Default 32" FALCON BUILD

Hi all, thought I'd show you my Dagostini Falcon build & I must say lm enjoying it, Exellent quality.

Metal guns primed & barrels drilled out....
















Adding my own details to the main hold cabin...

Making barrels with some poundshop gel pen tops... & bits...

Added pipework etc.. Just wanted to create a functional feel to it by adding pipework etc as l don't imagine I will open the falcon up much to display its interior. It's just my interpretational detailing and not studio set accurate!! I'd have to spend a fortune on certain sites lazer cut printer parts that l feel are way over priced!!! But I'm looking into a grid floor at some point!!





Altered seats...


Corridors started...

This is superb work Dark view absolutely fantastic.
I had started to collect the issues but at the end of the day the costs were going to be too much so I sold them on.
This is turning out to be a great replica and well worth having in anyone's collection.
Please keep posting.

Default Congratulations on both counts....

Thanks for the close-ups Darkview, especially of your very own scratchbuilt components - indistinguishable from the kit parts. It's going to be a wonderful model when finished. Well done too on giving up - it's a hard hard slog, with temptations along the way, but I'm sure you'll get there!

Kindest regards

Patrick

Added detail. The white pipe (near central) on the wall is a paperclip bent & cut...
