    Well after a long, supercold, superbusy winter these are almost ready. I have just a few molds brewing now and these will be ready. Tony will start a FS thread at the appropriate time, he is in charge!

    These were a lot more work to clean and mold than i expected, but here we go. Brass thru the landing gear, some parts have been separated out a bit from there shapeways companions. Some parts will have some temporary supports for strength (especially in shipping) that will need to be removed.

    Overall IMO these will be a terrific affordable alternative to getting these parts off SWays. Big thanks to Tony for letting this happen.

    Let me know any ?'s if you have them. The last of the parts are almost done and will update in this thread.

    thanks
    mike

    Mike - if its not giving away any trade secrets... what kind of prep did you need to do from the shapeways print? These are super clean!

    Thanks! So, when ever people are talking about the 30" Falcon, they actually mean this one? Even Randy Cooper?
    Sorry for all the questions, but I dont want to order the wrong one.

    Yep. The new Cooper set is for this Falcon - you got it. Another way to be sure - If you see angry reviews about not being able to put figures in it, a lack of action features, and it basically being just a useless hollow hunk of plastic with stickers on the sides, you've got the right one :)
