    Yea! A game. This fell off mine. Can anyone identify the part? I've scanned through the instructions and came up empty.

    I am also going to guess its from one of the maintenance pits...check forward left and right pits on the top side of the mandibles.

    It's sprue "U" part 3. Which I believe goes on the cockpit tube over the photo etch band. I didn't use the photo etch there, so the piece is still on the sprue. Check your cockpit tube. (That's what she said.)

    I believe it goes here.

    Thanks again for sharing these images @gardensnome .

    Hoping to purchase this Chronicles book sometime in the future too , but I’m wondering is this all the images of the falcon to be found , or are there some of the 32” as well ?

    Hey fellas....it just occurred to me that a PE set would be nice to have for this build, but I looked on Paragraphix site and don't see any. Who's got that, anyone?

    thanks

    From what I understand Paragrafix has a PE set in the works.

    Awesome, thanks Pete. I'm still aways off from starting mine. Also waiting for Tony at 308 to work up the ESB gear boxes. I'm surprised Paragraphix didn't get to this sooner. Oh well as long as they're working on it. Thanks again my friend

    No problem, gt. Glad to help. I visit the site at least once a week to see if he has anything but I'm not in a rush, so it's not an issue for me that nothing's come out yet. I'm a ways off from building mine, too. I have a couple of other projects on the go that I have to wrap up first.

    Yes, there are a few pages of the 32" Falcon in the book but nowhere near as many as the 5ft. I'll try to get them scanned for you sometime this week.

    Thanks gardensnome,...I hope you didn't damage the book to get these images,.....no distortion on the pages

    John
    I had to use both hands to push the book down on the binding edge to minimize the distortion as it was being scanned. I was concerned that it may damage the binding but it seems to be holding up so far. I've had a request for some of the other ships but I haven't decided yet if I will proceed with any more.

    @gardensnome ,

    Mate , that’s a very generous offer .

    I’d rather not put you to the trouble , and certainly wasn’t expecting it . You’ve shared more than enough . Thank you .

    I mentioned that I hope to purchase a copy myself in the future , and I was just wondering if it would contain photos / images of the 32” as well ? . Your reply that it does , is plenty impetus to continue saving up towards one .

    I hear that, I'm a strict ESB guy, love the extra landing gear. I wasn't going to even bother with the PG kit because of it. Then I realized I could probably mod the MPC parts to work...then it occurred to me that I could just ask Tony to work some up, as he has so many other things for so many of us. That Tony is aces, super dude.
