  1. No worries! I always have something on the go. Finalizing a 1:144 TIE fighter interior project right now...
  2. Terrific paintwork! Have you thought about replacing the canopy with one with window openings? There are two on Shapeways, including one I designed. To blow my own horn in that regard...
  3. The Mr Hobby 1608 LEDs are using the metric SMD nomenclature. Metric 1608 SMDs are the same as 0603 non-metric SMD LEDs. Those are 1.6mm x 0.8mm x 0.6mm in size. Prewired 0402 (metric 1005) SMD LEDs are your best bet. They're easily bought online, and are only 1mm x 0.5mm x 0.45mm in size. And the prewired ones are easy to install since no brain surgery-style soldering is required! I've designed Star Destroyers to match the Bandai SSD kit, and the lightable versions contain tunnels for 0.5mm fibre optics and 0402 SMD LEDs. https://www.shapeways.com/product/RMENANAJ4/tiny-lightable-space-destroyers-17mm?optionId=119845844 You'd need to do something similar for the Bandai kit. You'd drill out the engines, then route fibres back through the centre of the vessel and stick your LEDs in there. In fact, it doesn't even need anything as small as an 0402 really, since you'd be relying on the fibres. Even if the sides of a fibre were to be exposed owing to the diameter of the hole you could paint it to match the hull.
  4. The Bandai PG Falcon is expensive, yes. Worth it? Yes! https://sites.google.com/site/millenniumfalconnotes/bandai-s-1-72-millennium-falcon
  5. Hi. I've posted this review elsewhere, but... https://sites.google.com/site/theageofplastic3d/moebius-models-2001-a-space-odyssey-eva-pod
  6. Another writeup: this one on adding animated video displays to an EVA pod model. https://sites.google.com/site/theageofplastic3d/animated-eva-pod-displays
  7. I've written up a review of the new Moebius 1:8 pod, for those interested! https://sites.google.com/site/theageofplastic3d/moebius-models-2001-a-space-odyssey-eva-pod

  9. I've started a writeup on the subject, if it's useful. https://sites.google.com/site/millenniumfalconnotes/lighting-models
  10. >I wish someone made 1/350 landing gear for the Falcon model! Someone does. :) Landing gear, boarding ramp, open cockpit, gunbay windows, round dish, replacement sidewalls and maintenance pits...
  11. My review of the Bandai 144 Falcon includes a list of third-party add-on parts, including the sidewalls and maintenance pits that I designed. https://sites.google.com/site/millenniumfalconnotes/bandai-s-millennium-falcon
  12. A bit late, but... https://www.shapeways.com/shops/the-age-of-plastic?section=Bandai+1%3A144+Falcon&s=0
