Got more a little more done adding the sidewalls back on. Trying to get them lined up a little better than I had before, but, this kit seems to have issues that make it a bit harder than it should be.
I remind myself its not the perfect grade version at all, so just to makenit work best I can. Didn't even plan to do this much already. Probably should change the title to reworking the Falcon model with a repaint.
So the end piece here, without having the instructions anymore, and the part being close but still different than the real model, I was hoping I was even putting this part on correctly.
Holding on the top piece, it actually looks pretty good. The other side however, holding the end part up, theres about a 1mm gap. I'll get it to work, despite having to make some stuff up as I go. Not like its a filming model anyways.
Speaking of models, most everyone has seen my AT-AT collection...well, last night I saw someone who lives about 20 mins from me selling this on the FB market place for $40, so of course I gotniver there today and bought it. Guys garage was full of Star wars stuff and tons of model kits. I actually asked it he was building a studio Millennium Falcon or other ship. But no, he just collects them and hardly gets the chance to build....all our life stories.
With the gang and now makes 12.
Up close. Middle back one.
So once I get the Falcon pit together and fill in any areas with filler, sand down, and paint again, then maybe I can finally add details.
The weather here in south west Idaho has been nuts.
How has the weather been where everyone else lives?
Last Monday got to about 80, then the next day was like 75, then at 3am it snowed about an inch or more, which is crazy for it to even stick this time a year. The next day was like 65, so snow all melted by afternoon, got to 30 degrees that night and the next day was back to 80. For like four days of time, thats a whole lot of changes in temperature.
