A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a friend of mine asked if I would be up for replicating what JediRob had done here.
The project began with cutting out bits from the Millennium Falcon. Then, the holes left by the cockpit hallway and satellite were plugged up. Once construction of the new cockpit, hallway and engine bay were done, all the gribbly details were added. In the end, my original plan to reuse the original back deck of the YT-1300 fell through, so it was built from scratch.
Here’s a photo log of the project. Enjoy!
I was eager to try, so I hacked up my YT-1300 and got started constructing the new portions of
This project was an absolute blast. I learned a ton about working with plasticard and figuring out how to build the various new bits. The cleint is super excited to paint it up, and once it’s done I’ll be sure to show pictures.
If anyone’s familiar with Birchbox or BarkBox or any of the many monthly “surprise” box subscription services, Loot Crate is like the same, but for geeks. My wife did Birchbox for a long while, and I always enjoyed seeing her go through her box to see what goodies she’d gotten. I’ve been wanting something like that, but for geekyness, and so I found Loot Crate. I’ve been following them on the Bookface, waiting for a month’s theme that I’d enjoy. June’s “Transform” wasn’t really my thing, but July’s “Villains” sounds too cool to ignore. I used one of their various promo codes to get $3 off, and signed up.
This landed on my desk at work Monday, and Itook a few pictures of what was inside for you!
Let’s open it, shall we?
Libby is waiting patiently to find out what’s inside!
