Thanks.

Music is stock music CD that I bought years ago for SMA. Had about 12 tracks and i edited a bunch of time variations for stingers etc...

Yeah the PE is really nice, gear baffles and cockpit tube stuff will add too.

Gonna take work, Scott. But you're up to it, and the results will speak to your effort.

Thanks Q. You're right, there are going to be alot of hours in this one.

Got the video in the can for this next update but here's some pics. Decided videos will come out Sundays at 8pm ATL.

This resin is the old Falcon Kits set. Decided to detail it a bit. First, drilling 122 holes in the gear 'things''


Need to use these kit parts so a cleanup was in order


Modified the kit bay to fit snug. Still in the process of getting it filled in and then I'll detail a bit later


HH Miniatures PE


Adding styrene detail to the Falcon Kits resin



So far, a very enjoyable build.

Thanks - yes they sure do.

This weekend's update. Just about done with these, a few tiny 'shocks' left to scratch on the 'toes' and there's also some scratchbuilding a part that connects the two rear feet together. Man, lots of parts in this little assembly. Tedious but fun once you get in the zone.

Nice job Scott.  Tedious work but worth it in the end.

Genius how you rolled the pieces into a round configuration!  Makes me want to add LG to my MPC Falcon.  Does HH offer the ESB 4 legged version?  Anyway. great work Scott and thanks for the headbanger music!!!  ;D

Thanks - wasn't my idea but it works great. The mousepad is key.

AFAIK he only sells this one set - there are a total of 6 baffles - basically enough for the ANH Falcon and one spare.
