Completed cockpit interior:

Technically, these are called 'Tiny Bastard Levers' and had to be fitted individually; they also 'pinged' out of the tweezers and across the room quite often!



Front instrument panel fitted



Side instrument panels fitted



Bulkhead and door fitted



LED panel fitted

Well there's a point were attention to detail becomes labourious fiddliness - for me this would have crossed that line. I'm so glad that I can live vicariously though someone not as cackhanded as me.

Beautiful.

Sir! The probability of successfully installing the Tiny Bastard Leavers is approximately 3720 to 1. Z :lol:

The real test in labourious fiddliness is yet to come...



But looking good so far, Mark  :thumbsup:

Hope its okay to post this here?  I am a HUGE fan of the Millennium Falcon, one of the greatest ship designs ever.  I really wanted to subscribe to the part works but my cheapness would not allow me to (I am greatly envious of you, sir).  To make up for my skin-flint ways, I bought a 'Hasbro Hero' Falcon from Argos and, in my spare time have been kit bashing / scratch building it. I've never tried doing something like this before but am having a lot of fun learning. Its not finished yet, but this is how my version is looking right now:



I'm not sure why I glued a bag of cement to the base or how I'm going to remove it, but there you go... :)

I look forward to seeing how yours turns out, Earthlet!
