Thanks Kim, I'm very proud of the paint job :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: I put the can beside Han so that you can get the sense of size .

:think:..... I should have place a smaller 150ml can next to him to make him look bigger, that definitely would have confused you ;) :whistle:

For every one else, the Han Solo figure already came painted :shhh: ........... :whistle:

No need to apologize Casper, it's all tongue in cheek fun ;) I just didn't want to take credit for something that I didn't do.

The Han Solo figure is a fee gift to all Build the Millennium Falcon subscribers. I'll be posting an update on the build later today.

Roy :D

Issue 13

The instructions instructs you to glue and screw all the Hall parts in. There are some more walls to be added and tubes/pipes.

I've got a lot I would like to do to the hall, including adding more 3D upgrades and also fibre optics. So for now, I've just test fitted everything.

Issue 14

The other end sidewall with door way and arch supplied and cushions have to be fitted around the edges.

The narrow doorway on the left is not in proportion or the right shape. It is either too tall or the arch on the right of it is too short.

I'm also not impress with the detailing or lack or it considering that this is advertised as the most detailed Millennium Falcon ever produced :roll:

ImageRBTMFP1 Sat 25 April 15 1 by Roy Lee, on Flickr

The wall is only test fitted. As with my previous post, there is a lot or work required for me to add the detailing and lights that I plan to do.

Havent got the upper part of corridoor yet but Im thinking of making floor removable! I think there might be just enough room to fit some pipes and wiring to represent secret compartments! Im going to have to work it out yet! Might also make a side panel open with pipes and wiring!
