    Continued a little on the Falcon

    * weathered up and mounted the pits
    * assembled the cockpit
    * dry-brushed the hull with my main color. I didnīt bother about the engine cover yet. I might do the detailweathering to the rest of the hull first before I concentrate on the engine area.

    After a really long break, I finaly found enough motivation to continue on the Falcon and started with detail-weathering on the upper hull. After 4 hours the right hand back quarter is finished so far.

    and here it is, my finished upper hull ... so far
    As mentioned somewhere earlier, I will do the engine cover later when the first plant-on parts start to arrive. The sensordish will be done later too, when both shells are combined and I donīt need to put the upper one on the support structure anymore.

    And here we have my latest update

    Just finished building and priming the starboard mandible. Headlight installed and it works Looks a little blue-ish on the picture but its less blue in reallity
    I have to check for some more reference material first before I start weathering the mandible.

    Your weathering job is looking absolutely beautiful. One of the best I've seen. Like it's been said for years, the paint/weathering is what really sells the falcon, regardless of the accuracy. I am really loving your falcon so far.

    Just curious, to cover the dark spot in the middle of the engine, would it work to cover the complete area around the light with silver electics tape ?

    Will start painting the mantibles the coming days

    Good looking update pics . Thanks for sharing .
    Did you light - block the interior of the mandibles where the LEDs are , and what did you do to alleviate the ‘ gap ‘ in the engine area ?

    Thank you Ged

    Well, as for your question, I did nothing for both areas you mentioned. The mandible headlights are orignaly sitting in a 1mm tube already.
    As for the engine light, I was thinking about some minor modification to the curved boxes, but although the missing LED is noticeable, I am fine with it as it is

    Finished the engine cover... for now This is what I am able to do without the missing plant-on parts. As far as I researched, five of the seven remaining issues will deliver them.
