Anyone know of a place online that has pics of the part trees with the parts attached???

Or does anyone have the parts that they'd be willing to scan??

thanks in advance.

Don't know if I really follow you. Do you mean the part trees for the small AMT/ertil kit or the kit bashed parts that was used on the real studio model? There were two studio models built for ROTJ, both in different scales.

OK, I have a trashed one. Let me know if there's something special you're looking for and I'll try and get pics of that part. It's been built though so I don't know exactly how much help it would be.

The piece I'm looking for is a long half cylinder that has some vents at the tip. Probably a quarter inch wide, maybe five inches long. I have no idea where it goes. I'll post pics of it later today.

And thanks!

Here's a pic of the parts I'm looking for. The parts outlined in red are what I was describing above. it's hard to tell, but at the top of the rod there's a half circle laying flat, then three vents on top.

I'm also trying to ID the round thingies in the blue circles.

Looks like Dallas Corbin's taxi from The 5th Element... (the bottom of it).

Did the model makers use Tyderium parts for their buildup?

That's the theory. The long skinny parts "caught the eye" of a friend of mine, and he believes them to be shuttle parts. I'm trying to verify

This is indeed the underside of a Korben Dallas Taxi. I just dug this out of a box recently. I'll have more pics on the website eventually

Those parts (you mean the cylinders, right?) doesn't seem to come from the AMT shuttle. I can't find any parts on my kit that matches those. The landing gears could be made into that shape if they are heavily reworked but I seriously doubt it. How tall are they?

Rats. Well, I guess my pals "theory" was wrong. Oh well.

I'll keep digging. Steve, thanks for researching for me. I appreciate it.
