Thanks Stu. Your awesome build is one of the threads that inspired me to tackle the 5' MF. Old school will always be the best school!This build is looking amazing!. Came together really quick!. Amazes me what can be done with 3D printing, much admiration for you. I'm too 'old school' to go down this route haha.
Cheers dude...I actually never thought about it, but yeh, you're right, I could look into building some scaled up versions of other OT ships. Probably not the Star Destroyer though!wow!
nice work Geek1138!
How'd I overlook this thread,/
Your build is going really fast.
I dont know if Id have the patience to model all the greeblies for this bird.... you are going to have a hell of a parts library when you are done
enough to do any other original trilogy miniature if you wanted!
You have convinced me to get a resin printer.OK, another section modelled. U can get a crazy level of detail with resin printing these days and some of these parts are pretty intricate. There is no clue as to what some of the more unusual pieces were originally used for by just studying them in isolation. but there are some choice objects among them.
Does anyone know ; when they went to build the full size Falcon for ESB etc, did they use any of the full size tank/car/engine parts, to populate it, that they had taken from the miniature kits to make the original 5 footer?

Difficult to show the detail in photos with the grey resin but it should come out in the painting/weathering stages
Cheers dude, that would be awesome...was wondering how I was gonna tackle the Kool shade issueSince you are going for an "all" 3D Printed bird,
Let me know if you could use a print out of these for the engine rings
This is the Virtual Kool Shade I modeled in 3D back in 2008, it was measured and derived from original 1970s era Kool shade.
The renders show a clean version of the Engine Ring grills but I plan to ad the bends and other damage (as in ANH) to the VKS grills
It has been adapted for 3D printing optimally around 25 microns resolution ( or less) Best with Polyjet Vero grey
