Hello gentlemen

I bought this kit, knowing full well that it suffers from all the faults that most other Falcon kits do... tall sides, wrong details and generally bad proportions. I really just bought it so I might build it with my son... He agreed to, but when the time came he was more like..."nah... not today dad"...

So I figured, what the **** I'll try and get the proportions right.

Lots and lots og filing and sanding. the hight of the mandibles - If I go by the x-wing game Falcon - should be about 3.2 mm tall... meaning that the material of the top and buttom plates on the madibles are about 0.5 mm... Like I said, lots of filing and sanding.

I was just going to use some styrene til do the sides, but the detailing is actually rather fine, so I decided to reuse the panels from the kit, trying to always decide which detail to keep and what to cut away.

Here's where she's at.

Bit of off white... Well I guess the white doesn't really matter... When the weathering is done on this thing u won't notice if it's not quite the right white color.

Startet the red panels. Guess this is one of those modeles you put to the side... And paint a little here and there when you're not really in the mood for something bigger.

BTW I just saw that tiny Bandai one... Uhg guess I could've just gotten that one... Oh well this one was cheap, and I made it myself

There're many like it... But this one is mine! IMG_20210311_223626.jpg
