I tried downloading the plans for this, but apparently they are not in the main computer.

Gorgeous stuff, so very tempting.

It wasn't my idea, I was bullied into it by these fine fellows!  ;) Still, now I've started it I'm enjoying it enormously...

Right, you've inspired me! I'm going to get my own long-planned 'build thread' for this forum into some sort of order and start posting as soon as.

On the cockpit seating everyone seems to be going for the 'dirt ingrained in the crevices' look but, in my experience, it's the raised parts of leather seats that lose their colour and wear thin. With that in mind I've tried to dry brush the seats in grey so they look worn and grubby (photo 1). Then I've used a dark brown in the crevices to lift the wear and used a very light touch silver dry brush to give highlights (photo 2). Given that this is my first ever 'proper' model I'm quite pleased with the result!

Wookie fur is very loose so you may want to stipple the co-pilot seat with fur. You know, for authenticity. :)
