    It kinda does, but I see the Route 1 decal above the cockpit and various other details and weathering that seem to indicate it's the big one.

    That looks like the smaller falcon to my eye. 32"? (don't break my arms, I haven't researched han's old hot rod in years) Either way that looks dangerous for the model.
    Cockpit has the Allied Vans decal - 5 footer

    Yeah, I've transported the 66" Enterprise and the 6' Galactica, but this is gonna take some extra 'boxing'. In a nutshell though, it'll be supported by the middle stand, and the docking ring pipes, so the trick will really be ensuring it can handle 'shock' of bumps on road. But all that's a ways out! :o

    Thanks again for the nice feedback! Here's some updates for ya. Almost done with the top Jawbox - lots of little parts and details on this one vs. the bottom. Then it'll be onto the maintenance bay pit installs, then the armor plating. Getting into the final stretch!!

    First up are the guns - mostly done now, go into primer next.

    So just have a few more parts to put on the jawbox, primarily some truck frames, a couple of armor parts for the front jaw and a few detail parts, then add a few more pipes/bits and the Jawbox will be done!

    Jawbox Top completed and test fit checks. (Final parts at front, and piping completed)
    Will get bonded to the hull, then primered up soon! (last 2 shots has some temporary styrene overhang panels started, and the walkway has the plating added.)

    Well, here's a few more getting us towards that ultimate paint day!!!

    Here we have the top forward recess pit, walls built to conform to the hull

    Then we get the "8RAD" pit mocked up in place, then settled in to the rear port Pit. Add some side support structure to get the walls the right width, and then bring on the plating to fit it all properly to size.

    Just not enough words to convey to you Sean on how mind blowing your build is, loving every update.
    I'm dreading the process of installing the pit assemblies, great to see how you are tackling this. That 8-rad pit in place is another milestone, ughhh...running outa words here haha... .
    You are nearly there at the end, so cool to have shared this journey with you my friend.

    NS4, Stu, joberg, Jaitea, peza, faustus, blastmaster, stevielewis, MUCH appreciated and THANK YOU!!! Very kind and nice of you guys!

    She is beginning to come together like any good Hunk of Junk should! I've certainly made some errors here and there along the way. I wish I was patient enough to get all things 'perfect', but for me now, it's just keep putting her together and moving along. I actually really enjoy the 'eyeballing' component of building this. Having some amazing friends/support to help guide things towards perfect dimensions has been tremendously helpful and appreciative for all the intense, years and years of investigation, sleuthing, deconstructing, reconstructing, analysis, etc.... folks have put into this topic!

    Faustus - regarding How Much?? I haven't even thought that far ahead, and really have no idea - it always comes down to what someone is willing to pay I guess. That pendulum swings FAR and WIDE on subjects like this.

    Laspector - same thing they used back in the day, it's a common 'nibbler' tool, 1/4", all over the place on Amazon, Ebay, etc...
