    Whew! that one was kind of a pain. This is the SF Papercraft Millenium Falcon.There are a bunch of camoflaged mistakes on this model. Fortunately by the time you stick all the crap that goes on the falcon on they dont show up :mrgreen:. overall i think it came out pretty well considering the problems i ran into getting it together, these mainly centered around the upper and lower hull plates. I had to cut slits in several places to relieve the pressure and get things to align right. Good thing i had places to do it where something else would eventually be glued over the spot in question. I'll leave it up to your judgement on the final product.

    Looks pretty darn good to me sidewinder. I can't see anything wrong with this at all. Good job! It's strange, though, because I didn't have any real problems putting mine together when I built it. In fact I thought it all went together really well, but then I suppose each build is different :mrgreen:.

    Looks good,

    I found a very detailed Falcon on a polisch StarWars site there are more ships to download (free).
    Haven't build it but it looks very cool, the only thing you need is ad extra glue-flaps.

    The Falcon is my favourite Scifi craft and I love what you've created.

    I think you did a great job dnalor! Anytime you scale a model up, problems with a model any problems it may have will scale up exponentially. :)
