Gluing the figures together were trickier and took longer than I imagined. These took me a couple of days to make up to my satisfaction. Such tiny and delicate parts, and the plastic wasn't responding to the super glue well. The shapeways figure kit were design so that you can pose them. But they didn't look natural. When positioning them into the seated position, they were very wide legs as well as their arms were wide apart. So I had to modify them to for better poses as well as using filler in the gaps

You may notice that I removed the lower legs of Chewbacca so that I can fit him into his seat without removing any of the cockpit parts. You won't see the lower limbs anyway as they are hidden below the cockpit console.

Ben Kenobi waist area was all built up using filler.

There weren't much room for stormtroopers limbs to be posed and they looked like robots, I wasn't happy with the poses. I wanted a more authentic looking pose, so I broke the arms off and re-position them. These were very fiddly to re-glue and I used filler to fill in the gaps in the joints.

Much better

It took me most of yesterday to paint the figures

Luke was too spread eagle to fit into the hold, so I broke his legs and re-positioned them again, not excatly screen acurate as during the escape from Mos Eisley, Ben removed his outer robe. I couldn't fit them all on the same seat, so Ben had to take a seat on the separated seat.
