Just received an early christmas present to myself last night: the packet of blueprints published by ballantine which includes the plan of the falcon's cockpit (I had previously been working from a 2 by 3 inch scan of the same). Was up till 2am working from the plans and building the entire cockpit structure from scratch. There are some discrepancies... do I go on from here and ignore them, or adapt all the work I've already done to the accurate model? the former appeals to my lazy side, but the latter calls out to every fiber of my obsession.
Anyway, thanks for all the support folks! You've kept my standards high, and kept me up until unreasonable hours of the night (although granted I would have done that on my own).
the next few updates will probably be schematics of all the panels I've completed for those of you who might want to use them as references.
