Looking to do my first build... HIC . Where is the definitive information?


New Member
I have finally come to a point in my life where I have the tools/time/money to finally do some great builds that I have wanted to do for a decade or so.

I would like to do a Han in Carbonite as my first build and I am looking to do it 'properly' with no cut corners.

I have a workshop with large CNC equipment (mill, lathe, lasers, router etc.) a paint booth and I have extensive fabrication experience.

I am looking for a good cast of Han and CAD data for the frame/chassis. I also have several 3D printers that are big enough to do the side panels and greeblies etc. if they are available in the 3D model format.

I am finding tons of information but it all seems inconsistent and contradictory to make it screen accurate. Please point me in the right direction.

Help me RPF you're my only hope!
