Minor paint tweak... I appear to have the time...
I'm killin' myself on this tiny canopy glass thing... Question: should I go original miniature & just do no 'glass' at all (& take out the 'glass' at the gun wells), or leave the wells enough alone & keep trying to do the Cockpit with .005 clear styrene?It's good to understand what that detail looks like zoomed up, but revert back to an image that is scaled right for the work you are doing
Josh, you mean there's no 'glass' on your amazing & perfect Falcon kit?I was hell bent on my 1/72 was having a glass canopy... until I saw a comparison photo of with and without. And at that scale clear styrene doesn't mimic glass well. With 'glass' it just made it feel like a toy, so the decision was made to go open canopy. I dont even notice there's nothing there and am glad I went in that direction.

Okay, that sinks it. Open for me too! Thanks mate!
Honestly, that's what I was gonna do, but last time I carved that kind of small clear styrene with my sharpest X-acto knife I gave blood & used many band-aids. It's worth the price of a couple of large pizzas to avoid that again... man, that is a nice lookin' Falcon there!
