    This falcon was kit bashed. I tried to use as close to the real models as ILM used on the 5 footer. I even have all 5 champion sparkplug decals and Hurst shifter decal in the right places. I had to scratch build the front landing gear hatches. Fabricated the armor plates aroung the cockpit, shaved the sides by 1/4 inch. I tried to get it as close to accurate as possible. I wanted to add more lighting but I will save that for my Fine Mold Falcon when it arrives. I hope to do a diorama either. faclon in Docking bay 94, falcon in DeathStar hanger, or Falcon on cloudCity Platform. Not sure which yet?

    Yeah, I am actually trying to get up nerve to attempt a 3ft scratch build Executor. I have started collecting battle ship models for bashing. I have 5 so far. Once I get about 15 of them I will begin. BTW i do take donations of battleship / aircraft carrier parts if anyone wants to contribute to the cause.

    Here is mine- an Ertl with the illusive Falcon Kits upgrade...

    I also included a pic of my cutaway version--you can really see what the Falcon kit upgrades do for that kit when you compare the edge detail in the 2 pics
