Two more models for my Millennium Falcon collection/madness. Well... just sold the little one cause I have one of the 1/144 Bandai already. I just wanted to know how good could it look.

So this is the little 1/164 scale Revell model/toy. 21cm long. 8 1/2 inches? Fun little project, good enough for what you pay. Ditched the toy buttons, covered the holes with putty etc and that's it really. A 10 minutes build and it's ready for painting.

And this is the 1/72 scale (more like 1/92 if my math is correct) Revell Millennium Falcon, ANH version (well... kinda). Since the model is a bit too basic, a bit dull to be honest... and the panel lines are so bulky... I went for the beat up, dusty, creamy look (like from the escape from Tatooine) to cover these flaws. That means heavy filters, liberal use of the airbrush, etc. It has some minor modifications to make it look better, like a couple of greeblies. But I didn't go crazy cause it's not worth your time. I also sanded down some stupid profiles that were on the mandibles making the model look chubbier than it already is. The dome is a bit flat on the other hand. So it's a bit chaotic! Tall sidewalls, flat dome. Then I reworked the turret cause the original just sucks. But again, for the price (€25 on second hand apps), you can't be wrong.

It barely fits inside an Ikea Detolf

A few years ago, I posted a pic of my meager collection and honestly, I really have not made a significant dent in it since. I still have an unfinished 1/350 scale PL Refit Enterprise sitting in a glass case waiting on finishing touches. Anway, I did have a Revell 1/144 Saturn V completed in my collection and was never happy with it's lack of accuracy but last year i noticed several adds on FaceBook where someone was selling Saturn V lamps for $400.00 ish. So , taking an old floor lamp, some LED strips and some Poly fill. Presto, I repurposed my model into a lamp for my home office. and it all cost me less than $50.00. Just thought I would share.
