    Impressive work here with the wiring. It's intimidating to me. Do you solder your wire-end connections and than seal with heat shrink tube?

    Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

    Mucho gracias! I've decided to do an ANH version with the blockade runner in the main hanger bay. As such I won't be doing the garbage shute. I've ordered a Blockade Runner off Shapeways. Here is some other stuff I'm considering: - resin main hanger bay - battleship turrets for the main turbolasers - ANH bridge panel off Shapeways - tractor beam projectors off Shapeways I'm not worried about being 100% accurate to the original ANH filming model. I just want to get those few distinguishing features that help it stand out. The rest will be some scratchbuilding old-school style with various greebles from my spares! I will also be using LEDs to light up the engines and main hanger bay. Not sure yet if I'll be doing the fiber optics for Windows. You have definitely inspired me!

    I'm going to start mine over Christmas break. What aftermarket add-ons do you feel are the most worthwhile?

    What makes a good/bad fitting model?

    The plastic can creep under it's own weight. There is also internal stresses from the molding process the settle out over time. Not to mention heat, humidity, and thermal cycles.

    Also a reminder old kits may have fit better 20-30 years ago. Plastic creeps and warps over time sitting in the box.
  8. I also gave up on Hyperscale years ago for these same reasons.
  9. Found what I needed. Search over.

    Pretty much nailed it above.
  11. Looking for this part if you have one in your spares, would really appreciate it! I can pay for shipping. I'll take more than one if you have it. A Sherman or M10 kit would have this. I used to have a kit that got trashed with this part, know I'm kicking myself in the head Thanks- Toad

    Sad day in the Marvel universe.

    They did "pre-film" several cameo scenes already so we will see him in several upcoming fills yet.
  13. Turns out, I need this part in 1/48 scale, not 1/35th!
  14. I'm also told this part off the Tamiya M10 is "close enough". EDIT: 1/48 SCALE needed
