    LOL! Thanks guys!
    ixtore, I don't know how exactly much it weighs yet - but it feels quite heavy, maybe around 80lbs?

    Here's a quick update.
    1st few show the Hummel Part that goes on the engine upper and lower 'decks'. I originally took the two Hummel parts, glued them together and cast them. As I was getting ready to paint them, I realized the original had a pretty good little gap between them. So, I was able to break the original parts back to their two halves. I then molded and cast them up, put a .020 piece of styrene between them, and assembled each individually. Then, to match the original, they required a good chunk of the bottom be chopped off, to get the proper size/height to fit into the 88mm parts. It was a fun exercise getting those levels of details closer to the original.
    2nd set show the additional kit parts that are being added to the front port body wall. This adds back in several parts that were on the original during filming of ANH. (Still need to add Hasegawa Sherman part). Then a quick shot of primer, then the last pics show the parts applied to the port wall. Once the weathering gets painted in here, it's gonna start looking really close.
    Thanks,
    Sean

    This is breathtaking!!

    It’s one thing to build from a kit...it’s another thing to painstakingly scratch build a model of this scale, and amazing detail. I can’t begin to tell you how impressive this model is.

    Yeah, I'm loving watching this progress. Hope to get to see it in person again when it's done.

    And... as far as Star Destroyers go - go for all 8 feet of the ESB version! I'd buy that for a dollar... :-)

    Super cool! Looks great seeing stuff like the McLaren triangular part that's now missing from the Falcon. I'm curious about the dome-shaped piece that covers where the holes for the carrying struts go, though.

    Thanks again Fellas!!
    Faustus100 - Yes, I think the beginning of this thread shows the light tests. It's going to be exactly the same lighting look/diffuser as the original filming miniature.
    NKG - Thanks, that part, thanks to Tsophika, is the Nichimo Elefant.
    Dan - You guys are welcome ANYTIME again, love having you over!
    Jamie! Much appreciated - and yes, I've already got the Star Destroyer started - just stalled it for this baby! Looking forward to restarting and finishing that replica!

    Here's a quick paint update. I'm still working through 'experimenting', and right now, just the rear damage quadrant is getting close. I still have lighter filters to apply, much more weathering, and techniques to tone down the contrasts and bring it all together. But, at least you can see how it's starting to come together.


    Working through the battle damage weathering. This is the first layer.

    And the full shot, the entire upper side needs filters/layers. Also tested out dirtying up one of the maintenance pits, this will get refined to bring it a little 'cleaner' and contrasty.

    Thanks much everyone!!
    Faustus100, I think I mentioned this before, but she 'might' be around 60-80 lbs at this point?

    Another brief paint update today. Making progress on the bottom rear half. Still not done in this area, quite a bit more paint 'speckling' to do, and some more filters and oily areas, then it'll be on to refining the top half of the underside. The photos' colors are not quite as warm and show more contrast than in person, but you get the idea. One interesting thing that really shows off here, the gun platform and the jawbox are still completely base coat paint. You can see how adding the weathering and filters tone down the pure off-white, and makes the final base color that nice warm grime/gray color. It's really neat to see the color transform like that. Also added some of the under hull damage areas.
