Well Mark...I did it...I pulled the trigger and bought that screen, along with the paragrafix cockpit detail crap! Now I have to tear apart my model and redo everything cockpit related! Thanks a lot you...you...well, I'm trying to keep this PG-13!

Thanks for finding this gem! I can't wait to try this! I even ordered their USB plug-in so I can deal with the wiring in a more simple manner! Please forgive me in wanting to copycat what you've done but I've learned a lot from your examples! BTW, the screen was out of stock until this weekend! so apparently, I'm not the only one getting this!!!

Cheers mate and as always, I'll be looking forward to your next update!

Clay

oh, I have one more shipment and then I'll have all the parts to this monstrosity!

Well done Clay, glad you got one in the end. Cool ThumpUp I did see they were out of stock on the screens, but within a few days had some more in.

Just be very careful when cutting the panels out. The part goes very flimsy until you attach the etched brass panels on.
One tip I have for you is, when you put the decals on, have a light shining underneath so you can align the light holes. Also do a couple at a time and allow to dry overnight before putting the next couple on. That way the decals that have dried won’t move when holding the part to put the next ones on. I did mine over 3 days.
When applying varnish, only use acrylic as the decals have a coat of acrylic on them already.

I look forward to seeing your result soon.

Mark

great work.You really are a master of weathering

Thanks Carl. I’ve no plans to alter anything structurally, just some simple weathering and maybe highlight the cockpit more.
I’ve even bought a Luke Skywalker in the same scale in his orange fight kit.

Happy New Year to you ThumpUp

Mark


Where did you purchase X-wing pilot?

Um...Mark...you're slacking on your build!! Because of you, mine has come to a grinding halt!

No, seriously, I hope all is well and like everyone else here on this forum, I'm looking forward to your updates! I keep sending Facebook forum people to this forum to check out your build!

Cheers mate!

Thanks Clay.

I have now all the parts to finish the build. I am going to continue with the official build and custom one together, so I will be starting again very soon.
I have also bought a circuit board with remote to add sound effects for not a lot of money. I just need to program it first, then hopefully will be able give details on where to buy and show how to program it and where to download the sound files for anyone wishing to do something similar.
I’m doing a lot of research on how it will all go together and re-painting all the internal parts. But stay with me, should be starting very soon.

Regards
Mark

AAARRRGGGGHHH! I will continue to curse you!

That is awesome! I will not be adding any sound effects! I'll just be damn happy to finish mine...then revisit my "complete yet not finished Millennium Falcon" build...I'm sure everyone here is waiting to see what you do!

cheers!

Official build started again. I am repainting a lot of the parts, particularly the hyperdrive and all internal areas, so it is taking a little longer than expected. I am also trying to keep the stages in the right order, rather than building the likes of the hyperdrive all in one go. I am going for detailing in these areas as these will all be displayed on mine when finished.

I have taken a lot of time wiring my own extra lighting parts that the cockpit endures. This has had to be done sooner as issue 77 puts the whole wiring loom together and gets enclosed with the top part.
I will be using the 9v external plug for mine so a 9v supply was spliced into the 9v socket on the kit.

Here are some pictures of the hyperdrive so far. Note, the painted parts are just the base, more weathering and extra pipes will go in on the next stage.

More soon.
