And finally some shots with landing lights and for the first time I used the landing gear.
And some pictures from the sides.

Today I sprayed the final clear coat on the model. I lost some paint on the upper cannon, don’t know why it doesn’t stick properly, I even used metal primer in the beginning. I would have preferred a plastic cannon :rolleyes:

I lost this Greeblie. It is from the deago magazine 100. people pay crazy prizes for this issue, so I thought I could scratch built this little thing. I thought of a paperclip but I don’t have a metal primer left. Any easy ideas?
Even if loosing greeblies is really authentic ;-)

I'd use rod styrene & use a hairdryer (or heat gun on low) to soften it so you can bend it into the proper shape. I used tons of it on my MPC Falcon a few months ago...

You can also get plastic welding rod in many materials and diameters if that helps at all.

Or, solid-core copper wire, either with, or without, the insulation, can work well, and it holds it's shape well.

My baby Girl was born 2 weeks ago and the falcon finally landed on my wall ;-) I am glad it is finished since I don‘t have a free minute left.

I bought a regular TV mount. You definitely need to be 2 people to install it since it weighs 40 pounds overall.
It definitely can tolerate at least 80 pounds but I‘ve got mixed feelings that my other Kid sleeps beneath it from time to time :8

Great idea that T.V. wall stand :cool: :cool: (y) (y) Despite the manufacture's "80 pounds weight" I wouldn't leave the kid sleep underneath.

Thx, to be fair deago also offered a quite similar TV stand so it was not really my idea. I was too late to use an internal mount as some guys did, but then You also have to display it on the ground. And I don’t have free space for that. Other possibilities are Beamer mounts but I like the option to show the bottom side.
I am glad that I recently found out that it can carry up to 180 pounds and I used the biggest screws available for it so I am cool with it now.

Some weeks ago we had a photo shooting with our newborn and the photographer took 2 shots of the falcon. Now I got them, what do You guys think?:

Is there an expert for lighting?
The light isn’t working anymore. Well in the gun tunnel it works normal but the front lights and the back is really low.
Weeks ago it also glowed a little when it was switched off, so i didn’t use the power cord Then I tried again, suddenly the light was really strong for a moment and then it didn’t work correctly anymore.
Tomorrow I will use batteries to check if the power cord has a malfunction. Otherwise it would really suck, would there be options to fix the main board? I used a power cord with the correct specifications, only 1 number differs:

-Input: 100V~240V , 50~60Hz 0.4A Max (Original is 0.5A)
- Output: DC 9V 1A / 1000mA

Could that be the reason? I thought the output and the - and + would be important.

BTW still practicing taking pictures:

Also with batteries it isn’t working properly… first it didn’t react at all and then again the same problem, in the back nearly no light, the front also only slightly…
With additional cable the light gets stronger but I don’t know if i should just take a stronger power supply
