    Had the pleasure of staring at this thing at SWCO. Amazing detail. Everything looked spot on and he did an incredible job. Really great work.

    Its missing the 3M reflective tape. But in reality.....its the most amazing thing Ive seen in a long time. I think painting the 5 footer would be easier to replicate than the 32 incher. I mean you can really get down to the nitty gritty with the paint chips at this scale.

    There's a couple of other things missing as well as the 3M reflective tape but I'm not going to harp on them. I mean..this guy is the FIRST to finish one of Studio Scales holiest of holy grails. It's amazing.

    Not only finish it, but hit it out of the park.

    I was thinking the same, looks a complete ESB Falcon to me!.
    I know there's a fair amount of parts missing, but they are of the ANH original condition miniature. Lee has built by looks, the ESB version with extra gear boxes & not added the missing parts. Although having said that, he has added a few parts back that are not present today, so I guess it's his call as to what he wanted to add or leave off.

    Thanks Faustus and Eagle. I didn't take into account that it was based on how it is seen in Empire so what I recognised as missing was from how it looked in Star Wars.

    I was glancing over this thread and was reminded of this, which I saw a year or so ago: http://www.modelermagic.com/?cat=850

    I think Lee's leans more towards the accurate side, but this is also an impressive model. And it means there are at least two five footers out there.

    Ahhh yes, a much admirable build also, but is more in the category of a general modeling build due to its non part for part detailing & sizing.

    Looks like it.......& he's fixed the quad gun on the turret amongst other wee things.......he's filled in details on the engine strip using the LaunchBay Falcon for reference

    It's great to see the 5 footer look so healthy again
