Something scratch built. I don´t know exactely what it is but it is visible in each landing bay shown in the original movie as well as in ep5 of the mandalorian. I think it is something like a crane/lifting device.
Chaz Gordon Nice, Hopefully we will be treated to a Razor Crest in the not too distant future. I have heard that the docking bay he lands at in the Mandalorian is the same one that the Falcon blasted its way out of.

Christian Lehmann Update: Two new pics added. Seperate from weathering the buildings are ready. The area below the streetwill be used to store the power supply of the starship and diorama illumination. A real problem seems to b to find propper figures in this scale. First idea was to use gauge N figures and modify them but they look very small. I ordered gauge TT figures now. Maybe I will use a mixture of them. It is science fiction .
Treehugger Ooh, I've always wanted to make such a diorama. I might want to copy this some time later. :] I got all kinds of led's and stuff for some other project (1:350 Enterprise NC1701A refit). Somehow I would ideally want to avoid relying on using styrene, which seems both expensive and a little too tedious imo for such large things.

Treehugger What materials would you recommend using for building something like this?

Christian Lehmann I used high density styrol. I made templates of plywood for the circle shaped parts. I bought a hot wire cutter to cut it.

Chris P Looks amazing, I`m curious how it turns out!

Christian Lehmann Some pics of the actual status added. I stopped the diorama part now in order to start with the space ship. Besides this I will continue to cast, scratch build and paint some dio equipment like vaporators, droids or boxes and crates which is a very time consuming process.
Christian Bruer Wow Christian, that comes out stunning so far. I much admire all the nice details you created in that scale. VEry very nicely done. I am looking forward to the next steps
