    In another post I mentioned I was working on a Millenium Falcon kit for my cousin.Id never built such a kit and I must say I really enjoyed it.The finished product looks really nice as long as you are at least six inches away.Any closer and the flaws such as brush strokes become apparent.I used a dark wash over the entire model.Time consuming and tedious at best.This is the first time I've used a wash over an entire kit and it was a learning process for me.But the Falcon looks good and my cousin loves it which is all that really counts.

    The FORCE is now with me and all I want to build are TIE-Fighters,X-Wings,Star Destroyers,and ofcourse the other Millenium Falcon kit I've had for 12 or 13 years.I'm currently working on Ol' Darth's TIE Fighter.
    Looks like my armored divisions wiil have to wait a while for reinfocements.

    Does anybody else on the forum build Star Wars kits?
    Just curious.

    When I was younger, I built an X-wing, a Tie-Interceptor, a B-wing and possibly an A-wing (I remember that there were 4 models in the set).
    I do not remember what manufacturer made the set, or even who bought it for me & when.
    I do remember that I sold them, along with all my other Star Wars stuff (I had a walking AT-ST with the box, and the Millenium Falcon!) at a Car Boot sale. :angry: :cry:

    I have and occasionally disassemble and reassemble a number of Star Wars Lego kits. Does that count? :grin:

    Yeah,that counts.I hear the vehicles from the rocket kits can be painted up pretty nice.
