Matt, the box art of the early MPC kits sure brings back happy memories for sure. I had them all, the Stardestroyer was another I drooled over
The Falcon pic on the MPC box is actually the 5 footer filming miniature, in pristine condition, with all her original donor kit parts present. A lot have fallen/broken off over the years sadly
The scary & geeky thing I can do now, is name the kit every donor part comes from in that pic
I'm very close now to a final working blueprint, which means hull construction can begin very soon. I better start clearing some space. She's around 1.7m x 1.23m in size, so my armature will allow me to work on her with mounting points in the top/underside quad gun turrets & both docking cones on the sides.
