/template for how to approach it.

    Thanks. Just ordered one. The plastic lid was the closest I could find. Thank you 101. I'll post it attached when I get it. By the by. It looks perfect.

    Looking at the cake topper 'model', the engines appear to be 'mag-lite' style flashlights, of all things... or similar.

    I've been following Randy Cooper on Facebook. He's building up a Ghost right now. Check Here.
