    Thanks Ged,
    Yeah kinda based on that but thought somewhere in the Han Solo earlier days it must have been covered and emergency flight or crash may have happened ;-).

    Yes will be doing the rectangular dish at some point. I'll show the use of material cover & how l used it soon.

    Very cool !! Having a hard time working it whats real and what's photoshopped. But doesn't really matter it's a great effect !! Probably one of the most memorable scenes in TFA when the camera pans to "the junk".

    Well done man !!

    this is the material l used for the Falcon shoot, its a Beige woman's Chiffon scarf under 2, I used scissors to cut and distress it and the good old Winsor & Newton Lamp black oil (that l used on the Falcon) with a brush and white spirit to fade it . . .

    Really looking fabulous, DV!!

    Any chance of some advice on how you got rid of those part numbers on the lower engine flaps?

    Did you use filler/putty first and then sand it down, or just sand the bare plastic until the numbers were gone?

    I've been following this since the start and just saw your post on the FB falcon painting group, never realised you were from the north east as well.
