    I did some maths and found out that the model is about 1/5 ... 1/6 scale. The texture could be a tad crisper but that should be an easy task. The gears in my head are already spinning..! :)

    I know VERY well this feeling! I just cannot see a model (or something that can be converted in a model) without starting to think... a lot of mind constructions... :D

    @DanBKing : :violin:

    ...

    Oops, chose the wrong smiley - here is the correct one:

    :animated::hammerhead::animated::hammerhead::animated:

    (of course! :D:D:D ;) )

    @Tonino : :iagree: To be honest, every time I see an interesting building or vehicle I immediately try to break it up into buildable sections in my mind. Then I nod to myself, yep, it's buildable, and move on to the next one. :)

    Whenever I see a model like this I immediately try to envision re-scaling it to 1:18, seriously.

    I have already begun tracing the lines to turn the template into a vector graphic... ;)

    NICE! I was gonna make it today, but I guess I'll have to wait… 'till next year.

    I thought The Force Awakens was incredible (I've seen it three times and counting) and I'm sincerely hoping we'll be seeing some models of the new ships sometime in the not-so-distant future, especially Kylo's shuttle and the new X-WIngs. Loved the design work on those

    Yep, the movie was great fun! When I saw it the first time I thought the title was wrong. It should have been "The Falcon Awakens"! :D;)
