    I will say this, it's really really inappropriate for that researcher to jump to "maybe she was a *****" just because her name is missing from a model. Would that have been what he imagined if it was a man's name? Doubt it.
    He wasn't specifically saying "love affair". Also, I had the impression that he wasn't "imagining" this solely upon these scrapings. His research and presentation was focused on the individuals behind the model, as well as the model itself. I might also add, that this presentation was held at a casual fan meeting, not any official kind of event.

    Hi guys. The scanning is coming slowly but surely as I have to do it after hours at work. Here is another (page 54). Hope to have another up later after I get home.

    I thought my Falcon was done! Stop posting all these incredible new reference pics! Aaaaaahhh!!!
    The pics are greatly appreciated. I'm finding a few things I can tweak on my kit to make it look even better.


    Wow, I'm so glad Superjedi is finding my scans useful. You are inspiring me to try to paint my own ESB Fett bucket. I have been keeping tabs of your paintups in preparation for my attempt. Thank you for sharing your stellar work, sir.

    Fair enough. Even in the case where he had specific knowledge, I think he could've said something like there were "personality conflicts between crew members" and left it at that. I dunno. I'm certainly guilty of saying boneheaded things to and about women over the years but I'm trying to do better. Having daughters certainly makes me think differently about things. Anyway, didn't bring it up as a criticism of you or anyone here.

    Thanks and welcome gardensnome. Your timing is perfect. Work has just been completed on the underside of my PG Falcon hull (just the tiny squares, rectangles and decals to add) and now it's time to start the topside.
    Really superb work by everyone on here!

    Here's mine courtesy of the incredibly talented and patient StevetheSwede!

    To all who have thanked me, you're all very welcome. It's really just my small contribution to this great community. I also hope that this will entice you all to pick this book up for yourself. Even though it's a bit pricey, the quality of the book is well worth it. It's like they had the RPF specifically in mind when they decided to produce it.

    Here are the last few for tonight. Hope to have more tomorrow.

    At @gardensnome , wanted to add to the chorus of appreciation and thanks for taking the time and effort in providing these images mate .
    Though I’m not building this particular model ( as yet ) , the details gleaned from them are tremendously helpful in my current Deago MF build , which is turning out to be a hybrid of both film versions !

    This will sound arty-farty, but your painting shows just the right balance between boldness and restraint. Colors and details pop without anything being too dominant. It's really hard to be precise to the original while still retaining the rough authenticity that makes the Falcon seem real. You really nailed it.

    Nothing looks good under flash that close up. How does it look in sunlight? That's what matters. You other pics are all awesome.

    Absolutely . . .
    I confirm Hunk a Junkīs oppinion about Unesī paintjob.
    Especially the shading of the different grey-colour tones on the hullīs surface are very cautious.
    For my taste the red tone is a little bit too much red, but thatīs not the point.
    I really like the panelsī yellow tone as it is agreeable muted. Amazing!
    Well done Unes. I love your work.

    AND: more HR scans with more details to discover.
