I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. I don't have money. What I have is a particular skill set that makes me a nightmare for talented people like you (nagging, begging). Release a kit and that will be the end of it. I will not look for you. I will not pursue you. If you do not, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will,................ bother you 24/7 until you give me what I want.

The pics with the ramp is simply amazing...if we didn't have an indication of other objects around the model, we could think that it's the real 1:1 scale MFo_Oo_O:notworthy::notworthy::notworthy::notworthy:(y)(y)(y)(y)

This is amazing. Certainly too large for most people's homes, but still outstanding work anyway. Let's just hope you measured twice and cut once, so you don't find the two halves mismatched when joining them!

Cheers guys...work is progressing. Definite feelings of Deja vu, as I go thru the process for the fourth time. in some cases, but at least this is the last side of the last half
So added all the boxes and attached hull plates

Yes it will require a lot of material for the mold but let's think outside of the box people!

Thinking inside of the box:
Making a mould for that would be an enormous undertaking. You would have to use tons of fiberglass and reinforce it with a welded steel cage. I would estimate the materials alone would be $3000-4000 dollars minimum. I couldn't even imagine the cost of labour, heavy equipment and supports that would be required.

Yeah,..and your point?

Geek can do it.

I'm sure that he CAN do it if he wanted to.
The question is, will he?

TazMan2000

Just to be clear I am joking about this.

This is the real plan:

At some point in the future Geek will not be online for a while.

He will be my guest for a time building me the Falcon.

When he is finished you may do with him as you wish.

On a serious note I assume this is shipping in halves to the museum?

If so will you fully assemble it for test fit first or do that at the museum?

Ok, thanks for letting me know.
I wasn't sure if you were joking or just being overzealous. The last time I heard, "think out of the box" it was from a manager that didn't know concepts like physics and economics.

Oh I wish it could be but it will have to go on the lottery list. Even if I had the money to hire Geek to build it, I would need to ship it to California which would likely cost more than my entire collection just for the shipping. God, Geek, and the Museum only knows what the model itself is costing and then I need another building built to display it.

Geek is my first call if I somehow become rich. The wife will be second.

I have just run out of ways to say, wow, amazing, etc. So I joke.
