so have little idea ofd accuracy et al

It's from Star Wars, you nut! :lol_3:

Very nice miniature you've made there, Build Mon$ter, particularly the heavy weathering. Have you considered doing any larger ships such as corvettes or even a Nebulon-B frigate?

Master at arms, lock Mr. Baumann in the brig! Punishment will be 30 lashes, and will be administered at 12 bells. :mad_1:

Beautiful little model of the ship that made the kessel run in less than 12 parsecs!

That's really cool!

Big fan of Star Destroyers and the Super Star Destroyer, too. I can imagine your 1/350 Falcon perched on the back of the bridge of a 1/350 Star Destroyer.

Perhaps Trumpeter is planning one in 1/200 for 2017.

Of course, the hull shape will be suspect.

Lego would do it just to show off.

It is not unreasonable to assume Trumpeter will botch up a triangle...

I actually bought and built the Lego Super Star Destroyer... and sold it for the same price after my cats started using it as a launch platform..

Thank you all,
Actually I'm a huge 1/350 scale fan all I build is in that scale, and speaking of larger starships, there are two I'm working on right now that are my own design, so scratch build, both are just under two meters in length will post a pick.
