looking good.
for some reason, i can not post in the album! it keeps giving an error every time i try

where did you get the pictures in picture number 7? would love to get them....
18. May, 09:12
Michael Osadciw
The lights? These are what I have: https://www.captainjacksmodels.co.uk/ourshop/prod_6231393-Star-Wars-Model-Led-Fibre-Optic-Millennium-Falcon-Light-Kit-AMT-ERTL-Size-Falcon-Bases-460mm-Long.html. They worked great, but I wanted to add a remote switch but that didn't work. I ended up getting a motion sensor switch to do what I wanted, so I'm going to work on that next and get it finished.
18. May, 12:24
Spanjaard
thanks, no, i mean in picture 4 (7 was a typo) you have some nice shoots of the interior. where did you get them?
18. May, 12:28
Treehugger
I can't help but wonder, are you having difficulty figuring out how to control the lights, or, do you only have control for one light, but require two controls?
18. May, 12:56
Michael Osadciw
@spanjaard: The interior was really basic so I scratch built some additions, like the rear chairs and parts of the console. I also found some diagrams of the cockpit walls in the Haynes manual for the Falcon and made color copies of them. I completely scratch built the quad gun stations because the kit had nothing there, you could just look straight through it.
18. May, 13:24
Michael Osadciw
@treehugger: the lighting kit has two separate circuits, each with its own power source. I'm planning to hang the kit in my office, so I didn't want to use the supplied toggle switches. I tried using a remote switch, but those each ended up needing their own power source to work and the model ended up having too many battery packs in it, and the remote switches drained too much power. I asked the folks at evandesigns.com and they suggested motion sensor switches to replace the toggles. I tried them and they worked perfectly. I just need to finalize the wiring and button it up before I paint.
18. May, 13:28
Treehugger
Interesting. Presumably a motion sensor would require some power draw over time, if only ever so slightly.
18. May, 14:08
Spanjaard
thanks!
18. May, 14:22
Michael Osadciw
Yeah, the person at evandesigns told me that the motion sensor is much more passive and will draw a fraction of the power that the remote switch did.

I've decide to make up a paint scheme for the Falcon and feature a few of the blue stripes from Lando's days, and add a new patch that will have a partial Republic emblem on it to represent an armored patch that Han found from an old Republic Cruiser. The kit is so inaccurate that there isn't any point in trying to "accurate." But really, the filming models were so different from each other so accuracy doesn't mean ,much in things like this.

Apart from the bad fit, there are a couple of glaring omissions: The engine exhaust part is a big clear piece as well as the quad-gun ports. However, there is nothing behind any of them. I scratch built the gun pod bays and the engine exhaust was reworked with a paper mask that I put in between the clear part and the engine lights. The cockpit was missing a lot of major parts and the main saucer halves were warped. It's lacking in a lot of detail as well and is in a strange scale. BUT, because it wasn't that great I figured it'd be a good opportunity to put lights in something; if I wrecked it, no big loss. I don't have much time right now for this hobby which I love, and dealing with bad fit is not worth my time. If it's old, it better be a Tamiya kit. 🙂

There's one big issue with the kit which you didn't mention - its height. All the side panels are too tall, and thus the various after-market replacements so it looks more like the studio miniature and less like a toy.
4. June, 19:52
JD
I had been on the fence purchasing this kit for years, and now I know why. Those older kits, especially StarWars stuff are a real pain to build, and are sadly lacking in detail. Couldn't agree more. I still like to collect them though, probably because of the box art.
4. June, 22:43
Michael Osadciw
Yeah, forgot about the height on the sides. The side panels look strange and the way their detail is molded they almost look vacuum-formed. Eh, I'm making up my own paint scheme so no worries about accuracy anyway. 🙂

how much did you pay Neuling to have his miniaturization machine??? you guys have to stop torturing people to make them look like scale models and make pictures of it.....
wow Michael. i am out of superlatives. museum quality, perfection.... perfect dio from any point of view. some of the pictures look like reference pictures!
18. May, 08:56
Michael Osadciw
Thanks so much. I like to try and start with a story and find the right figs to tell it. That MasterBox kit is brilliant. Diorama in a box basically. I've also discovered that my figures looked SOO MUCH better when I started painting modern figs with better sculpts instead of the old Tamiya figures I had used way back in my late teens before I took a 25 year break from modeling. The better sculpts allow me to use a wash technique for shadowing which really helps.
18. May, 13:31
Spanjaard
yeah, I remember when I used Verlinden figures for the first time, back in the old days (before my own break(s) ). A good figure can make a hell of a difference. but you did a lot more than just using good figures 😉

What make you think it is a Mercedes ?
11. May, 06:57

I inadvertently cropped it out but you can see it in one of the reference photos (I added those later) that there is a big MercedesBenz symbol on the radiator cap.
11. May, 12:31

Ok. More research done. It is NOT a Mercedes Benx, but a Mittlerer Einheits PKW Horch 901; with a Mercedes radiator cap for some reason.

I think those two tanks never faced each other in combat. You should go for earlier Pz III variant. Do some research, if accuracy is your goal. If not, have fun.
9. April 2020, 18:44
Michael Osadciw
Hehe. Accuracy is not. I had a Tamiya IIIL I was going to use in another project and I switched it out for a command version, so I had a 80% finished L laying around. Usually if I can get the theater of operation right, I'm happy. I'm more interested in story telling with figures. 🙂 Thanks for looking!
10. April 2020, 13:25
Bogicevic Vladimir
No problem. I was in that stage few years ago. It was pure fun. Good luck with your project.
10. April 2020, 14:12
Michael Osadciw
Vladimir, I took your advice and dropped the IIIL from this idea. After looking into it more, the times the two vehicles were there was way too different even for me. 🙂 Sadly the Panzerjager that I thought would work best now costs a fortune on the secondary market. Maybe truck or half track then?
29. March, 12:01

watching... I just built this Matilda and it was a joy, best engineered kit I've ever had the pleasure of putting together.
29. March, 12:16

Nice! It's good to hear that Tamiya is still engineering the best stuff. 🙂
29. March, 12:51
Bogicevic Vladimir
Glad I could help. You have a lot of options, it's all up to you, what do you have in stash, etc... I like trucks and half trucks much more then tanks. If you need an idea, maybe I can find some photo that will make you move.
29. March, 14:50
Michael Osadciw
I think I'm settling on a truck. There are some nice early war truck kits from Dragon and ICM that could work. At the rate I'm going I don't think I'll get to this particular diorama for at least a year. 🙂
