OK I've rebuilt the mandibles removing all metal & replacing with foamex.....hopefully will make any chance of droop gone

Some pictures of where I'm at with this at the minute

After doing a bit of modification to the depth of the sidewalls, I was concerned that perhaps the mandibles might end up drooping....so I replaced the metal with lightweight Foamex

Nice work dude.
Thanks DV,....not that much more to do (modification's....that is,....then onto painting)

Logical approach. Mine havent dropped a CM but drooping was a concern when building.

I just don't want to take that chance,...thanks Learman

For Halloween I’ve made a set of fangs with the Mandibles....linking them together to make sure I have the right toe-in & angles

Thanks for sharing your wonderful updates John (y).
Was the supplied cockpit interior unusable/un-salvageable , or did you just want to make one that was more screen accurate using your own decals , detail-wise ?
Either way , it’s looking good and I’m guessing your light bars will eventually be beautifully lit up too , along with the rest of the cabin !

dude... I can't believe you overlooked this detail.... the White "light bars" inside the cockpit don't line up perfectly in ESB.... C'mon man! ;)

Thanks Rich,....do it

I bought a load of highlighter pens from a £ shop....

50710721_2289350194620335_7702322210928590848_n.jpg


I removed the felt part & cut off about 10mm to get a rounded rectangular shape to make a engine nozzle-like thing

Here's the 32 highlighter pens glued together:

I unstuck a few since to tighten some gaps, but this is the general idea

Thanks for looking
