FINE MOLDS MILLENNIUM FALCON Part 5-Cockpit

More lighting!!! This time in the cockpit.

The photo etch set includes a large piece for the back and side walls of the cockpit.  I mucked up the decals when I went to apply them but fortunately I’d taken a scan of them before and could reprint a set.  Once I’d done that they went on smoothly the second try.

FINE MOLDS MILLENNIUM FALCON Part 4-Engine Lighting

VLOG_005

Starting a new build and Mad Max-ing up an old car kit for part of a Group Build on the SFM:uk website.  You can check out the details and the entries here: http://onesprueatatime.co.uk/dir/viewforum.php?f=10

So here is the new Vlog.

Tried to improve the quality of the video each time, so this was shot with an external microphone and with some additional lighting. Also moved myself so I haven’t got my back to the window and can get extra light in that way. Feedback on the videos very welcome as still on a massive learning curve for these.
